From Quartz :
Monster Energy Presents a film by Tim Boydell and Reubyn Ash, documenting 3, 50 degree, dusty days at the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool in Al Ain near Dubai. In what is regarded as ‘one of the best wave pools in the world’, Reubyn Ash Had three days to see what he could do. Nestled in the foot hills of the Jebel Hafeet mountain range, the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool set the scene for 3 days of non-stop surfing in this rare and unique location.
What is truly possible when nature is set to one side and instinct is replaced with passion, determination and skill?
Tim Boydell and Monster Energy’s Reubyn Ash set about documenting their adventure into the Arabian desert with this question in mind. If actions speak louder than words then Reubyn’s surfing speaks for itself.
Reubyn Ash “one of the oddest things was losing the ‘random’ not surfing by instinct and momentary changes in the sea, it actually made surfing this wave harder!…but once you had the wave dialled in…the possibilities felt endless. I just wish I could go back for a week!”
