Watch: First Vision From Kelly Slater's Abu Dhabi Wave Pool

Swellnet Dispatch

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.

A one hour session would most likely be deeply unsatisfactory. If it was a group of 10 people you would get a max of 2 waves and most likely just 1. You are either going to to fall on the first one or surf so carefully you might as well stand on a log at Noosa and claim that as a 500m “wave”. The reason this model has not been picked anywhere is its hugely in efficient as a business - other than a private novelty play thing for big $$. Plenty of that cash in the middle easy and no doubt a play for WSL comp.

Ps others reporting pool shape may produce secondary waves - prob just foamy reforms for beginners

In the water parks over there the women are in ninja rashies with a hood. Also when I was in Bahrain I saw women getting around in Hannibal Lector style face mask instead of a mesh veil or even the progressive Dubai Muslim where they can show their face(!).

That whole region sucks balls. Abu Dhabi sucks balls. The UAE is the most soulless place I've ever been to and Islam is the worst religion for women I've witnessed in my travels. It makes any other religion seem like a feminists wet dream.

I'm guessing you mean they couldn't afford to make a bigger wave? You'd think with all the brainiacs involved they could figure this out right?
That said if you can make a wave 3-4' then you could make one 6'+ using the same tech, it looks like wave pools max out at 3-4' max, to add why could they split the peak Right/ Left at some point that be interesting me thinks....

The other side of the argument is that the current wave height may actually be the most commercially viable.

URBNSURF initially thought that the 'Expert' sessions - the one with the "biggest, thickest and heaviest barrelling waves" - would be the most popular. It certainly seemed to be the most frequent point of discussion after the pool went public.

But, if you check the URBNSURF calendar, it's not currently available AT ALL on any week day, and they are offering only 2x one-hour sessions on Saturday and 2x one-hour sessions on Sunday.

"Why aren’t the waves in wave pools bigger?

We got in touch with Wavegarden head honcho Josema Odriozola to find out what’s limiting the size of these waves. Josema was keen to point out that the Wavegarden technology is readily scalable and capable of making bigger waves, but this would come at a cost.

“Raising the height of a wave by 0.6 meters increases the power required by two,” said Josema. “This is independent of the technology: anybody who knows how to calculate the power of a wave will be able to verify this — it is the law of nature. As the cost of the machinery is proportional to the required power, the cost of the wave machinery would therefore also potentially double, regardless of the technology.”

Along with the added energy consumption, there is the issue of all that water moving around in a confined space.

“Larger waves also require more water in the surf lagoon, and this could be as high as three times more water to gain half a meter in wave height.”

freeride76's picture

freeride76 Wednesday, 8 Nov 2023 at 8:17pm

Yep, the physics of creating waves are not linear equations.

So there's that, then customer preference as Ben outlined.

But I really thought they may have been able to produce a bigger wave than this with UAE petrostate money.

udo Wednesday, 8 Nov 2023 at 8:21pm

When the wave size doubles the power needed to make that wave goes up by 11 and a bit. That's if you are highly efficient. Because when you double the height of these wake waves, you double height, you double the width and you double the crest length. That's a lot more water, and it's going faster as well. That's 2 times 2 times 2, which is 8, and then you multiply that figure by the square root of 2, which is 1.4 and a bit, which gives you 11 and a bit.

Thats from a Bloke thats been Promising a Wave Pool or 5 for a long time now...but has Yet to Build One

This could be the clincher. It's still a long wave, so unless the reps are higher it's not a model that can be replicated where oil sheiks or tech bros aren't abundant.

I wonder how Slats reconciles this in his brain? I've always been a fan, but I can't get my head around his conflicting interests. Got to say, his turns and the wave look super buttery...especially the foam climb and the slip down the face at around 0.26. Also +1 on Dubai being a shithole (jeugasiempre). On a stopover from Europe, the vulgar wealth displays left me feeling a non shopper, shadowing my wife in the Mega Malls - and even our motel was vomit inducing. Couldn't wait to leave.

Since we're likely to see ongoing WSL events in these pools, with an already altered system to normal contests, why don't they force a more progressive approach to the wave by judging multiple criteria on a predetermined repertoire?

Think of figure skating or diving for examples; you go out there with a set and known plan with a predefined difficulty. If your plan is to do 2 reos, then a slash into a barrel, and come out to a couple more reos, then the difficulty is low and your scoring potential is low ... regardless of how far you push the tail or slide the fins.

If you come out with an original, stylish, and difficult plan, then your potential for an excellent score becomes much higher. Driving in originality will remove the boredom and repetition from the contest. One wave might see a 360 floater tail drop into a barrel and the next a switch-foot barrel, or we may see the resurgence of barrel-rolls.

The wave being relatively identical every time should allow the surfers to work out a specific routine.

tbb loaded a lot of Vids (Above) from same island...see wotz in common!
Note every patron is wearing a Helmet at every venue where Height exceeds 2.4m ...(All)
Soon as someone rates this wave 2.4m then all patrons will need to wear Swim helmets.

Kelly often talks his 2.4m waves down to 2.1m (vs) Wave garden talks their 1.4m up to 2.1m
None wanna "Declare" 2.4m officially to Authorities!
Coz then ya gotta mandate helmets...(Just like every other Island gig)
Ordinarily it's cool but not cool in a pool > Patrons wanna relax in a pool.
But they can't if some Hero wants to raise the bar...Just one WOTD Helmet > All gotta wear Helmets!

Sure...can have yer 2.4m WOTD but no one on earth would insure it without helmets...
Urbnsurf mandate Leggies & ban Bodysurfing but would never mandate Helmets...No Way!
Yuck! That's so gross the Whole Pool Party would flee in horror faster than spottin' a #2.

So who on Earth is that hooked on size that they'd forgo everyone's freedom? None as it turns out!
Will likely stay that way in our lifetime & more bans not less are creeping into the Pool & Everywhere!

Bodybasherz could surf every Wave & Wave pool on Earth...not now...get yer arse kicked
Now Kelly / Perfect Swell / Wave Garden banned us > Ban extends to pre 2000 pools...Good one hey!
If ya think ya hit the High Water Mark with Wave pools then yer most likely right...

1930's Golden Age of travel offered most efficient East Coast multi choice transit options.
1930's Goldie timetable is still the fastest city bus run of 35mins > Steam was faster than Tram
100's of Air / Ferry / Tram / Rail networks of 10,000's kms all gone! Now can't link any 2 Air/ports
Feds promise 80% > Then argue 50% > now get Nothin' > States slow all speeds to clock higher fines
Council 100 red light tickets for remaining Goldie length crawl option with [P] fines without signs.

tbb was recently fined $300 for doing 67km/hr on a former 100km #1 Interstate 60km/hr.
Nothing for 3kms...just a speed cam!...Just like that folks! Keep on boxin' ya in...take it from a hodad!
Try saving yer own life racing to hospital emergency none else around but Speed Cam...$400...C'mon!
All park at Gigs with covered [P] meters...End of gig > GCCC remove Covers & mail yer fine...Wot?

Crew know where & how this ends...
Just sayin' do ya really want big wave pools with mandatory Helmet Cams for yer $200 fine.
Like...$49.99 for yer Blue Lagoon Boost Juice + $200 fer yer Freeride x 10 rides...FFS...are you serious!
How else & who else pays for the empty Wave Pool...that's how we roll in Oz ...just read yer T&C mate!
Just ask any visitor to Oz...I'm not payin' Why do you Aussies put up with this shit...we go quiet, we do!

Addendum to Big Wave Pool Laws...
Robo cam registering repeat multiple "Helmet breach fines" without warning.
Crew may have thought tbb was having a laugh...not so, tbb was referring to recent news!

This News equally affects all that surf longer sessions & [P] near town / Beaches Wave Pools
Definitely worth sharing coz it might save yer $1,000 or more...huh!

Councils are asking State Govt to ditch [P] tickets in order to record multiple ongoing breaches.
They say it's all about safety...
Ongoing multiple fines are auto billed via email or mail.
So each 10 / 20 / 30 mins >1hr-3hr breaches are fined continually on allotted times until driver moves.
If surfer parks in 1hr zone & surfs 3.5 hrs expect 3 [P] fines on yer Phone!
Govt were even advocating loss of points after 3 strikes...
Very expensive it...that's wotz goin' down in SEQ right now!

Above tbb described auto billing helmet cam penalties for each repeated breach during a session.
Well Urbrnsurf already auto bill for damaged hire gear without recourse...
If Council succeed in repeat Auto billing > Repeat Wave Pool breaches will automatically follow!

Just saying if ya think this hodad is messin' with ya...think again...sorry to say this is almost LAW!
Govt argued more so for 'high risk' breaches...that flows over to Risk Helmet breaches.
You guessed not just multiple Helmet breach fines but also loss of Drivers Licence points.
Again...that's on State Govt SEQ Council agenda right now...thought to share that!

Amazing insight as usual udo...
Find it odd that Urbnsurf has trialled both Sand in their Pool & copped a massive Dust Storm
24/25/26 Jan 2020 Urbnsurf Duststorm Shutdown / Clean up

Recall Urbnsurf also trialled beach sand for a few days-week thru their filtration.
Andy reckons it was of no bother & just a bit of fun.

Hudayriat Desal / Wave Pool main function is to filter drinking water for 90,000 people.
Water quality on show here is far cleaner than any wave lagoon of similar scale.
Still unsure of what multi role the Pool Plays in the desal set up...but like udo.
Feel as if there may be some very fine chalk like salt silting along bottom...
Kinda like many Oz won't taste it until the pool guy tells ya it's a slight mix!

Dust storm may be a bother but the clean up should be quicker & better here than lesser able pools.

These Elevated Tracks have blow thru & are less affected by sand / dust than ground level tracks
Some asked why Dubai Metro was not underground but instead elevated...for this very same reason.
As udo implies > Wave Machine itself wouldn't hurt to have a Metro Trains are full bodied.

However...Machinery does work to clear large sand volume off tracks during dust storms.
(Chinese sandstorm > 127 crew /fork-Bucket /5 cars/3 rail cars > 7hrs to clear 4,000 c'm off 8kms of tracks )
Train was good to go with lesser moderate dust storm about...more about the smothered track.

tbb is only sharing Hudayriat Plans / Timeline of being self sufficient & running on desal.

Like Stu...tbb can only guess as to what the overbuild is on Wave Pool site.
Already owned up for knowing little about Desal other than shared by Hudayriat Island Directive

Just guessing if water is being prioritized for Kelly's pool then it's likely derived from a Desal Plant.

Sept 2022 is the earliest mention of Modon in relation to disguising the Island's Desal Plant
June 2023 Ongoing Contracts were locked in which confirm Modon as ongoing priority Desal partner.

All we know is Kelly's pool of all things on Hudayriat Island should be up & running on Desal?
Secondly is that both Desal & Kelly invest mostly in Solar & have obligation for this Island as such.

Find it hard to believe that WR wavepool is exempt & running on Town Water...that makes no sense.
Therefore tbb is basing his thoughts on this pool being stage one of Modon's Island desal project.

Either way the build timeline is incredibly swift...
Sept 2022 Desal EOI ...let's just lock that in for any Island investment kicker by modon or other.
Nov / Dec 2022 World Cup finishes & a stadium of Slaves could be directed to the Holy Grail Oasis.
Crew would guess no salt licking labour shortage...#1 Issue but no one wishes to lose their head.
June 2023 : Stu fished out Google Pool at same time Modon declared Desal partnership as solid.
Nov 2023 : Kelly surfs the Pool
Nov 2022 > Nov 2023 To build world's biggest wave pool (That sounds bizarre but all tbb has got!)

Unless the crew or other can unlock an earlier equal or grander Modon venture or start time...
We got earliest Desal - Wavepool Timeline as...
2022 September kicker > Nov 2022 Slave Labour > June 2023 peek-a-boo > Nov - Dec 2023 Opening.
If that sounds too fast then obviously Kelly knew of earlier handout to the 40% Modon Desal Kicker.
That naturally means this Giant pool is sucking juice from the mainland...against #1 Island directive!

We know WMG Hudayriat Island kickers never locked in until March 2023...
There is sound reason to believe Surfing may join (Olympic Badged) WMG Skateboarding / SLS

Just saying if crew can unlock any early 2022 Hudayriat Pool party click bait...
Coz that makes more sense...just that tbb can't imagine any more vital to Wavepool other than Desal.

Thereby guessing the pool is the primary kicker or component of "Priority Island Desal Project"
Pool itself is to open by Xmas...
Again that possibly locks in the Wave Pool as a stand alone component with plant to build around it!
We see a massive overbuild surrounding it...mountains more than Kelly's Tractor & Trailer Trash.

tbb has no way of telling if Pool is running on Town Water (Only that would oppose Island directive!)
Thereby narrowing down options of it being Desalinated water from an ongoing surrounding Plant.
This plant may yet have more & larger Solar Array & Chimney Stacks as others to fill in around it.
Please don't assume tbb has any answers that one can lock in...only sharing wot news comes to hand.

tbb never saw Kelly's White Shoe shuffle as he digs his Golden Spade into gold dust...luv to see that.
Coz all know that's wotz missing here...The Golden Handshake & Pay Dirt ceremony! Where is that?
Was that earlier than Sept 2022 coz if so, why so & wot Grand Poobah secret handshake was that?
C'mon folks...where is Kelly hiding his Golden Spade...why can't we see this monumental exhibit.
Always ever for all Wave Pools & other dodgy deals worldwide...we have the turning of soil...where?

Thanks Sprout...think that best explains the Concept of the Big W Bank in the centre of the Pool.
First Up notice how all inner facing banks are deeper than outer facing shallower banks.
That may prove more significant with less water in the it may wash over the outer banks.
Meaning more attention to lowering speed to hold swell on shallow outer banks.
Wot you may or not read here is strictly based on Kelly's Reef Formula applied to the Big W.
tbb is adding nothing other than what Kelly said & designed in this pool...all will soon pick up on that!
Will be tricky at first coz it's new, but it should reveal more as it goes along!
tbb has allowed for Kelly's Dual Speed formula upon each of his inner / outer L/R reef breaks.

Main Bank @ Full Speed = Big long L or R > 300m Pro Ride
Reform to inside central banks...60m [L] wash + L/R 40m (Beginners) 40m R\L + 60m [L] Wash
Note : Same Beginner Banks fire up on both 'Full & Lower speed' (see below) to intro more patrons

Then repeat opposite Main break > 4 inner banks


One could return at same speed / Pro + Beginner [L] surfers.
Return Slower speed for change to (Back up crew) of Intermediate > Cruisers > Beginners.

In other words give max flexibility for many Mates of differing Surfing levels to share a it!
This changing of speed allows for Ultimate Return Mix of maximum banks of flip depth & direction
Then also alternatively flip speed from each end to give a natural D'bah shifting freak peaks set up.

Easy to skip over this bit but please don' this may represent the guts of the matrix...
Recall many crew questioning the down time...well this dual speed option may just get around that...
Having a 2 speed option may prove handy but only if all these banks line up...that's a massive if!
Coz if any of these banks misbehave then it only fouls the the whole gig for longer...Huge gamble it is!
Mostly coz this is some else's pool on the other side of the longer skirt lifting about the backyard.

Slower Speed = Inside Shallow Reefs...
Can see how the slower Speed lines up 3 L/R Banks

1st Bank = Semi Pro / Intermediate (Large-Mid size shallow barrels) 100m L/R (Possibly Either / Both)
One needs to examine if this pool is only part filled > Current inside bank only > More water L/R banks
2nd Bank = Intermediate / Cruisers (Mid sized Fullest wave > shallow small wave) 60m L/R
3rd Bank = Beginners (Small size Full > shallow smaller wave) 40m L/R
Shares from above Full speed mode as dual beginner banks for all sessions to suit majority of patrons.
Basically the Beginner bank is on tap for any return Blowin that rocks up...very clever & essential.
Mostly as this large market know what they want...nothing too heavy or easy...Just right please!

Then repeat opposite 3 L/R banks at either speed to keep or slot exchange with faster Pro / [L] crew


Thanks again Sprout...we can't be sure until other banks fire up...but one can see Kelly's Natural intent.
tbb stuck to his script & how those speeds hit that Big it should play out similar...
Up until you shared that Vid, tbb was only second guessing & did suppose a dual speed formula.
By cleverly logging Speed shift on 5 reefs into yer Vid menu it may have just lit up the Big W...score!
That's why yer link was important ...coz Kelly rarely shares any detail on bathymetry...even hides it!
So we can call that menu of yours a rare insightful scoop as many would gloss over that!
The Big W makes more sense even if it fails here & there...the foresight is there to pick it apart.
Basically if it all lights up...Kelly is Huey's nephew...if biggie as it's opening soon either way!

We can expect some banks to need tinkering or have better L/R in alt direction as one expects.
But doubt if Modon will be as fussy as Kelly unless there is a Warranty on core [L] Beginner Banks.
Recall the Kerfuffle over Intermediate Sessions @ The Wave Bristol...something of that nature!
These Honey Pot inner banks must perform as intended > more so than fusspot Main Break variations.

Big W...Code crackers
15th June : Stu outed the Abu Dhabi Pool.
15th June : Coaster - W Logo as in Webber Pool
19th June ~ swellnet crew had first crack at decoding the Big W Hydraglyph ...( Wonka Bars )
25th July ~ Gil Olsen obviously has great taste & picked up on the swellnet expose.
Gil Launched his Expedition in search of the mysterious swellnet Wonka Bars ...The Big W.

Wavepool God Bob was knighted by Thor Occy for his devout Bobbing up'n'down wave motion.
Kelly was a devoted follower of the Bob Downe Sect...As in Bobbing up & Down 5 waves X factor.
This blew his tiny mind...couldn't fathom how another surfer could share his pool...that's kinda cool.

So now Goat's Foily bobs up'n'down ~ Shellin' out Big W value for Kelly's Kooks! (Stop crying!)
Wave God Bob saved Kelly from the Darkside, soon fit a turnstyle for war ravaged recovery sessions!
Big W will restore Peace to the middle east...just you wait'n'see!

That be why we Qldurrz all hail our Wavepool God Bob...
Sure! We know he's not real as no crew has ever set eyes upon the Great one..

Only the Chosen ones may enter Thor Occy's Wave Kingdom.
As was the Case with Kelly's Wonka Wave Factory...

Soon...The Stolen Dingo Baby & other VIP Grom Knights will be summoned.
All recall the Qld Legend of the Dingo that hid the micro grom in the cave.
Thor's Micro grom got taken by a local Dingo & got buried ultra deep in a Surf Lakes Cavern & Vanished!

Of course they made an Epic Blue Ray Wavepool Flick about the Gromz Lucky Charm Tiki Idol.
Pretty sure that was the Brady Gromz ~ Yeah / Nah this was Surf Lakes re summon Thor!
Can see Dingo nudgin' the Grom into the Man Cave...gets so pitted > never comes out...still in there!

This is exactly the behavior you need to stop, but people just don't care. No matter how rich you are, you always want more, with more production, spend more energy, etc. we all try to help having a better sostenible place to live on, but for some people the money and fame Is more important. Their egoist dream is more important. I surfed all my life and was a fan of Kelly slater too, but those things have no sense in 2023. We need to be more serious.

They claim it's longer but timing footage, a full wave ridden at Surf Ranch comes in at 51-53 seconds.

Kelly's wave above has the front end slightly chopped off but comes in at 41 seconds.

Also looks almost identical for size and shape in a straight A-B comparison.

Maybe, a smidge bigger.

But certainly no major changes or evolution in this second iteration, unless they have improved wave frequency.

Thanx for yer expert super snoopin' udo.
tbb is holdin' out on foreign subscription so falling off the pop charts so to speak.
As trashy as they are...these Xmen insta postcards are all we huge thanx for sharing.
tbb will repay in kind by adding meaning to what we don't see staring back at us.

The essential directive is similar so crew will naturally see it that way.
However there are heaps of changes on every level that are yet to play out.

The saltwater supply fits the Independent Island directive...
Whether it stays that way or later switches to desal.

* Saltwater timetables an earlier project start date ahead of desal > explains fast progress.
* Past ranch set up can not switch from Fresh to Salt or back again > This model can quite easily.
* Kelly's new Sub Foil / Suspended Train tech is far better designed to instantly auto adapt.
* In theory Kelly can 'now' easily switch (re: udo ~ Saltwater) to Desal when it soon comes online!
* Whether the pool is part of a desal project or central to it or removed from it > It can switch anytime.

Persian Gulf Salinity 41g/kg is higher than WSL Tour 34g/kg
Meaning these Pros " Should be able to rip faster" on shorter lighter boards.
If ya think Kelly is looking a little too lively ...then yes...way faster than his Ranch Routine!
Also means there's no need for Brazzo's to cry over sharks or leg burn from sluggish freshie Comps.

Although Pool is much larger > Hodads can cruise for longer & beginners held aloft longer.
Heated ocean Temp also lends more lightness > Speed...Let it rip!
A hot rocket zero gravity Moonshot for sluggish heavy metal cold hearted freshwater crews...
In other words...but yer money on yer fav Arctic Sea Monkey for WSL Desert Derby.
Thor should fly outta the blocks like a speed demon...outta my way ... Exotic Blue Lagoon Pool Party.

Down side to Salt...The 'Posts' as Kelly says or Piers if ya like.
Original Ranch Poles look like Cold Gal > Later Aqua marine White undercoat paint job.
Note Abu Dhabi Posts are darker ...likely stainless Steel blend / Tar dipped...(Only guessing)
However this pool still requires all the same overbuild of tacky cross bracing & mesh.
All that side stuff must also be treated or newly designed for Salt water...that wouldn't come cheap.

(Train & Rails) first look the same...they're not!
Original Train pressed down heavily on Tyres to wear stuff down & out in no time!
Which weighed heavily on the tracks...a harder long haul on worn gear with every run.
These tracks are rusting out fast...when one freezes the frame the tracks are corroded.
One can see the mountains of oil Kelly throws at it to grease the wheels...
Can see annual corrosion > These are 2 year old photos > soon be monthly corrosion.
We can assume Kelly's original Track has 15 year 'workable' lifespan in fresh / mineral water

Kelly counters this with new improved Abu Dhabi design
* Train's Wheels now roll 'overhead' (Monorail Style) Takes weight off track + more flexi options.
* Sketches also showed Side Wheel grip like roller coasters...but tbb can't see that with Quick vids.
* Overhead Suspension > Takes weight off piers > more uniform > Run faster with less resistance.

(Hydrofoil Submarine) Star of the show that orchestrates the whole shebang.
Sure! Once again all see same ol' same' ol Bill the steam Shovel...not so.
After udo said this runs on saltwater tbb raced back to check the upgraded foil...& sure enough!

Abu Dhabi advanced 'foil' features

* New Foil has Ballast for Air / Water or whatever weight or substance ya choose.
* Effectively a Submarine cableway.
* This ballast combos the aforementioned Suspended Wheel hang to counter Evaporation/Salt/Fresh
* Auto Ballast feature is essential in fast evaporating Abu Dhabi Lagoon which may be the inspiration.
* Ballast can raise or lower & either slow or speed the foil
* Push deeper to slowly build larger but fewer waves or rise to slice faster for quicker smaller waves.
* Now see the reason for corresponding suspension wheel arms.

(Suds Cage )
* Original Plough towed it's own long arm span of water to struggle against it's own self...Puffed out!
* These new bubble cages roll like marbles behind the Blade head to push & Stoke up the shoulder.
* New foil now rolls itself along as it goes...rather than dragging more each metre on foil...Got it!
* Again... each of these features help the train / Foil > motor along with less resistance.
* Massive power saving innovation.

(Auto Rotating Axis / Pivot Point) > See The Big W.
So now we got all this flexibility to create or explore different Wave setups > New banks ( Big W)
This Auto central swing pivot is the Diamond in the rough
* New Foil can program to slightly pivot on it's own axis...but enough to change swell direction.
* Although it seems slight it's actually significant with varying / changing speed / ballast options.
* More importantly & bizarrely...this can be Auto changed while Foil is shaping the wave.
* Yes! Exactly...Kelly should be able to whip & stall these waves! Within relation to set Bathymetry.
* Yet to see Kelly toy with Freak Peaks & wot not...we can't rule that out...(Here's a Decent Example)
Recall the original Snowdonia Wavegarden foil put out a pretty decent Shoulder kick & ramp...
We can see a new strong Foil or Flexi-Foil are capable of more tricks & hide many surprises.
Abu Dhabi Foil is in no way Old School Wave Pool tech rather it's New Wave with more tricks to come .

(Big W) re: Above posts...
Crew can now see how Kelly 'can' replicate Surf Lakes God ~ Bob's X volcano (5 waves)
* Kelly can twiddle...Ballast > Wave Speed / Height + Pivot Set waves over which bank he commands.
Sure! Like Huey's bastard outcast son we never speak of...
Joins wavepool Godz ~ Brownie / Roary / Bob now Kelly all banished from Huey's kingdom.

Ai Surfing Sultan : "Better than that sloppy Weet Bix shit that Huey keeps Servin' Up!"

Huey : "That's not a Wavepool...This is a wavepool ...'Ahoy Goodvibes!"
Goodvibes :" 'Put on yer blockout cream...5/4/3/2/1 Kaboom! There's a big one out the back...

I mentioned on another thread KS and his team have an adjustable bathymetry patent.
What if the tube section circled in red can be lowered to allow more of the swell to travel to the "W'' area.

Therefore you would have three breaks, the first 15 seconds and the last 15 seconds of the wave we are currently seeing (40 sec ride), and the 'W' break between.

Spec you later!

Brilliant get again philosurphizing...feel free to again share more on the Big W.
tbb thought that was a conceptual maintenance module for the foil ballast as it looks identical.
But yer right ... now see these trapezeoids are prominent thru near all modules + bathymetry.

Yer absolutely right.. it's an add on Ballast - soft top Reef / Ramp / Damp / Race the Current.
As mentioned can grow coral reefs or Air Wave...all very general patent...but...

Secret being that they can be hurriedly & readily installed without pool drain-refill ( During a Comp?)
But also that it can withstand heaviest forces in the pool...that's amazing...
Like how to fit & remove at speed a module with organisms as a reef...that's tricky!
Kinda like a living interchangeable jigsaw reef bathymetry.

Noticing the flow thru nature of Trapezoids seems to act as a self gripping it that simple?
Kinda like each angle & hole is Ai generated to suck down on it's on weight but levered up to remove!
Thereby leaving no trace of it every being installed...if so...that's a shit hot patent!

Being honest...these gremlins look familiar...seen similar before not sure where!
Thinking maybe Traffic Works / Speed Humps but also Undersea ...very clever though!
Seems based on that odd ball recycled Tyre Merch era ...just anything of these will do!
Then ya just find a use for it...Have a cone...Hey! Like for a Wavepool...Perfect!
Even know that tbb has held similar device in palm of me hand...sure of it! Crew will know what!

Checked out the Similar Trapezium / Dome shape underwater Modules
Water Proof solar powered Cats Eye lights & Deck lights withstand 10 ton.
These can be suctioned onto the Pool Floor or Walls

Anti Skid / Non spill Pet Water Bowls are also experimenting with design.(Sounds odd!)
These grip well & would also be hard to budge with Waves...
So just that inverted inner lip column has real good interesting to work that in a pool.
Reckon if ya weighted bloody hard to budge...very clever simple design with zero parts
They saw the need to cutaway curved hand grips to give ya half a chance at moving it!
Most products are geared towards a more primary function with Water Locking as secondary.
As for size...array of affordable large wide Speed humps that could be weighted or suctioned on.
One could work a slightly weighted design to self Suction that Stays in place to lever off!
Kelly has plenty of contacts with tail pad suppliers to get some custom oversized Ramps
Thought it would be tricky but some designs look like they could hold their own weight under pressure.

Seems like Kelly's design is more weighted & affords dimension to suit prime water task.
Given that most designs are headin' toward this end could well be easy to self fit & remove!
It is interesting as it seems like these are new ventures built around others that should redesign ok.

Just guessing any manual change/over in bathymetry is doable in short time & without certification.
Typically from Groms > Pros Comp...seems doable...recall Urbnsurf Wave medley Comp interval.
So not out of the ordinary & has precedent for Expression Session.
But for wave on wave Olympic Competitor change...tbb examined in detail the Auto Bathymetry.

*Automated Wavepool bathymetry
FINA International Speed Limit of 50cm / minute for Olympic standard Wave Pool Reef Ramp.
Naturally geared to "All Clear" accident protection.
Yeah! tbb knows that sounds freaky...exactly why swellnet crew here & now explore the possibility.
Ok! Gonna involve more crew again to open this up a little...thanx for sharing valuable input.

re: Above *freeride76 (Thanx) Times the Test rides at 40-50 seconds
Max International Auto bathymetry speed nicely times out exactly with one Abu Dhabi ride...

No one's locking in Interchangeable Bathymetry just exploring the limits for Olympic Wave Pool.

* Wave Pool can legally change Alt Bathymetry / Foil / Ballast Wave Shape in the course of one ride.
* But can an Olympian Surf the Wave Pool whilst Bathymetry / Foil / Ballast is in change mode?
Yes! That's tricky...coz all are lickin' their lips to see that...but maybe it's taboo!
Ok! Isa would need an exemption from FINA to ramp the Waves mid Ride...(Correct!)
Very reason swellnet crew are puttin' in the hard yards for all Olympic Surf Fans!

* Can a Comp be run to advantage any Bathymetry Change...Coz that really opens up the Wave!

* We now know that Auto Bathymetry can adapt to suit "Technical Routine" (Dive / Ice Skate Format)
Thanx to epictard : (Above) New Wave allocation nominated by technical Skill of each surfer! Doable!
* This gives surfing more flex to format Olympic Wave Pool Glitter Diva Pairs Routines!
Of course...allow for Pool settling time + Towel Down + (Ad!)

Ok! This has been an interesting exercise to explore what's legal in Wavepool Ramping whist Surfing!
Of course it's all hypothetical but it does flush out ~ "Official FINA Rules on Ai ROBO Ramp & Ride!"

Sure...if we gotta do another #1 swellnet serial offender exclusive...then this is hard to beat.
Modon Plans were in place for a {Surf Lakes Stadium}
Meaning Modon were originally competing against WSL / KSWC
Modon had envisaged or conspired with Surf Lakes to run a LIV Tour

Original Wave Pool plans indicate GOAT got wind of Modon's rebel Tour Stadium
Goat basically head of Surf Lakes tour...or...was he cut into the deal.
This Wave Pool has little to nothing to do with WSL other than blocking a LIV tour.
Sure! After cutting Surf Lakes outta the deal they can run a random Tour Comp / No pressure!

2020 WSL & Kelly knew shit about this Qldurrz Modon Pool...
Earlier plans show Surf Lakes initiated this Abu Dhabi Wave Pool Stadium well ahead of GOAT.
GOAT simply stole yet another set of SEQ Wave Pool Plans...not again...FFS.

tbb reckons when Qldurrz booted kelly outta town...(Choose)
1. Surflakes scored the Covid Cocoon kicker to redevelop own site.
2. But can't lock in Govt or investors while WSL Sunny Mobster's Don keeps leaning on Anna.
3. Quid Pro Quo for Kelly to get outta Sunny for a surefire Sweetheart deal...just sign here!
4. Kelly thinks no one will ever invest in Surf Lakes or WSL tub so thinks it's too good to be true!
2019 (Qld initiative > Anna bank rolls first = Pay Comp in D'bah NSW ...(WSL are dead to me!)
June 2020 Qldurrz Covid Cocoon Wave Pool Handouts to Surflakes & Sunny Shovellers!
Aug 2020 WSL GOAT says stamp our Sunny Olympic Stadium then cancel the Quiky.
Anna : You don't talk to me like that & that was the end of any hope of a Qld equal Pay CT...never ever!
Sept 2020 Modon are promoting a their proposed Abu Dhabi Surf Lakes Stadium...
But Surf lakes took the money or were about to ... 100% committed to Qld redo!

So are pretending that ain't no coincidence? Huh!
2 of the Biggest Wave Pool Gods take SEQ Wave Pool War to middle of nowhere Hudayriat Island
Like normal everyday Wave Pool Gods don't usually surf each other's Wave Pools but they did!
So now ya know why X Became W...Why is that tbb?
Square Surf Lakes shapes as a wider Rectangle (vs) Long Ranch bulks out into a wider rectangle
Same >< Same...Wot? Another major coincidence at same point in time at exact same location
Skinny [><] = Squishy [ vv ] Watch Sunny Wave Pool survivor's Vid (Above)
Kelly : I'll bow down to Qldurr Wave Pool God Bob...luv his flying X ...I want one...where do I sign...[X]

100% same Site > Developer > Pool Shape > Multi Banks > Stadium! Yet another straight up Qld rip!
Kelly caught red handed rufflin' thru Qldurr'z Wave Pool God's drawers again...
Kelly : "I don't see any anything that slightly resembles Modon's far off far out Desert Island Wavepool.
Just another SEQ Wave Pool coincidence using the exact same plans again...that's all it is!
Like why is that so unusual if it keeps happening to only me...rather than everyone else on Earth!

Sept 2020 Modon Plans 23 Pages
Page 4 shows an X large Clover Leaf Pool in Lush Landscape (Possible Recreation Lake)

*Page 10 shows {Surf Lakes Stadium} Longish/Square Shape with iconic V Island Bank}
Oct 2020.................... (Modon go cold on Surf Lakes or any Wave Pool / Stadium or Aqua-cade.

Either Site is hangin' on some Abu Dhabi post Covid / WMG / Desal handouts or Surf Lakes walked!
Crew know this was mid way thru Qld Wave Pool Wars (6 warring factions > 3 Survived).

Also during Oct His Highness Covid Party strolls Island & order Modon to share some more Fun...

Nov 2020 Modon ticks off every detailed Leisure / Sports but no Wave Pool Funny Stuff...Sorry!
2021 Jan Glamping > Cycling > Beach > April Splash Pad > Events > Festivals (But no Wave Pool talk!)
There is a noticeable Evening Beachfront lifestyle...Could be that was getting insecure & Costly...
Plenty of unusual amounts of Night Vids for a desolate dust bowl Island...gotta be a clue!
Perhaps Modon thought to pool this into one Zone to better manage suss night Camping / swimming.

Only coz we do see a switch to pool youngsters or casual folk into shoreside Micro Grom wavepools.
Could be that the need to cool off in the bay became second nature with convenient beach access.
Kinda like, this was never gonna be patrolled safely! ( 24/7 Island that never sleeps...possibly!)
Share this Vid coz it best explains this bat shit crazy aimless shift from day to zombies!

2022 Masterplan reveals what looks like 2x open Gromz Saltwater fed Wave Pools?
Wave Pools present as two natural fed > polite drawcards with Micro Grom waves.
Recall this was still Covid hangover...not unusual as Qld were also often changing wavepool designs
No Surf Lakes or KSWC [2022 date stamp is tiny > centre bottom- blink & you'd miss it!]
Just sharing that during Start? 2022 KSWC Wave Pool was still nothin' at all...not a blip!

Sept 2022 Expressions of Interest for integrated Desal plant.

During wave Pool build time...tbb thinks to check WTI for hooking up Wave Pool
WTI do most big ticket Local & World Water Parks of similar Size...Salt / Fresh water (More Later!)

March 2023 WMG announcement for Island for 2026
June 2023 Stu's reveal of Wave Pool...forced company to issue press release.
Plans still dodge Wave Pool other than Google Maps.

Then we got here & now...
Crew can see it makes no sense to hyperleap from Gromz pools back Wave Stadium..
Even now we can lock in plans & Exact date for Surf Lakes stadium.
But still know of no plans or start date for Kelly's Wave Stadium on same Site! Yet here it is!

Note at the end of the Caroline Marks wave the camera teasingly pans back down the pool and for the first time reveals the turbulence/seiching, which is way less than the Lemoore pool.

The amount of evaporation in that climate must be off the charts. Probably replaced by desalinated water as well. Carbon emissions on top of carbon emissions. I'm sure Kelly's boardshorts will offset all that though...

2022 WSL Melbourne RipCurl Open QS 1,000 (Wave Garden)
2023 WSL Korea Open QS 1,000 (Wave Garden)
WSL are globalizing the Wavepool brands

Surf Abu Dhabi (Modon Website)
* No KSWC Logo Link > strictly via Text
* KSWC > WSL Logo (No Link > see tiny text link only...)
* There is no Partnered WSL Link nor any mention of Abu Dhabi on Ranch Site!

Crew's #1 Question : Is this a WSL / CT wavepool
See : udo's 18th Nov Surf Abu Dhabi Wavepool Vid...Above)

* Clever Backdrop of UAE Govt [Flags] Pimp & exploit UAE as hip Surfing Icon.
* Modon Coloured Flags line the Pool but [No] KSWC / WSL Flags or Stickers

[1:10] Dylan sends text wins Invite > takes Cab + will ride GOAT's Boards? (See below)
[1:29] Dylan shares his June Modon Press Release...[Pause]
* Abu Dhabi is "Specified" to Host 'Major International Surf Comps'
* High Performance destination will offer World Class Surfers the perfect conditions to train & compete!

Crew's # 2 Question : Which Comps
Check Catering > Competitors
*24 [3:54] * 12x Men + [4:40] 12x Chix
*24 / 2x 12 Hangers / Board Slots / Lockers
Major International Surf Comps (*Olympic Ideal is specified!)
Tokyo Men 20 + Woman 20
France Men *24 + Women *24 (Teahupoo Judge Tower fail > Goat universal invite > Abu Dhabi Pool)
All can see this is designed for *French Olympics / WMG Olympic Ideal Surf Venue Format
Coincidence that French Olympic Surf Coach is taste testing the Olympic Ideal Surf Comp Site!

KSWC Wavepools are WSL Certified.
WSL Pre Cut *(24 chix) > Post Cut *(24 Men) < > (12 Chix)
Time Off Mag : "WSL to Open Abu Dhabi Pool + Host 2024 WSL Finals"

[11:50] Dylan lets film run...Check out This Naughty Shit...Busted...
See Steph runs Top Shelf moonshine to the Boyz Lockers.
Crew here been wonderin' where the line is drawn...reckon Steph has her toes on the nose! Cheers!
Thinkin' WSL have a little more skin in the game if Modon let this slide > Grog Comps in this Pool!

How Big the Pool & How long is the ride...
Chinese wavepool 700m long Double Sided Pool...> NLand shorter (dual sided) 46,000 sqm
Thanx swellnet Nik...
42,000m Lemoore (One sided) > 34,000m SurfLakes > 33,000m Abu Dhabi (One Sided)

Abu Dhabi maybe the biggest longest barrel...perhaps?

Foil advances [4 Poles] to Wave Striking each Pillar [re: Graded Flags] Similar to Ranch!
[93 end]< [73 white] < [67*green]< [53yellow] < [41blue] < [27*red] < [21white] <[ 1start Right ]
(*L \ Goat's Take Off / R* ) +1 Pole for #1's +2 Other WSL Pros (+4 for Non WSL insured Surfers-Dylan)
Kelly's Only Pool Rule > Kelly sits Deepest > No One sits inside his Flags only him!
(End Ride) [93] R < #1 WSL Pros > L [1] (vs) [83]R < (Non insured -10) > L[10]
[Check longest rides] Kelly Flag Take Off > End Post Finish = (66 Posts) Kelly's Longest rides!
Crew's longest rides currently allowable would be (52 Posts) Jetski bumped if ya try longer...Ouch!

Note how GOAT fires off wild high speed WSL ski jumps...but comes down hard on outsider Dylan.
This smells of Pro Surfers Bullet Proof Insurance (vs) Mitigate outsiders like Wild Card Dylan!
Recall Ranch Bouncers drilled hole in Keen's Skim Board then Hogtied him...ONE OF US! (Freaks are us!)
(Next Level Jockz) Don't even register they're fuckin' rude bastards...He's not A List...just downgrade him!
People fuckin' notice ya arseholes...apologize to Dylan & give him a Top Shelf redo with Kelly's Locker.

(re : Uninsured > Don't ride own boards > Please note : Ride GOAT's Slowest Rocker)...[Fuck Off!]
Armed Jet Ski Bouncer GOAT Mandates the [+4] kook seat for VIP Party Guest Dylan!
Note Dylan Sits down line from red flag > Then still gotta Paddle = 4+Posts (Does well to reach end...)
Watch manic Jetski GOAT > Hawk Dylan then swoops to cut [-10 posts] from Dylan's ride...Pure Evil Jocks!

Dylan is not covered by World Pro Surfers International Travel Comp insurance
[7:00] Goat goads his fucktard WSL Jock's Jetski Jumps but cuts Dylan's ride short prior to Handover.

This indicates Abu Dhabi might well be insured by WPS / WSL for Comp Status!
Coz that's a pretty rude setback + fuckin' wild snakin' from the bump Dylan > Twice on 2 rides.

Mid way ~ All Surfers draw level with Strike Post
Back end > Surfer draws ahead to finish Ahead of Strike Post

* Wave keeps Whipping towards End & would toss a kook surfer onto Ken's beach.
* Translation : This is as big as ya get...any bigger & you'll get flung outta the Pool...
[11.10] Watch as Dylan goes the big finish > see how wave keeps stoking near shore...
* See how Jetski cuts'n'bumps his line > now see Pile of Tyres for emergency Jetski Bumper
* [11:46] Kelly get's cheered to surf & bail at last Tower...not for outsider Dylan...No Chance...
* Lemoore Ranch fades out for learners and drifters...not here...keeps running...
Abu Dhabi drifts on faster like Surf Lakes Swash or that snappy Shizunami Sushi...mind the Gap

All can see Goat is worried about that end of Pool surging Speed Ball...might dry-dock a rider.
After seeing how Dylan was Stalled with Rocker Board > Delayed Take Off > Early take Out

Wanna hear Something even more revealing from Dylan's lips...
11:10 : "Wave felt easier to surf, not sure if that was because of warm salt water, the bigger 'longer' wider tubes or just the fact yer doin' this all under the Arabian Sun!"
Definitely reads as the later in Dylan's Case...dreamt of the former but settled for the latter!

Dylan feels his delayed & shortened ride was an upgrade on The ranch...that in itself speaks volumes!
We could be lookin' at fastest longest ride on Tour?

Finishing with that...WTI ( Water tech )
Usually flood startup with Salt Water but continually filter the original fill.
Inotherwords they Desal > Recycle to provide Parks Water Needs very efficiently...
Meaning they recycle the Salt as filtering > becomes Fresh Water in slow the rides in this case...

However...during Summer they uptake more Saltwater to top up.
Also close in January > End of Feb Saltwater Refill similar to current briny mix!
Just saying if WTI are contracted they'll likely replicate their world best mass savings practice here...
Seasonally Fastest salty rides @ Abi Dhabi Wavepool would be Feb re-fill + Aug salty top ups.
June + Dec as most filtered near fresh water for yer slower rides.

New overhead rolling Train / Foil Ballast can now rise & fall to adapt (vs) Lemoore can't!

Most vidz to date typically censor / Edit Start & Finish of Rides as usual...(But this vid details more!)
Still took tbb some time but we gotta good look at it for above context & next reveal!
Cheers to Dylan for yer brazen tour of the Compound + udo for funnelling the contraband Vid.
This is by far the most revealing vid that any surfer & crew have shared for this Wavepool.
tbb can now share & reveal exactly where these New Tech Parts are & what role they

truebluebasher Monday, 20 Nov 2023 at 11:36am

Yeah did hear that & wot udo shared...thanx for memo...
tbb shared the Local Abu Dhabi waterparks also run on Salt...
As said but they gotta be self sufficient so fill it then lock it in & filter it over'n'over.
They then convert the water to suit Parks different Seasons > Levels of Salt / Chlorinated
World best practice! Quite involved process for Heating > Underground networks for Cooling

Vid + Diagrams show the Wave Train/Foil can rise / drop + Yaw
Figures 9-14

18 Nov (udo's Video-Above)
[3:40] See rolling Lead / Guide wheels adjust sideways to hub yaw angle of Foil...(In standard mode)
Each wheel individually hubs a set distance to firm up the changing angle of the Foil to shape up Big W.
Presuming Computer changes these Guide Wheel settings to yaw the Foil whilst in motion.

This may depend on FINA Comp Safety Rules in case change compromises Comp placing or rider's life.
Coz we're shifting Frontier Surfing to under the microscope Arena Format where cheating is on show!
tbb pointed out the Pro tiered Take Off slots in the Pool & Jet Ski Rollerball.(Can't hide this evil!)

Any machine action that advantages or hinders another competitor will be declared unsportsmanlike!

Note each Guide Wheels have 400mm individual vert arms as do Overhead Wheels...
Assuming these hydraulic arms also serve to raise or lower with ever-changing evaporation / fill levels.

Known as The Bob Complex (See again above / below)
As in Surf Lakes Wave God Bob...who expertly Bobs up'n'down with God like powers!

7th Nov Sprout Vid (Thanx) : 54:00 (Kelly's Bob up'n'down X Flagellation)

[6:00] Cable - 4x Guide Arms/loop as seen from direct squared side zoom.

[6:15] Overhead Wheels 400mm Hydraulic Spring Arms
(Only seen from directly squared side zoom pause).
This enables the Wave Train to continually adjust foil depth thru evaporation + infill
As in the Bob Factor
Surf Lakes God Bob ... Bobs up'n'down at any pitch for yer desired X bank Slabs or Cruisers
This combo's Surf God Foil's ballast to stoke up yer sweet Spot for Spot X...
Like a Santa wish...just say when / where & how much is too much or Can I have some more Please!
Bob's Abu Dhabi cousin bobs up'n'down to stoke the GOAT's Big W (Legendary Mall Wave Fountain)
So far only exists as scrimshored hyrdraglyphs on Soggy Bog Rolls.

Both Gods ...Bob & Foily can bob up'n'down with varying Ai ROBO speed & weight
Believers swear Foily can alter his Bob angle mid wave to shape up WOTD as his pet GOAT surfs.

Bathymetry can also be Automatically shaped & timed thru length of one ride (Max Speed limit) Above!
FINA don't allow sporting / comp action during Bathymetry change motion...(See above post)

Future Bathymetry will afford Surfer's farting song to generate gastronomical wave fountain routines.
This is my re-imagined cover version from 2093 Pipe Masters GOAT III [10] (Difficulty Level > XXX Rad)

So yeah...crew can see & dream up all this'n'more on Dylan's VIP Wavepool Party Flick.

Bonus Sleeper
[5:45] Hear & see the wall of water at the crew's feet as all watched Kelly.
Wave head is at Green Flag [#67] as tail end sweeps HQ.
Deafening flooding wave power would wipeout [L] surfer session & send them to hospital.
So! Ain't no [L] gonna share the Pool with Pro Session...can rule that out!

See VIP crowd flee $Gazillion HQ to overcrowd & block Scorching Hot Path thru-fare (High Risk)
Watch where Modon's Security attention is focused > On WOTD breaching the Crowded Footpath...
tbb reckons WOTD breached the Path the crowd was on...& would do so each Comp (Out of Bounds)
Not even pipeline trails a wave 150m up the beach to capsize WSL Flagship.

Aint no way Modon Security gonna let a crowd on this path during WSL / Olympics!
[Factcheck] VIP Crowd raced outta the Air/con into a Day-Night heavily impacted swiftwater zone.
Reminds crew of Crowds flocking & sacrificing selves on river bank Bore Waves...nuthin' ever changes!
That shared Scorching hot / flooded path is considered #1 VIP Seat for WSL / Olympic Comp Action...

So why did the VIPs flee their Corp Boxes to dip toes & get rag-dolled by WOTD Tsunamai.
[5:45] See spec of a Goat drifting far off in distant Galaxy now light-years afar from Ranch Pro Action.

Grand Prix Stand is 10m from 370km/hr finish line
Olympic Aquatic Stands are 10-50m from WR Gold Medal
Melbourne Cup is just 90m from stopping the Nation.

1936 (7,300) Wave Pool Stadium fans were 10m from $120 Extreme Aquatic Games
500,000 spectators watched 290,000 surf Portobello Wave Pool in opening Year.
2022 Proposed Hudayriyat Surf Lakes 3-5,000 Stadium/Arena @ 50m from Gold Medal Surfing

Here & Now Surf Abu Dhabi HQ ...
2024 ~10 Wave pool fans flee $Gazillion flooded path 360m from GOATs Gold Speck Claim
Safe to say Today's Wavepool Experts have set surfing back 1,200 years to the pre Basalt Board era.

Wonderin' how much these Irukandji Incubators get paid...perfect career option for us Mental crew!
Could work 24/7 for free & still manage to bankrupt the Nation...droolin' over this Dream Job.
