Here is an interesting addition to the Museum of British Surfing collection, picked up at the surf jumble yesterday (thanks Simon Knight).
A New Scientist article from 1978 discussing surfboard design, in particular how bottom contours and applied fluid dynamics affect surfboard performance.
It also considers an interesting idea on making a standing wave in a river or flowing water stream like they do for white water canoeists. mmmm There’s a thought…
If science isn’t you thing, then you can still come to the Museum of British Surfing for a proper old school surfing experience.
We are open 11am to 3pm on Sunday, and everyday except Mondays (unless it’s a Bank Holiday).
