Have you ever wanted to know how waves are created or where beach sand comes from? Surfrider Foundation has just launched an exciting new resource – Beachapedia – where you can go to find out information on everything from “backwash” to “undertow”.
Beachapedia captures a wealth of knowledge and experience gained by Surfrider Foundation acitivists, scientists and staff through hundreds of environmental and educational campaigns on the coasts. The resource provides tools and information for communities and individuals alike to help make a postive impact on local beaches.
