What is the

Noosa World Surfing Reserve?

The mission statement of World Surfing Reserves is to “proactively identify, designate and preserve outstanding waves, surf zones and surrounding environments around the world”.

The Save The Waves Coalition, along with key partners like National Surfing Reserves (NSR) Australia and the International Surfing Association (ISA), launched the World Surfing Reserves concept in 2009, and it now serves as a global model for preserving wave breaks and their surrounding areas by recognizing and protecting the key environmental, cultural, economic and community attributes of surfing areas.

Surfonomics

With the assistance of academics of the University of the Sunshine Coast, NWSR aims to make a convincing case of the value of our surfing assets and the benefits they bring to the entire community. While many people who don’t surf already appreciate the intrinsic value of our surf breaks, they may not understand the direct economic benefits that flow from keeping them among the world’s best.
