From Gizmodo: It uses computer-controlled actuators that move the water in perfect synchronization. The computer software uses fluid dynamics algorithms to calculate the necessary motions.
Not sure how practical it could be to make better waves in the Great Lakes for kayak surfing but I’m willing to volunteer to try to figure it out.
