Legendary Australian shaper Greg Webber has shifted his focus to wave pools ever since he began surfing the wake made by a friend’s fishing trawler as he blasted by a shallow sandbank in the Clarence River in 2008. Legal battles and several re-designs later and he seems to be getting close to building his first surfable wave pool. The technology promises something similar to Kelly Slater and Wavegarden lagoons, except his design has hydrofoil-generated waves circling the central pier continuously. According to Greg, his hydrofoil design is superior because it creates a trough in the wave, which is how natural waves break. A Queensland project was mentioned in the media in 2014 but no news of late.
