In this fascinating video from the New Yorker, journalist William Finnegan discusses how the best surfer in the world, Kelly Slater, may have accidentally changed the sport forever in his quest for “the perfect wave”.


Slater’s ten-year project to create the technology to produce a man-made, surf-able wave has seen incredible results. The so-called Surf-Ranch is now used for major televised competitions, as well as a place for people to train and hone their skills. Finnegan, however, discusses the ways in which a man-made “perfect” wave can change the sport and industry forever, and not always in the best way.
