Off-the-shelf roller bogie technology allows total control over the wave generation drive mechanism in terms of starting, speed control, and breaking. Each roller bogie can work in unison or independently by track zone. Unlike inferior systems, the Webber system generates waves traveling in either direction in each zone of the pool.
Hydraulic “Tilt, Trim, and Yaw” change the attack angles of the foil to provide any number of wave heights, wave speeds and tube shapes. This unique technology can create a wave which is exact every time, thereby enabling a legitimate and non-circumstantial platform for contests in the sport of surfing.
The hull drive system comprises a looped steel rail track onto which the wheeled carriages are attached. Each carriage is suspended underneath the track, like a carriage on an urban monorail system. By using electric motors to drive the carriages and nitrogen-filled rubber tires on the rails, noise is virtually eliminated. The hull is attached to the carriage by hydraulic actuators which then move each hull to make changes to the wave size and shape. Software controls the speed, the draft, and the angle of each hull. Control software can be programmed to produce small changes in these three elements, resulting in immediate changes to the wave size and shape.
