Press Release from AWM – December 10, 2012

American Wave Machines, Inc. (AWM), the world leader in artificial wave technology for surf parks, announces three technological breakthroughs for PerfectSwell, an innovative new approach to generating large waves with the emphasis on wave quality and surfing.

AWM’s patented PerfectSwell™ is the next generation of artificial wave pools with its patent pending PerfectSwell Wave App™, patented Reflecting Wave Generator and Phased Array Control System, providing the opportunity for the global development of surfing outside of the world’s oceans.  Production of the first PerfectSwell™ is now underway in Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Olympics. The 35,000 square foot PerfectSwell™ wave pool is expected to open at the Sheksna Resort, nominated as Russia’s Leading Spa Resort by World Travel Awards.

AWM’s PerfectSwell Wave App™ allows surfers to call up their favorite waves from the lineup or from shore with their iPad or iPhone, giving athletes the ability to control the session.  Wave direction, size and intensity can easily be modified from a smart phone, allowing surfers to have the perfect session every time.  Coaches and trainers can easily manipulate the surf for the skill level and physical location of trainees in the pool.  Surfers can record the ride with a built in media option.

Athletes and surf teams no longer have to wait for the perfect swell to practice. Rigorous conditioning and training can easily take place in a PerfectSwell pool.  There is no waiting for waves. The first air-powered system to mimic ocean waves, AWM’s PerfectSwell Reflecting Wave Generator creates circular particle motion waves like the ocean, using proprietary technology capable of producing 10 maximum size barreling waves per minute. The PerfectSwell Phased Array Control system controls chamber firing patterns and sequences creating any wave breaking characteristic from mushy to pitching to timed aerial closeouts.

“To date, PerfectSwell is the most versatile system available globally with the most innovative technology providing the best user experience, ” says Bruce McFarland, President of American Wave Machines, Inc. “Our PerfectSwell technology can create an infinite variety of waves. Point breaks, reef breaks and beach breaks can all be replicated in our surf pools and waves can be easily adjusted and customized without need for special bottom contours.”
