Surf scene fo­cus of sur­vey

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

NOOSA’S renowned surf­ing scene is the fo­cus of new re­search at the Univer­sity of the Sun­shine Coast, with stu­dents hit­ting the beaches yes­ter­day to sur­vey surfers from near and far.

Chief in­ves­ti­ga­tor Dr Javier Leon says the in­for­ma­tion will be used to build the most com­pre­hen­sive pic­ture to date of the eco­nomics, cul­ture, at­ti­tudes and as­pi­ra­tions of peo­ple surf­ing in the Noosa World Surf­ing Re­serve.

“I was sur­prised to find that there’s no real base­line data re­lat­ing to surf­ing in Noosa,” Dr Leon said.

The re­sults will be pre­sented at the Surf and Sus­tain­abil­ity Day hosted on March 7 as part of the Noosa Fes­ti­val of Surf­ing.
