"Surf Science has offered me so many unique opportunities."

"I wanted a mix of higher education learning and the outdoor sports industry. So when I came across Surf Science, it was the perfect fit. As surf science students, we have so many opportunities to interact with people in the environmental science and surfing industry. I feel that meeting the big names in the business, so early on, puts us in a unique position and enhances our graduate opportunities."
