Make Believe Surf in Japan's Oiso Long Beach Wave Pool

My youtube friend Ericsurf6, along with Hikosaemon and Nattopower took me to the Oiso Long Beach (大磯ロングビーチ)Water Park while I was visiting Hiratsuka in Kangawa, Japan. It was my first time in a wave pool and it was pretty difficult. It was lots of fun, but I think it's kind of funny to have a wave pool just a kilometer away from real, ocean waves.
Today, I surfed in Venice beach pier where the waves are 3-4 feet but very angry. One of them took my surfboard (jacob the surfboard) and threw it into the sand. Now I have to spend $35 to fix poor Jacob, and I can't ride him till saturday.
