Employee of the Month: Shaun Hutchinson at Urbnsurf

News

Shaun Hutchinson is Group Operations Manager at Urbnsurf. We met when WavePoolMag toured the Melbourne site this year. He's super busy, as you'd expect, but we love South African accents so we kept calling him on WhatsApp just to hear his voice. Most of the time Shaun was tucked back in the office redlining in the tasks department. Despite this,

Employee of the Month: Amy Hunt of Waco Surf

News

Everyone who works in the wave pool world at this point in time wears several hats. Partly because the industry is so young that clear-cut job titles are still years off. We've heard of CEOs taking on social media duties, fixing dings and handing out singlets to customers. There's a wonderful we're-all-in-this-together vibe among staff at the world's wave pools.

Employee of the Month: James Miles of Urbnsurf

News

James Miles is excitable. It might even be his superpower. He’s one of those individuals who bring enthusiasm wherever they go. And it’s not the cheerleading type of froth so pervasive across Tik Tok and Youtube makeup tutorials. James isn’t phoning it in. I don't think he ever does. Which could explain why he’s had such an illustrious career in

Employee of the Month: Giovanni Piro of Alaia Bay

News

Giovanni Piro is a tall affable man with an air of seriousness that is totally out of place at a wave pool. It isn’t until I watch him work, traversing the grounds at Alaia Bay and ping-ponging between employees delivering instructions that I realize it's the job that requires seriousness. I mean, on one hand, it’s just surfing. Fun, wet,

One Instagram feed, in particular, captured our attention early last year. The BlaiseyShootz feed kept up our interest with fresh perspectives and action of Kelly’s Wave in Lemoore. Not an easy task. Images of Kelly’s Dream in Lemoore have become as perfunctory and comfortable as living room furniture. And digital pixels of a Felipe alley-pop during the CT comp is

Employee of the Month: Let’s hit South Korea’s wave Park with Jina Kim

One of the great things about wave pools is that they level the playing field in terms of which corners of the world have good surf. South Korea is not the Gold Coast of Australia in terms of wave quality. But Wave Park’s giant Cove wave pool ensures consistent sizzling surf in an area that relies on the rare wind

When Surf Snowdonia openend up the first public wave pool with Wavegarden technology, Welsh champion Jo Dennison took the position as resident pro.
