Karin Frisch, her husband Josema Odriozola, his brother Fernando, and a small army of engineers have been hard at work in this beautiful little canyon for more than a decade, developing Wavegarden’s technologies. “Ideally, we’d like to see pools two-thirds bigger than this one,” Josema said of The Cove’s teardrop design; a wide, curved outer perimeter with the wave-making apparatus jutting into the pool’s center, splitting the pool in half. “With a commercial facility using this design, you’re not looking at five or six people in the water at a time.

Given a large enough pool, and the right size machine, Fernando supposes they could make a wave like that, but six or eight feet. “It’s definitely the closest thing I could imagine to surfing in the ocean,” German pro Leon Glatzer said after his first experience. “I think it’ll be incredible for training and for developing technique, for sure.
