Keep safe in the surf this summer by learning how to “read” the conditions of the ocean and beach by attending this FREE Science of the Surf (SOS) presentation at Council Chambers on Wednesday 3 February 2010 at 7.00pm.
SOS is an educational program aimed at providing a basic scientific understanding of the way that beaches, waves and rip currents work.
Science of the Surf has won national awards and has been seen on prominent programs such as Catalyst, The 7.30 Report and A Current Affair.
Dr Brander’s presentation provides a visually powerful explanation of coastal processes, with an emphasis on beaches and the surf. This is essential knowledge for anyone who uses the beach: swimmers, bodysurfers, surfers and parents supervising children at the beach.
Bookings are essential.
To book or for more information contact Melissa Allen on 9391 7095.
