Watch: First Vision From Kelly Slater's Abu Dhabi Wave Pool
Back in December 2015, we ran the First vision from Kelly Slater's Wave Pool in Lemoore.
The wave pool industry has come forward quite a ways since then.
But it's only today - almost eight years later - that Kelly's second pool has seen the light of day.
And so, here's the first vision from Kelly Slater's Abu Dhabi Wave Pool.
A different backdrop, tweaked wave, improved water colour; just some of the initial observations watching this clip. Of course, there'll be much more to come over the coming months as Hudayriyat Island opens to the general public.
Kelly reckons "I’ve surfed hundreds of incredible waves across the world and this wave in Abu Dhabi stacks up well against some of the best waves on earth."
Of course, he'd say that. But... I wouldn't mind a crack meself.
