The Open Community Minded River Wave Design Project

Speaker: Jacob Quinlan – Alberta River Surfing Association

Jacob agreed to give a talk about their plans to drop river wave generating hardware with a permitted construction time of September 3-15 in the Kananaskis this year.

Jacob told me their mission is: “build the world’s best river surfing wave, freely share the design and construction know-how to make it as easy as possible for surfing to occur in a river near you”

Surf Anywhere is looking to computer modeling  (CFD) to accelerate the way towards reaching these goals. Jacob is already stoked about our clubs interest and looking forward to meeting everyone at the meeting.
