Surf scene focus of survey
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.
