Finally: Overhead Man-made Surf!

Of the unsurfable kind, but still...

Snowdonia what now?

That well-overhead sloshing you see above is purely in the name of science, but oh, the possibilities! The Dutch, ever-vigilant to the possibilities of their entire country being subsumed beneath the freezing waters of the Atlantic, built this tsunami-replicating beast to test the water-resisting ability of some of their legendary dike technology. BUT! Listen to this from one of the project directors: “Yesterday, we had a wave of over 5 meters, but we’re hoping to get some larger ones.”

Who isn’t?
