Wave House San Diego

Have any of you seen the WaveLoch at the WaveHouse in San Diego? This thing is a blast…it shoots out water from Jacuzi Jets on steroids at a rate of 50,000 gallons a minute. The way the platform the water is shot into is shaped, it creates a perfect barrel (for goofy footers) and propels riders at a land speed of around 30mph. The catch is, the rider looks like they are standing still, but they aren’t…not even close.

I think a lot of people get injured on the Stand Still wave at the wavehouse, but that is the risk everyone takes. If you grew up skating backyard ramps, getting injured doing what you love is just apart of your everyday deal. There is 4 pages of injury disclaimers that everyone needs to sign before they are allowed to ride the wave.

The question i have is this: If the WaveHouse stand still wave actually breaks…is the WaveHouse responsible for the hospital bills and stuff? I am not saying, ouch, I fell and broke my leg while having fun (and at my own risk), I am saying, if the jets malfunctioned and started shooting out 1,000,000 gallons of water per minute and shot the rider off the back of the wave, over the fence and into the street 40 yards away…who is responsible?

I want some feedback on The WaveHouse Lawsuit question before I create my next post…

  1. Surely there was a section in their disclaimer releasing them from liability if the even of a hard/software failure. If not, their lawyers suck! My dad even had that in the release parents had to sign for kids to ride the half pipe in our backyard.

  2. Well, a lawyer can write up a disclaimer that say’s they are not liable for a damn thing, no matter what. BUT that does not make them unresponsible for gross negligence. If I was shot off the back of the wave, into the street, due to a hard/software failure, you better believe my lawyer would be a-knockin’ and they absolutely would be responsible.
