Watch: Filipe goes gardening
While waiting for the Quik Pro France to begin, Filipe Toledo, Mig Pupo, and Ian Gouveia visited Wavegarden's mini-tub near San Sebastian. It's a 1:5 scale model of Wavegarden's commercial tubs. We're assuming the '1:5' refers to the pool size not wave size, otherwise woah!
From the accompanying blurb:
The Wavegarden Cove offers approximately 30 different types of waves for beginners, intermediates and experienced surfers that can be modified with a touch of a button. However, in recent months our fluid dynamics department has focused on improving the main reef waves by altering the bathymetry. The pros feedback has always been instrumental in guiding the evolution of the menu of waves available and the engineering team was eager to see how the surfers performed.
