The Physics of Surfing

I find these to be strangely entertaining to read, even thought I am not a good swimmer, and I certainly haven't come anywhere remotely close to doing anything resembling a wave surfing (although, come to think of it, I do work with "wakefields" and make electrons "surf" on those wakefields. So I suppose that's close enough).

In any case, these are two parts of an article on the physics of surfing, in case you are curious about such things.

Part 1
Part 2
