wave pools

lets segue a little bit from your conversation. I've been wondering where the rideable wave pools are? after reading the wonderful dialogue on this forum, ive only gotten PSA and CME.. Where are the other pools located? I know there's one in Bulacan, but dont know what the name is and how to get there. Ive tried the net but forums are all i get. so, back to my question:

where are the rideable wave pools?
what are they called?
how do i get there?
do they have websites?

thanks..

Are we talking about taxes here or teaching safety?

Pay for your own lessons and try it yourself, Daryl even suggested you can take it for free. Imagine that, criticizing Daryl and now you get lessons for free. But don't ask me to take the lessons for you because you're the one who needs to prove if Daryl teaches safety or not.

Don't resort to name calling and personal attacks if you can't prove your point. Try it first, then give your opinion.

Rodel,
Why do you insist on being a lapdog? It was an issue over a surf school in a wave pool that Daryl runs and operates yet you insist on barking for him. Why? Aren't you happy with yourself?  To attack me personally by continuously calling me out IS a personal attack. To repeat a "free" lesson from a man who doesn't respect my opinion is an invitation for ridicule or maybe even physical harm. So what makes you think i'm naive enough to go? I'm not you son. Thank you for that. So before you start posting hate threads about me (as you've done so far) think before you act, as you've shown everyone that you're Daryl's lapdog. That's YOUR FREE LESSON for today. Now go pay his taxes for him.

Al kieta, You have had so many opportunities to escape your ridiculous situation of commenting on and getting engulfed in a topic i dont think you know a lot about. Now I can say you look absolutly ridiculous. You dont need to come to the wavepool to get ridiculed, you are doing it in here all to yourself. I dont even know the other guy. He didnt attack you. You attacked him, just like you attack me. You dont listen. You wont even try. As for me physically attacking you, whats that? Are you that guilty for making ridiculous comments. Do worry, Im not angry. I actually feel sorry for people like you. Thats why the free surf lesson is still open to you.

woah...i can feel the tension! haha guys it doesn't matter if its in a pool or the beach as long as we all surf and get stoked!:) right??hehe wave pools are not that bad i think because if its the basics that it teaches then its all good, daryl even said that they invite them to go with them to the beach so that they can appreciate the real thing also. some really would choose the pool first before going into the real thing so they'll get the hang of it first and also, some might be thinking that they don't want to to get humiliated in the beach where the consistent surfers are. so stop this argument because its getting nowhere lets just talk about getting stoked or try making a pool that actually replicates a real wave! like the ones in japan and in Malaysia!hehe

peace!:)

RE: Are wave pools a farce?

The wave pool in Malaysia is the best one I've seen.there was an article in a surg mag a few years back (PLB-from Aus maybe) . The surfers were actually taking off and sliding along 3-5 footers , not just standing in the same spot......cool!     Still , not the real thing........a bit of fun maybe...        P. S.--- Bondi in the 70's and 80's (and 60's and even nowadays)--yeah Darryl--Bunny Bay was always a favourite !   Crowded on small days , but when it got overhead or bigger the crowd was on the beach watchin !! hahaha!---sorted the men from the boys that place.......! ! !

Hi Pat, I have tried the wave pool in KL, its called Sunway Lagoon. It is a soft fun wave, but does get boring after a while if you can surf. I ended up ditching my board and had a great time body surfing it. So it does have the power. There is only 1 wave every 4 minutes though, which its an all aboard chaotic ride. The best wave pool now, is in tenerife. Google it. The wave pools here are just ridable, but the soft boards we use are so buoyant, you can have some fun and it is a good workout no matter who you are. The good news is, that there are people planning the real stuff in the very near future. In Manila.

Hey Pat,
Whats Bunny Bay? If you are talking about Bondi, that's the 1st time in 45 years I've heard it be referred to as "Bunny Bay". As for people on the beach when it was overhead, you obviously have never been there when it is big. I watched my best friends brother (Steve Corrigan) surf it 20ft+ (30ft+ faces) in the 70's, my brother 12-15ft, Col Sutherland,  all the Cram brothers, Cheyne Horan, Gerhart Til, Carrets, Elliot Moore, Mick Ford, Myself and many more of my friends. Pat the only nick name we ever had for bondi  was scum valley. Bunny Bay sounds so gay. It was never called that. And in the 70's, we had more big wave riders than any other beach in the world and most of the guys i mentioned were pro. You can google that too.
