SURFING, 'AIRWAVE' inflatable eco- friendly surf reef.
To manufacture and install an eco- friendly inflatable surf reef. Will cause a wave peak when ocean swell passes over it. Worlds first!
I need your help to fund the manufacture and installation of the worlds first AIRWAVE at a beautiful beach in Perth. I have permission from the local council, a dive team and sail manufacturer and I am ready to go.
All I need are sufficient funds. I have the drive to do the rest.
This project is about making possible, the first ever installation of an air inflated dome-like structure, in shallow water, to produce an A- frame with a rideable face, where previously there was only a closeouts! All without detrimental effects to the environment.
If this project is successful, it will completely alter the way we think about creating waves artificialIy. I have invented and patented, the world's first inflatable surf reef.
Imagine how amazing it would be if you could quickly install a wave - producing surf reef underwater, by merely anchoring a uniquely shaped sail on the bottom, blowing it up with air and then waiting for the next swell to produce waves on it! Imagine how quick and easy for there to be no waves at your local beach the day before and the next day a perfect peak.
My patent covers all shapes for these inflatable, underwater structures, so the possibilities for changing ocean swells to waves in millions of locations worldwide, are endless
Risks and challenges
The unique challenge is the unknown factors the ocean brings to the installation and testing, such as erosion of the sand around the anchors, corrosive effects on the chosen sail material, effects of sand movement at the site and the advent of storm occurrences on the installation. I am committed to testing the installation over a two month period to figure out all these issues as they arise. We also have available, the assistance of a major ocean engineering firm to provide additional testing and data management. This will allow us the ability to professionally capture all data to ascertain improvements needed accurately.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
