WATCH: Pro Surfer Kelly Slater Rides His Perfect Manmade Wave
Surf’s up…whenever you want it.
If the only surfing you’ve done is on the interwebs and you’d like to learn how to ride the real thing, a FlowRider machine—found on cruise ships and at destination resorts around the world—can help.
But seasoned pro and 11-time World Surf League Champion Kelly Slater wasn’t just looking to flail around in a kiddie pool. He wanted to ride The Perfect Wave…forever. So he worked with a team using “rigorous science and technology” for a decade to create an artificial wave in a pool. And just a few days ago to his 1.4 million followers on Instagram, he shared the results.
This four-minute video says it all (be sure to check out the bizarre scene 2 mins, 47 secs in of a guy standing still in the foreground as Slater continuously surfs right in front of him):
