There are Over 3,300,000 Surfers in the U.S

By simply riding waves, Smartfin surfers are turning wave sets into data sets to inform scientists about the health of our ocean.


The Smartfin is a surfboard fin with sensors that measure multiple properties to inform oceanographic researchers and the general public about ocean health in nearshore ecosystems like the surf zone. Using the data collected with Smartfin, we can better understand ocean health issues and mobilize our communities to take action to combat these problems caused by climate change
