Anyone who has ever been an avid surfer knows that the sport of surfing is the most crowded sport on earth. You wait sometimes for weeks for the surf to finally come up, then drive to one of the better surf spots, and find 40+ surfers out competing for waves. Sometimes you have to consider yourself lucky just to get 4 or 5 waves in a one hour session. For an intermediate-skilled surfer, the results can be worse.
Even if the surf happens to be uncrowded, you will spend most of your time just sitting, waiting for a set, paddling out, and getting caught inside. In fact, it is estimated that about 97% of your time will be spent NOT surfing!
Imagine your perfect situation for surfing. You are alone or with 1 or 2 friends. The waves are perfect, lined up, 200 yards long with only one 30 second interval every 5 minutes (to allow for paddling out). Constant perfect waves. THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE CREATED with MileLongWave, except for 2 extra benefits. First the wave is endless. Second, the amount of paddling time is substantially reduced.
The purests will say, "but surfing is much more than just riding waves. It's about being in nature, duck diving, waiting and positioning for the perfect wave, and long hard paddles." We disagree.
We believe surfing is about ripping on a perfect wave face, getting barreled, high speed pumping, floaters, off the lips, aerials, bottom turns and even 360s. For long boarders it includes long nose rides and sweeping stylish turns.
Surfing is not paddling out through 10 piles of whitewash, waiting for sets during long lulls, watching other surfers get the wave you want, jockeying for position in a crowded line up, getting caught inside, getting swept down the beach in a side current, etc. Those are all the things you have to do to get those few seconds of joy on the wave face, the place you really want to be.
So we invented an affordable floating wave machine that gives the surfer what he or she wants, astonishing wave face time with rides that last for miles and a platform to perform endless surfing maneuvers.
