News has just dropped that for the last ten years Kelly Slater has been secretly working on creating a perfect man made wave, and the first impressions we have of the Kelly Slater Wave Company lagoon, it looks like the 11 time World Champion has absolutely nailed the concept. Kelly has released a video of the moment he first saw the wave break on the 5th of December along with footage of the very first wave he rode and the perfect barrel he scored.
Kelly made the announcement on his Instagram page along with a link to the Kelly Slater Wave Company website, where a three and half minute reveals the perfect glassy wave. It is fair to say that Kelly was like a kid on Christmas morning when he saw the wave break so perfectly for the first time in the misty light of dawn. Details are closely guarded at present, and for the time being the only footage released shows a right hand wave, whilst the location of the wave lake is also being kept secret and the only information offered, is that it is 110 miles from any coast.
We have embedded the official video of ‘Kelly’s Wave’ below, make sure you check out the wave Kelly gets from the 3 minute mark – 20 second barrels – yes please! Kelly is claiming this to be the best manmade wave ever made, looking at the footage we have to agree. Let us know what you think?
