Surf’s up!

Europe’s first artificial surf reef at Boscombe has been given the green light.
The Marine and Fisheries Agency has granted Bournemouth Borough Council a special environment licence to begin construction of the project.
Work will begin in spring 2008 and is expected to be completed in time for the October 2008 swell.
Roger Brown, Head of Leisure Services at the Council, said: “This is the fantastic news that everyone has been waiting for. The reef will put Boscombe firmly on the surfing map.”
Specialist construction material for the reef includes ecologically sound geo-textile bags from Australia and the webbing base from New Zealand.
