Using research and economics to protect surfing resources.
What is 'Surfonomics'?
“Surfonomics” aims to document surfing’s economic contributions to local and regional economies. Through Surfonomics, we determine the economic value of a wave and surfing to local communities to help decision makers make better choices to protect their coastal resources and waves.
Surfing is an example of a non-extractive coastal resource. As long as the environment is protected, a surfing wave is a completely renewable resource, and the economic contribution that a surf area bestows is integral in the understanding of coastal economies.
