PRESERVING THE HISTORY AND HERITAGE OF
WAVES AND SURFERS
Recent and predicted changes to waves and coasts suggest that baseline wave quality—the standard by which we compare—will shift through time. This underscores the importance of recording and preserving wave knowledge, not only about waves in the present day, but also waves in the past. From this accumulated wisdom, we can improve our understanding of how our baseline has and will change and eventually become better stewards of our waves and coasts.
To that end, the Surfer Records Project is seeking surfers who, over the course of their lives, have logged a lot of water time. If you have been surfing in the same place (or places) for more than forty years and are interested in participating in this oral history project, then we would love to hear from you.
