May 8, 2012 – American Wave Machines of Solana Beach, California announced today that they have been selected as the supplier to build Russia’s first ever surf park at the Sheksna Resort. The artificial wave technology to be utilized is a 35,000 square foot PerfectSwell™ Model 1672 wave pool produced by American Wave Machines.
PerfectSwell is an entirely new approach to generating large waves in pools with the emphasis on wave quality and the surfing experience. With no moving parts in the water, sophisticated computer controls modulate wave shape, ride duration, frequency and energy efficiency. Analogous to a phased array design, PerfectSwell wave size is unlimited. Three simultaneously barreling waves across the width of the pool can be generated at intervals as short as six seconds.
The system includes innovative sanitation and a green heating system extending the operating season with no additional energy usage. “For my resort, I want a pool that will cater to active families and allow them to learn to surf. The design is great for contests, events, and shows,” said the owner. “AWM has provided excellent project support working with my local requirements.” Read the full article at AmericanWaveMachines.com and check out the Sheksna Resort – Nominated as Russia’s Leading Spa Resort by World Travel Awards.
