Father-Son Trio Rip Munich Airport’s Man-Made Wave

With more crowded line-ups, a growing hatred of localism, and some people's lack of access to a good break, the age of manufactured waves is now upon us.

William Finnegan, Author of Barbarian Days, Pens His Take on Kelly’s Wave Pool

In a really not-so-odd twist of fate, the world’s best surf writer, William Finnegan, author of Barbarian Days, just wrote about the world’s best surfer creating the world’s best wave. Why is this a story? Because Kelly Slater is at the heart of it, and he created something artificial that possibly even bests the real thing.
