Pro Surfers Try Out Australia’s First Wavepool

Pro surfers Mark Occhillupo, Joel Parkinson, Mitch Crews, Laura Enever, and scores of other surf pros and bros traveled to inland Queensland to test out Australia’s first wavepool.

Resembling a giant electric plunger, the 5 Waves prototype facility produced multiple waves simultaneously around the lake.  While the surf was terribly small, the stoke was huge — as you will see in the above video.

YEW science!
