Surf’s Up in Cornwall

Waikato University’s resident surf expert – Dr Kerry Black – is helping create waves in Cornwall, where a £6 million proposal for constructing an artificial reef is currently under negotiation. Black and his team of marine consultants – ASR – rate Tolcarne Beach as an ideal site for embedding the giant, sand-filled bags needed to create “a world class surfing break.” Local tourist boards, businesses, and environmental agencies all support the proposal, as does Britain’s growing army of surfers.
