A year has passed since the small blocks were put in place. So long, in my mind. It is with great pride that I worked on the White Water course in Al Ain UAE. A liquid play park in the middle of the sand. The water, all of it is piped in from Abu Dhabi, its a major task for the team. The building blocks are moved by hand, no easy task. Man power at its best.
Pete Aldwinckle, Ian Ganderton, Ben White and myself, spent a tense few months playing with this big jigsaw.
The course is split in 3, with the rapids building from a lazy river style to that of slalom and freestyle standard. Its not often that you get the change to build a river, to play at your whim and dance on the waves you made.
This is just a snap shot of the building process, the course is yet to open to the public, I cannot wait for that.
