Here's my mind working up crazy ideas while i stare at unrideably choppy water. What it there was a way of creating the perfect wake, without a boat, lake, or need for a lot of space!? The ability to have riding regardless of the weather. I'm sure most of you have seen endless pools and those surfing machines, well what if you had two machines (or one crafty one) side by side to recreate a wake that was always consistent and could run for ever. I looked into those endless surf machines at http://waveloch.com and mentally put two of the small ones side by side. If you could kind of tweak the machine so rather than the water running up the face of the machine, but laterally so it would mimic forward movement, couldn't you recreate boat riding? As I run my mind here, the only problem I can foresee is line tension, but couldn't you solve that with some sort of slow retraction device, similar to auto-belay mechanisms at a climbing wall?
