A Surf Park High In the Pyrenees - Could be fun, kinda short though.

95

High in a misty valley in the Basque Pyrenees, miles from the ocean and surrounded by verdant sheep pastures, lies a prime surf spot. Its swells break with no wind or reef, and you can turn them on and off whenever you want. While a surf spot might form over hundreds of thousands of years, a team of Spanish engineers took the Wavegarden from concept to reality in just ten...

There's a lot about this that doesn't look fun at all...
1. The wave looks small & pretty weak. If you've ever wakesurfed, it looks like that... a 2' wave w/much less energy than a natural ocean wave
2. Seems to me, if you're going to go to the trouble of building a functioning wave pool, and you're going to spend 10 years of your life doing it, you should at least spend the extra money to throw in a water heater so people don't have to wear wetsuits.

That does look fun. It is super clean looking. Bring them on I say. They are not going to turn off the ocean or anything.

Beats a flat or blown out day at the ocean. Nothing wrong with this picture, take the kids to the country, have a picnic, share some vino tinto with some Basque separatists, catch a couple of fun ones, could think of a worse way to spend the day...

@ sticker you said"There's a lot about this that doesn't look fun at all.... The wave looks small & pretty weak. If you've ever wakesurfed, it looks like that... a 2' wave w/much less energy than a natural ocean wave".

To me it sounds like you just described a typical day at k##K#a#(this is for you location turtle).Atleast i am not seeing any collisions in this picture, that makes it much more attractive then certain ocean coves at times.
