Locals only – The Problem

Build 13 artificial reefs a day, and 13,000 people a day will take up surfing. Just watch.
By the year 2025, the average surf session might well consist of 1.7 rides per surfer per session. For modern surfers, crowds simply come with the territory, and the territory is finite.
Trying to stem this tide of surfing’s popularity is fruitless. “The lady doth protest too much, methinks,” says Hamlet. It’s the same with every surfer “claiming” his or her territory. We’ll just have to cope.
