The Physics of Noseriding


Join us at the Noosa Surf Museum for a screening of ‘The Physics of Noseriding’, followed by our expert discussion panel on all things noseriding.

We’ll take a look around the room at all the boards here in the museum and discuss the evolution of shapes and the physics that help to enhance various types of noserides.

The Screening:

The science of surfing’s fluid dance.The noseride is one of surfing’s peak moments; part fluid dynamics, part magic.

But how does noseriding actually work? What makes this suspension between sea and sky even possible?

The Physics of Noseriding explores the question through the eyes of Namaala, a young surfer whose people were flying on the water before the world even knew what surfing was.

Her curiosity invites us to examine the sensation of levitation that unfolds as wave, surfboard and surfer come together for surfing’s fluid dance.
