When Scientists & Jake Marshall Go Surfing
Injecting science into surfing is nothing new. Science exists in several elements of surfing, including wave mechanics, swell models, weather patterns, athlete performance, and a long list of other areas.
"All the technology we experimented with this week in Mexico will help surfing in the long run. I’m really excited to see what the future holds," - Jake Marshall.
The goal of the Red Bull Surf Science project is not to revolutionize the way we approach surfing, or even try to elevate it to next level, instead the objective is to further the technology that is being developed, and test it in the harshest conditions possible. If we can get this technology to work and produce credible results, we'll be able to take key learnings and hopefully improve athlete performance, not only in the water but with other sports as well.
