Stu have you heard of this ( https://www.waveco.com.au/about ) before? MS has an article on it and its inventor Troy Bottegal who plans to trial it in November at Bunbury WA.
I'm dreaming that it can create waves like the photo MS added into the interview, but I'll have to wait till Nov.

I'm late on picking up on that this is already a discussion as TBB has enlightened me to it today. Still interesting though and Nov is not far off.

I rode a novetly wave that was marginal at best on the weekend, and it was 2x as long as that thing!

Only value was that I had it to myself, sitting at the bottom of a big cliff with just me and the reef.

Sure, was fun on my fishy twin, sucky shallow take off that goes fat quick for a few cutties, or if a wide grower better turns that ran into this inside of the bay. Fun when everywhere else was poor and because I had it to myself and could pick the best ones.

Looks like a good time.

factotum blew out his social credit when hijacking the "Helloworld Medivac"
So the crew are escaping in that pod...How much for a window seat?

ABC local radio asked for potential names for the new 'spot' (in the spirit of other spots like The Womb and The Box they mentioned).

Some responses:

"It's Bunbury aka Bunghole...so The Butt Plug?"

"Goonies"

"Funbags"

"The 8 ball"

"Hep B...for Bunbury"

"The Colostomy Bag"

"Glassies"

"Bunbury (crack) Pipe"
