Wavepools?

They look unreal and am looking forward to trying out Urbnsurf in Melbourne. However, I don’t think they should be on the World Tour. The unpredictability of surfing in the ocean is what makes competitive surfing special. Nothing like seeing someone snag a bomb in the final minute of a heat to get the score. The same mindless 3-foot wave surfed to skatepark level consistency just doesn’t excite me.
