Lecture: The World in the Curl: An Unconventional History of Surfing
Surfing may seem like a laid-back sport, but it's surprisingly high-tech. Peter Westwick, Searle Visiting Professor in the History of Science at Caltech and The Huntington, discusses how surfboards and wetsuits derive from military technology, and how coastlines and even waves are increasingly engineered.
