To surf or not to surf?

Categories: Coasts
I'm going to show s3 some clips from Charlestown in Cornwall today. For the first couple of clips, I want students to reason what influences the size and power of the waves, what impact the waves might be having, the colour of the waves at the coast (and a reason for that colour) and how the coastal communities have adapted. I also get to talk about skateboarding here ;)

The other place I want to look at is Bournemouth, a few miles along the coast. I want students to think about the effect of the gentle waves, the reason for the fences at right angles to the beach and the importance of the beach, not just for people but for the landcsape behind it.
