Scientists to study top NZ surf-breaks

PihaHeraldiStockScientists are set to begin a major study of seven of New Zealand’s top surf breaks.

In a three-year study, researchers from Raglan firm eCoast Marine Consulting and Research will gather baseline data – including wind and wave conditions and underwater topography – on the seven breaks.

Once collected, the data will be used to create a detailed description of how the surf-breaks work from both a physical and scientific viewpoint.

The study’s results would support the 2010 New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement, which called for protection of surf-breaks deemed “of national significance”.
