Slater sat early in Tahiti and now sits at 4 on the back half of 2012 with 5 more events. But remember...Surfer Kelly Slater's wave of success is as big as ever.

Slater is not only the most successful surfer ever (11 world titles), but he's also one of the most accomplished athletes ever. And at 40, he's surfing as well as he ever has.

But this is not likely whats going on inside his genious brain. He's not used to losing early esp at Teahupoo. He is however used to coming from behind and nabbing victories. More than any surfer in History. Here's a look into one of Sports most dominant figures ever.

Surfonomics quantifies the worth of waves

Photo:Eric Luse/SFC - Winner Anthony Tashnick during the finals of Mavericks 2005 surf contest near the Princeton Harbour in Half Moon Bay.

In 2002, a surfer named Chad Nelsen enlisted an economist at Duke University to help put a price tag on a popular surfing spot on Puerto Rico’s northwest coast. Nelsen’s idea was novel: to prove that the waves breaking on the beach constituted a multimillion-dollar asset and persuade the local town to take pains to preserve it.

Real estate developers were after another multimillion-dollar asset: the views from the beach, which would be the selling point for three high-rise condominiums they planned to build.

Surfers and environmentalists feared that the construction at Rincon, the village in Puerto Rico, would change the flow of sediment around the beach and bury a reef that created the surf break. Nelsen sought to show that without the reef, there would be no waves, no surfers and, ultimately, a big drop in tourism dollars....

   

August 2012 is unique: Two full moons, one is BLUE


What is unique about August 2012?

August 2012 features not 1 but 2 full moons. Surf n Sea celebrates with their final Full Moon SUP event of Summer.

31 August, 2012 : The full moon occurs once every 29.5 days. This essentially means that there is one full moon every month. However, as we know, every month but February has at least 28 days in it, which presents the potential for two full moons in a month. August 2012 - is one of these unique months, which will have two full moons.

There was a full moon on August 2nd, and there will be another full moon on August 31st. So those of us whom are superstitious in regards to full moons will have two special days in August of 2012. The term Blue Moon can refer to the second full moon in a given month. When people say "once in a blue moon" they are speaking to the rarity of the occurrence of a second moon happening in the same given month.
