Watch: Stopping Over At Surf Abu Dhabi
With a scheduled layover in Abu Dhabi, Dylan Graves casts for a nibble and receives an oversized bite. Lands himself on Hudayriyat Island to watch Slater's first wave at his second pool, even gets a few runs of the tub himself.
In this clip it's easy to see the wave is slightly larger than Lemoore and arguably hollower, though of equal interest are the pulled back shots that show the whitewater quickly reforming into deep water. What follows is another marked difference from Lemoore: The whitewater backs off then reforms on the inside in a beginners wave, increasing the overall wave count and making it more accesible to outright learners.
This is, no doubt, a result of the 'W' reef shape seen in the aerial view of the pool [Editor's Note: Did you already explain this TBB? Can't recall...]
