(Above)1986 'Blue Thunder Wave was too high'n'heavy & as all...geared down on opening.
WEM Wavepool is unusual as it takes on Oar craft / Board / Tube / Bodysurfer
(Portobello UK pioneered all craft Wave Pools & also geared down a heavier rip wave)
1986 Old School (Triple 5) Wave Pool can fire up heavier than 2020 (Triple 5) AMW wavepool!
tbb exclusive swellnet revelation...Don't judge a washed up wavepool by it's Insta Mall Selfie!
See: (Above Photo) The waves were so large they breached XXXL perimeter wall (That big!)
