  • WHY CITIZEN SCIENCE

    This approach to conducting scientific research empowers members of the public to partner with the research community to help make new discoveries. Our formula is simple: give surfers the opportunity to collaborate with scientists to share their observations, ask new questions, and learn new things about our waves and oceans. We need your help. Share your wave knowledge. Ask a question. Get involved. Help us keep the pulse of the ocean.
