Wave Pools
We’re a bunch of selfish people when it comes to surfing aren’t we? When we are out with our mates, yep the ones we have coffee with at the end of a session, and mull over the waves we could have made, and quietly grumble under our breath that “Pete” sitting next to you dropped in, and shut it down. “Wouldn’t have made it any way Pete…bullcrap”!
All our good banks that we kept secret for so long are totally packed now. We have ourselves to blame on that. We are all guilty of shouting out loud “what a great surf today at FavSpot,” and we forget that news travels real fast. It soon becomes every ones “FavSpot,” so it’s our own fault that “FavSpot” is packed. We got to bloody well tell no one at all about that NEW “FavSpot,” would be a good start!
Surfing is arguably the biggest growing sport in the world today. Any country with a beach, point, forget that,…a wave, will have surfers on it NOW. Take a look at the cold water countries for example, they would have to be nutters to surf freezing water, but they do. The beach break in Northern Ireland for instance http://www.discovernorthernireland.com/Surfing-A3573 ”Surfing in Northern Ireland offers waves to suit everyone, from beginners to champions. The surf scene is based on Northern Ireland’s North Coast, and in particular a place called Portrush, which is home to several surf schools and surf shops..and the weather is no excuse for not getting out surfing. The use of modern wetsuits means that surfing in Northern Ireland, and that part of the worlds longitude, is a year round sport.”
Well there you are, Wetsuits to suit any weather, and even the cold Irish breaks are now “Full,” so bugger off from my “FavSpot” the Irish say, in their Irish way!
Surfing is a world sport and will become an Olympic one as well, that’s sooner, not later .

Wave Pools springing up all over the world will force championship competitions into an arena that only have perfect waves, and suitable for an Olympic event. So then it will only be the competitor, that will make the difference. With these Wave Pools taking the load off our “FavSpot,” being a good thing, but as you have it, give surfers what they want, and more of them will come, so even the Wave Pools will become crowded. Yes, even with beginners.
Even then, the respite on our “FavSpot” will be short, as more people take up the sport, so more people come!
Like building a new road to ease the congestion…more people use it.
So what we got to do is learn to relax a bit, and adjust to the crowds, it’s inevitable that more of them are coming.
Or…get up bloody earlier in the morning to “FavSpot,” and hit the waves at “shark feeding time,” because all our “FavSpot’s” around the world,…are becoming FULL!
