Overview

This text is a reprint of the 2002 publication in which Butt and Russell (both U. of Plymouth, UK) explore the science of waves from a surfing point of view. Written for surfers, the text does not require a science background but does contain enough technical material to also be suitable for first-year undergraduates in oceanography and surf science. Coverage includes the life of a wave from its birth in an oceanic storm to its dissipation on shore, and scientific aspects of surfing, including surfing in the storm, local coastal winds, water temperature, tides, world wave climate, and wave forecasting.
