Yeah OK, I hear ya, it sounds like a plan from a Ian Fleming novel, and granted, we are not scientifical and shit, but hear us out…
The closer the moon, the stronger the pull of its gravity on the sea, the bigger the tide.
Think about it. Think about being able to harness this power. Maybe even bring the moon closer for certain evenings and weekends so that your spot is guaranteed swell, and then putting it back after. It’s genius and we can think of no downsides at all. It begs the question, why is Kelly Slater putting all that effort into his ‘wave pond’ instead of teaming up with NASA?!
Plastic waste may be a more pressing issue, but this is clearly… way more fun…?
So, how do we bring the moon closer? Well, we’ve thought about this for way more than 10 minutes and done some maths, and we have thought of at least 3 ways to make this dream a reality.
