Oh she's a peach!
There ain’t a lot the Chinese can’t do, those clever and beautiful bastards with the Oliver Cromwell hair helmets and ability to mimic anything that comes out of Europe or the US.
And, here, revealed for the very first time, is China’s first wavepool, which you’ll find in the ancient city of Anyang (population five million) in Henan province.
You might come for the emperor’s mausoleums, the Wenfeng Pagoda and the Tomb of Fu Hao, but you’ll definitely stay for the country’s interpretation of the modern, foil-driven surf tank.
Although the film reveals little of the pool’s finer details, would you say it’s closer to Wavegarden or KSWaveCo?
And on a side note: did you know that the Chinese have a word for their cheap imitations?
They call it the shanzhai.
My immediate impression of the pool is that it lacks a little, cough, cough, finesse.
