Recently we invited 16 yr old Brazilian surf prodigy Mateus Herdy to drop past our R&D demo centre in Spain to trial the Wavegarden Cove on his new Pukas surfboards.
The son of Alexandre Herdy and the nephew of Guilherme Herdy, both former pro’s and surf legends in Brazil, Mateus was in Europe for the first time competing in the WQS in Zarautz, where he made it through to the semi finals.
Rated as one of the most talented junior surfers in the world, the young upstart was able to put his equipment through its paces in a solo session he won’t be forgetting any time soon.
For those unfamiliar with Wavegarden, we have been developing man-made wave technologies since 2005 and recently launched our latest model, the Wavegarden Cove, capable of producing up 1000 waves per hour. For more information, please check our website www.wavegarden.com.
