American Wave Machines, Inc. Making Waves for Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc.
Tillman the bulldog will be surfing down Orange Grove Boulevard on an American Wave Machines system developed specifically for the Rose Parade
Over 100 dogs turned out at Fiesta Floats for the casting call to show off their surfing skills in a 70 foot long wave pool developed by AWM. The winners will be surfing on the float for the prestigious 123rd Rose Parade on January 2, 2012 in Pasadena, CA. The float, built by Fiesta Floats and wave generator by American Wave Machines will break the Guinness World Record as the World’s Heaviest and Longest Float.
“We’ve been involved in a lot of wave technology applications, but this has to be one of most unique. I grew up surfing in Manhattan Beach, California and always watched the Rose Parade. I never imagined that dogs would be surfing down Orange Grove Boulevard, let alone that my company would develop the system,” said AWM Founder and President, Bruce McFarland. “The team at Fiesta Floats and Natural Balance have been great to work with.”
“Being a Southern California surfer, I was stoked to find American Wave Machines for this project, a company with California roots dedicated to creating authentic surfing experiences,”
