Boscombe surf reef: things should be fine tuned

The Boscombe artificial surf reef has been working below the standard levels, the Bournemouth Borough Council has confirmed.

The quality of the new surf spot was studied by experts of the Plymouth University. The results are clear: only 33% of the overall objectives were achieved by the new Boscombe surf reef.

The riding is not long enough and the waves are not consistent. This means that the last payment of £150,000 to ASR Ltd will be suspended.

The conclusions will be discussed publicly on 26 May. The findings will be discussed publicly at a council cabinet meeting on 26 May.

ASR Ltd and Bournemouth Borough Council will work to fine tune the Boscombe surf reef.
