New ‘surfonomics’ subject set to make waves

Did you know that the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) now offers a new ‘surfonomics’ geography subject where students will have the opportunity to study the science of surfing, including wave characteristics and tourism benefits! Using technology such as drones and GPS devices, students of Special Field Studies Topic (Geography of Surfing) will measure waves along the iconic Noosa point breaks that have been recognised as a World Surfing Reserve. The subject will be first offered by USC during the upcoming summer semester and again in Semester 1 2019.
