Default Another ocean wave power generator

This one looks pretty interesting. Desalination is a nice goal, but I would imagine power generation would be the quicker and easier first step. Still, cool design. Hope it holds up to a rough ocean though.

Looks cool

But I wonder how long those hoses and connections will last if they are constantly bending in the salt and UV?
Something purely mechanical might last longer.

Wave power has the advantage of also producing power at night.
If this system is using waves to pump water or air, then maybe some of that can be stored in a pressure tank before going to the generator?
