If you find yourself within a mile of the Huntington Beach Pier in the next week you’ll bear witness to hundreds of thousands of scantily clad youth at surfing’s spectacle of the year. Festivities carry on throughout the day, but it’s after the last autographs have been signed that the real trouble begins. For some, this is easy to avoid. Fine southern gentlemen, like the Hobgoods, have gained an advantage in many early-morning heats here, fresh off eight perfect hours of sleep.

Webber Wave Pools has recently introduced a new wave pool design to the world of surf parks and artificial wave technology. Their latest design is a crescent shaped wave pool that is capable of producing world class waves at a fraction of the cost of the full size circular wave pools.
The quality of the waves will be the same as any of the other Webber Wave Pool designs and will provide surfers with rides lasting up to 30 seconds. This length of ride is comparable to the maximum ride length of Wavegarden’s pool designs.

The Sth East Queensland coastline is dotted with an array of surfing breaks.
