American Wave Machines, Inc. designs, engineers, manufactures and develops world class surf pools, wave systems and surf venues. Founded in 2000 by California surfer Bruce McFarland, the company defined the “Surf Venue” at the prestigious MIT Forum at the Salk Institute in April of 2009. Since then, the first commercially successful stand-alone surf venues have opened all over the world including Montreal and Waco, TX. PerfectSwell® is the first surf pool system capable of creating an authentic paddle in surfing experience that delivers 100% real ocean dynamics found in nature. Think size of a football field or larger. OffShore Surf® is the world’s first standing wave machine that delivers a deep water stationary surfing experience scalable to various spaces, think size of a tennis court. AWM is the only company in the space of out of ocean surfing delivering both small scale and large scale solutions addressing urban and resort markets. The company maintains a broad patent portfolio covering both technologies.
