Surfing our way to climate deception

Surfing - 22. Апрель 2019 - 19:45

April signals the beginning of the World Surf League (WSL) season where elite athletes ride the best waves on planet earth.

Were we to dream of a sport with the least environmental footprint, surfing would likely be at the top of the list - biological energy in the form of waves and human muscle powers the entire system.

No lifts, no lights, no stadiums, no fields, no engines, no gear except for a surfboard, shorts and the occasional wetsuit.

The disciplines of SUP and paddleboarding

Surfing - 22. Апрель 2019 - 18:14

Stand-up paddling and paddleboarding are the fastest growing water sports in the world. And it is easy to figure out why.

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is not a new outdoor activity. It dates back to the early 1900s when Hawaiians propelled themselves on a floating platform using a paddle.

One-hundred years later, the pastime became a serious business and expanded to California and the rest of the world boosted by the digital age and social media.

How check and trim your kite bar and lines

SurfingtodayKite - 16. Апрель 2019 - 14:33

Have you ever felt that your old kite is not behaving as it used to? Maybe your kite bar and lines need an adjustment.

So, nothing like a smart kite hack to bring the old feel back to your favorite wing.

Machine repairs underway at Surf Lakes to create "full-sized wave faces"

Surfing - 9. Апрель 2019 - 13:56

Surf Lakes that they are rebuilding the wave generating machine installed in their testing site at Yeppoon, Queensland, in Australia.

After a soft launch that revealed a new wave pool concept based on a concentric wave formula, Surf Lakes is ready to step up their game.

"With external investigations and associated testing to the prototype now completed and the redesign efforts also finished, the re-build of the machine is now underway," notes Mal Borgeaud, CEO of Surf Lakes.

"Due to numerous external factors potentially affecting scheduling, i.e., weather, we are not in a position to communicate an exact date for when the machine will be online again."

According to the Australian wave pool company, the works are well on track for completion of repairs and phase two testing before June 30, 2019.

"We are taking our time with the redesign and rebuild to ensure we do everything possible to eliminate the risk of further delays," added Borgeaud.

"It has taken a bit longer, but we would rather spend the time now being more thorough, in the lead up to phase two testing."

Long Head-High Waves

Surf Lakes is expected to produce full-sized wave faces and length when they finally test the machine at maximum capacity.

Meanwhile, the firm's 5 Waves technology continues to receive inquiries from around the globe, now edging close to 300.

According to Aaron Trevis, the founder of Surf Lakes, inquiries have been from large development companies looking at creating larger residential and retail precincts, through to sole operators who wish to create stand-alone surf and action sports parks with an eye on the glamping market.

"The interest in Surf Lakes 5 Waves tech shows no signs of slowing down," states Trevis.

"As more people are exposed to artificial wave technology, be it us or any other technology in the market place, we are finding there is more demand due to non-surfing people being genuinely excited about the prospect of being able to try surfing."
