Surfing lesson. Students on the Surf Science degree course at the University of Plymouth, England. They are trialing various types and designs of surfboard. This course is the first of its kind in the world, and teaches business skills, materials science, wave mechanics, aerodynamics as well as surfing history & techniques. Plymouth University has sold the course to the Edith Cowen University in Australia and is in talks with the University of Hawaii. It is attempting to form a tripartite agreement so that students would study for a year at each of the three institutions. Photographed on Fistral Beach, England.
