    How to create a wave pool in Norway

    40:11

    I can picture Daniel teaching volleyball on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro and wondering how these guys can fly in from Norway and enjoy such an amazing quality of life. So, being a man full of initiative he figured it out, jumped on a plane and moved to Norway to study. He had no choice but to work hard and get his degree, which he did. It was an incredible challenge, but he overcame it and is now a thriving member of Norwegian society and has embarked on another major challenge: creating the first wave pool in Norway. Listening to the challenges he has set himself and is overcoming them, I couldn't help but be hugely inspired. I know you will be too. Listen to the end, it wasn't planned but he has an amazing story about a world champion surfer. Check out Sunnnfjord Waves https://www.sunnfjordwaves.com/ Daniel referenced this film about cold water surfing in Iceland: http://www.underanarcticsky.com/ Hoddevik Surfing Beach https://goo.gl/maps/yAqitm3oDinCWmXn6

    Wavegarden update: 43 projects around the world!

    53:40

    Catching up with Wavegarden is an exciting conversation. We discuss the traditional diamond shaped "Cove" and how it could be modified to fit different locations and topographies. We talk energy and how the Wavegarden is more efficient than any of it's competitors. We talk about some of the key projects that they're working on around the world and Séan lists the "next to market" contenders. It's definitely an exciting company to be working for! One point that really stood out for me was when Séan outlined some details of the Fazenda do Grama project in Brazil. Fascinating!
