With the best of summer yet to come, surfers must be anxious to hit the waves. For Wavegarden’s CEO José Manuel Odriozola, the perfect wave is an engineering art – one that has been perfected with Wavegarden 2.0. The artificial waves are produced by a hydrofoil that creates the familiar peaks and crests, which can hit a frequency of 120 per hour for continual enjoyment. Completely reliant on electric power, the system is a reliable alternative for those who might otherwise find beaches inaccessible. There is a fee to use the facilities, which are cropping up across Europe and even the Middle East, but who can really put a price on summer fun?
