Blowing the location on Slater’s wave pool
After seeing the perfection unveiled by Kelly and his team at Kelly Slater Wave Pools this morning, my first question was: Where is the test facility and how did they keep it a secret for so long?
Theories were already starting to fly across the internet, but a single rural satellite image with an interesting long, black rectangular shape was the starting point of my investigation.
The clue were easy enough to follow: Central Valley, California, with a clear route 41 numbered along with 18th Avenue.
The address pointed to what looked to be a single ski water park over 110 miles from the coast (the same distance mentioned by Kelly in the clip). Was this the secret location that the KSWC had been keeping under wraps?
