Not everybody has the opportunity to surf daily or even regularly. The modern life seems to have an ever-increasing demand for human productivity, time, and subsequently, our freedom. Work commitments, fickle surf conditions, and geographical choices can see our water time cut in half immediately. Gone are the days where the eternal surf bum hangs at the beach, jumping in and out of the water all day long with their buddies.
Surfing’s popularity is soaring and with the introduction of wave pools, we’re going to see its relevance explode. No longer will this new breed of city surfer have to wait for their twice-yearly visit to the coast. They’ll have perfect waves sitting on their doorstep. This is the future. But the keyword is future because we’re not there yet.
