Here (
is an interesting article about the value of waves to not only to surfers but entire communities. It describes the basics of how waves are formed, travel across oceans, and set up along the shoreline. It's not possible to calculate the intrinsic value of a surf spot like Kanaha or Hookipa, but it would be fun to know the value of those spots in dollars to the communities around them. My guess is that it would be a lot more then most people would imagine. It's all of our responsibilities to protect them. Three of the best surf spots in Maui are in danger of development right now, Honolua bay( Makena( and Maalaea( Check out the sites and see if you can do anything to help.
