The Center for Surf Research is THE international hub for research on surf tourism and issues of sustainability as they relate to surf tourism and the broader surfing industry and community. We aim to provide links to and between the global community of researchers and academics working in this field, the political decision makers and industries who need this research to make informed resource management decisions and improve sustainable practices, and communities and surf consumers to support their needs and facilitate informed consumer decisions.
