The construction of the PerfectSwell(R) Surf Technology (

) venue was accomplished in the year that has seen highly disruptive business

conditions affecting world travel and challenges to productivity. In

cooperation, licensee Surf Stadium Japan (SSJ) and AWM overcame supply chain

and logistics challenges to deliver thousands of components. The civil works

were completed in a record 389 days.


During AWM commissioning, never-before-seen innovations will be put through the

paces. 'Temporal Distortion', a newly invented wave design feature allows for

new dimensions of hydrodynamic control. "Temporal Distortion will lead to an

entirely new selection of waves for both high-performance and learning

applications," said William McFarland, AWM Surf Programmer. "It will add

shifting elements to the surf creating a more dynamic wave overall." Other new

features include upgrades to the system's power response. "Start-up test

results confirm that the enhanced performance response has been achieved." said

Lead Engineer Miquel Lazaro.


PerfectSwell(R) Shizunami demonstrates how high-performance surf can be

achieved in urban, surf-centric, relatively smaller footprint locations,

referred to as 'surf arenas'. This scalability demonstrates how PerfectSwell(R)

Surf Technology can be deployed globally in varied applications.  "Surfing is

in the Olympics for the first time only once.  This is a watershed moment for

the sport." said Bruce McFarland, AWM Founder. "PerfectSwell(R) Shizunami

provides a consistent platform for athlete training, exhibitions, and events

leading up to the Olympic Games."  


An opening date will be announced once the travel ban to Japan is lifted and

AWM can commission PerfectSwell(R) Shizunami.
