ADG’s WaveTek wave generation systems turns 50

WaveTek® is celebrating 50 years of innovative products, pool designs and technology. WaveTek wave generation systems represent over 90% of all recreational wave systems in the U.S. and are installed in over 450 locations world-wide.

Pioneering the industry, ADG’s WaveTek wave generation set the standard in wave performance and technology, developing numerous industry “firsts” such as the first US Pneumatic system, first tsunami solitary wave technology, first 6 foot pneumatic parallel wave, first lazy river waves, staggered caisson design, gutterless wave pool, double break wave pool floor, and the first variable wave pattern programmer – their patented VaraWave® technology.

“WaveTek waves are unmatched in the industry. “We’ve combined creativity and technology to provide our clients with innovative wave pool shapes, technological advancements and creative applications that are not found anywhere else in the industry,” says Jim Dunn, President of ADG, “WaveTek is continually evolving to meet the growing demands of our clients, and we are always working towards what’s next.”
