UWC hosted LAYTON WAVE POOL NIGHT 13 Nov 7-10pm

Post by Jeff Young on Sat 09 Oct 2010, 12:15 am

Its that time of year again, WAVE POOL TIME!
We will be having the first wave pool session of the year on Sat, Nov 13th from 7pm to 10pm. You can start showing up early and normally there is no one in the water and you can jump in early. (say...630ish)

Layton Surf and Swim
Right behind the Layton Police Dept on Wasatch Drive, Layton. Look for the big white bubble. We will have the gate to the rear of the building open, so make your way around to that gate and you'll have an easy access to the double side doors to bring your stuff in. Please remember that the bubble above the pool is held up by air pressure from within the bubble. Opening the doors for an extended period of time will cause problems. We normally get a bunch of boats ready to enter and then get em in real quick.

The cost- $5 for members, $10 for non members and for families. Please make contact with the person inside the pool area at the picnic table to pay the fee, NOT the person at the front desk. The club has already paid them. Both pumps are up and working great- no issues.

Ok, got some people asking what a "Wave pool session" is... so here is a brief explanation for those who have never been.

This is a huge pool, covered and warm inside the tent over it, that is about 12' deep at one end and a few inches deep at the opposite end. There are two huge pumps that articulate the water up and down about 6-8' that then creates three wave areas to form. One along each wall and one in the middle. These waves are surfable and quite fun. Last year they had some serious issues with the pumps and we ended up dealing with only one pump working for most of the winter... still fun but nothing like when its working full blast. The pumps are working great now, from what the manager told me yesterday.

I would recommend that you wear a helmet as the waves break in the shallow end and sometimes it will flip you... your head vs concrete... its what helmets are made for.

The waves come in 'sessions'... we'll have waves for 20 min or so, then calm for 20 min or so. Those wanting to simply do roll practice have plenty of time to do so in the flat times.. and during the wavy periods if you get into the deepest section the water is like a roller coaster, bouncing up and down quite a ways. You can roll there too.

Last year we worked out them letting up seal launch off the high wall into the deep end. Its maybe 6-8' and fun to try. If you launch when the pumps are rocking and time it right, the water will be going up and down and can either increase the 'fall' or decrease it, depending on what you want.

We've had upwards of 40 boaters attend, and last year we did it once a month, sometimes twice.
