Inspired by footage of the Waimea river, AWM began research and development on the world's first artificial standing wave, SurfStream®. Testing started with a 1/12th scale model in founder Bruce McFarland's backyard. Then, in 2004, the first rideable prototype was installed in shipping containers and tested by local New Jersey surfers. Since then, incremental improvements of the technology and a growing interest in surfing outside of the ocean has led to the opening of more than a dozen SurfStream® surf parks worldwide.
In 2007 The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA commissioned AWM to produce a wave model that could help visualize and define the differences between Tsunamis and regular ocean swells. The system created for that exhibit evolved into technology called PerfectSwell®, AWM's answer to creating the infinite variety of surf found in the ocean. Working incrementally along the way, the development of full scale PerfectSwell® systems has changed the surfing world by adding the availability of high performance training in a controlled environment. The newest PerfectSwell® installation brings world class surf to Shizunami, Japan, coinciding with surfing's debut as an olympic sport in the 2020 games.
AWM's technology is proven commercially and the PerfectSwell® installation in Waco, TX is currently the world's number one surf destination. AWM is focused on advancing artificial wave technology and providing surf to populations where it is otherwise unavailable. Through testing, incremental scaling, and reliable engineering, AWM delivers quality and memorable experiences for any level of surfer.
