Sophie Surfs In The Metro

Cushe Ambassador Sophie Hellyer appears in London's Metro newspaper this week. The UK surf champ brightens up a grey city commute with photos of her surfing in the desert. Sophie was lucky enough to surf the worlds most advanced man-made waterspouts facility, located in the United Arab Emirates. The surf pool is completely programmable, with six settings – break wave right, break wave left, break parallel, two separate half waves, a V-out, and a V-in. Even the wave height can be adjusted from 1ft up to 11ft. Sophie talks about how this technology could improve conditions for competitive surfing contests "The problem with surf contests is that wave conditions are rarely good enough, but a pool like this would be simply amazing and a terrific addition to the Olympics". Surfing as an Olympic sport-now that would be really Cushe!
