    How long before someone qualifies for tour with a man made wave as their “local” spot?

    This is so stupid.

    You know what, I hope they build a million of these things. The joe-pros, surfing for a high score, doing skate park moves on waves, can have every manufactured wave they make.

    In a few years we'll be alone in the lineup, the kids looking at us like we are crazy to wait out all morning there for a mis-shapen wave that may or may not come. They'll wonder why we pour over weather charts and maps just to score a couple good ones. "Dude, you can just drive up to Raleigh and surf the wave park. It's always perfect there" is what they'll say.

    I'll be out there with the pelicans.

    I bet that contest is boring and repetitive as ****

    For the low price of $9,500.00 you can watch people surf for a weekend and then get to take a dip in the pool yourself. Flipping 10 grand to watch a contest and then surf the same wave for a day...good god. And the kicker is that shit is already sold out...

    but you get "the full vip treatment" with your $9,500 ticket, plus the $288 "fee"

    Only homosexuals would watch that. I did not watch a second; did not even click on it.
    I like girls, not men.

    I watched enough of it but not the whole video. I think that pool would make very average surfers look like much better surfers than they really are. On the flip side, in a strange way, I think the shape of that wave will make some of the best surfers in the world look kind of average. Unless that machine has a whole nother top secret gear that has never been seen by the public that they can crank it up to the contest will be a total snooz-fest.

    Just watch Griffin in that video. He is an incredibly explosive surfer with every trick in the book but that wave really doesn't let him show what he's capable on a real wave. I've been in the lineup with Griffin at Trestles and he looks way way better surfing Trestles even on a mediocre day than he does riding the mechanical wave in that video. The mechanical wave has no sections to boost off of.....only a lip line to play with, cutback sections and the tube sections.
