American Wave Machines Completes New York Installation

June 19, 2013 No Comments

American Wave Machines (AWM), a leader in out-of-ocean surf, recently completed an installation of a PerfectSwell® wave generating machine in East Durham, N.Y.

Adding to the PerfectSwell® suite of innovations, including the patented reflecting wave generator, the new software-based invention creates surf by sequenced control of multiple wave generating chambers. Virtually any wave shape and direction can be generated continuously including point breaks, peaks, beach breaks, barrels and multiple rider waves. The recently patented invention is applicable to all pneumatic systems including linear and circular wave pools.

Additional patent pending innovations include a mobile wave control application designed to run on mobile devices. The mobile app will enable operators, coaches and surfers to call and control waves and personalized playlists. A media option allows photo and video capture of the surf session within the app.

“We’re stoked our customers have bigger and better waves in their pool than they thought possible. The capabilities of this system exceeded our predictions,” said Bruce McFarland, founder and president of AWM. “Not only does this demonstrate the scalability of PerfectSwell®, it demonstrates wave quality and quantity necessary for successful surf parks.”

The PerfectSwell® systems currently under construction are focused on surfing and standard wave pool recreation and are engineered for waves up to 8 feet. Still larger wave systems are within the technical capability.
