American Wave Machines, Inc. (AWM), the leader in artificial wave technology for surf parks, announces three technological breakthroughs for PerfectSwell™, an innovative approach to generating large waves with the emphasis on wave quality and surfing. PerfectSwell is the next generation of artificial wave pools with its patent pending PerfectSwell Wave App™, patented Reflecting Wave Generator and Phased Array Control System, providing the opportunity for surfing outside of the ocean. Production of PerfectSwell is underway in Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Olympics. The 35,000 square foot PerfectSwell wave pool will open at the Sheksna Resort, nominated as Russia’s Leading Spa Resort by World Travel Awards.
AWM’s PerfectSwell Wave App™ allows surfers to control the session by calling up their favorite waves from the lineup or from shore with their iPad or iPhone. Wave direction, size and intensity can be modified from an iPhone, allowing surfers to have the perfect session every time. Coaches and trainers can manipulate the surf for the skill level and physical location of trainees in the pool. Surfers can record the ride with a built-in media option.
No longer having to wait for the perfect wave, rigorous conditioning and training can take place in a PerfectSwell pool. AWM’s proprietary PerfectSwell Reflecting Wave Generator creates circular particle motion waves like the ocean, capable of producing 10 barreling waves per minute. The PerfectSwell Phased Array Control system controls chamber firing patterns and sequences creating any wave breaking characteristic from mushy to pitching to timed aerial closeouts.
“PerfectSwell is the most versatile system with the most innovative technology providing the best surfing experience, “ says Bruce McFarland, President of AWM. “PerfectSwell creates an infinite variety of waves. Point, reef and beach breaks can be replicated in PerfectSwell surf pools and waves can be adjusted and customized without need for special bottom contours.”
