Description

Being a great surfer requires more than skill and instinct. It's a sport that relies on science! Without buoyancy, surfers would sink. Without acceleration, they could not travel the length of a wave. Science also plays a role in how surfboards are designed. The history of surfing is a lesson of progress in science. Dive in and find out more!
