Slater continues to promote his revolutionary pool, inviting professional surfers to test out the artificial barrels.

The latest legend to grace the waves is three-time world champion Mick Fanning, who was captured riding what seemed to be an endless barrel in the clip posted by the Kelly Slater Wave Company on Instagram.

Fanning is no stranger to the perfect wave, recently hanging up his competition jersey to explore waves and travel all over the world.

He became obsessed with creating the perfect artificial wave ten years ago after learning about the endless surf-ring concept.

Slater’s first videos of his wave pool sent shock waves across the surfing community.

WSL hopes to use this partnership to build a global network of wave pool training centers that “will democratize surfing and provide incredible training opportunities for athletes as well as aspirational surfers in areas with no ocean waves.” Slater reportedly is planning to build his first public wave pool in Florida in the coming year.
