Physics Project Of Surfing...

My friend and I are doing a project on the surfing of physics and the physics associated with noseriding. If anyone has some useful information that we could use it'd be great if you would share it with us! Thanks alot!

Thats quite a sppecific area, were you not aoud to do a broader area, doing it on how waves are formed, break how wind effects them would be way easier if you were aloud?

Get some questions together & post on swaylocks.
Loads of geeks on there who would have an opinion on that, and also have the enthusiasm to share :wink:
Good luck! :D

we're tending to focus more on how a wave is formed in different parts of the world and the characteristics of the wave according to the layout of the oceanfloor, (Jaws, Pipeline, etc.) and how one is able to noseride without the tail lifting up and the nose completely submerging...

there was a really in depth article about the science of noseriding (board and wave type) in a recent CARVE mag.
