YOUR WAVE KNOWLEDGE
No one observes the ocean more carefully than surfers. This careful observation leads to deep wave knowledge—an intuitive understanding of how waves behave and how to safely and successfully ride them. Surfers know waves in a way no one else does. By sharing this knowledge through our anonymous survey, you will help us understand the ocean better.
This project—our first—is ongoing. More than 3,000 surfers from around the world have taken the survey so far! From the careful observational data they have shared, we are developing several threads of research. Of special significance, we are generating a prediction of how sea level rise will affect the future of surf-spots. This prediction is important to surfers and coastal communities worldwide.
