Abstract Incorporating recreational surfing into coastal management practices is required to protect the seabed features and oceanographic processes that create surfing waves. A review of research-based surfing literature is undertaken to provide a summary of information available to assist in coastal management decision making around surfing breaks. The different categories of research-based surfing literature are identified as artificial surfing reef (ASR) design, ASR monitoring, ASR… Expand

Wave Peel Tracking: A New Approach for Assessing Surf Amenity and Analysis of Breaking Waves
TLDR
The WPT algorithm provides a robust, automated method for quantifying surf amenity to provide baseline data for surf break conservation and has potential uses to verify numerical modelling of surf breaks and to assess the impact of coastal development on surf breaks. Expand
Applicability of management guidelines for surfing resources in California
Surf breaks are finite, valuable, and vulnerable natural resources, that not only influence community and cultural identities, but are a source of revenue and provide a range of health benefits.Expand
