Dr. Jess Ponting is a lifelong surfer, the leading academic in sustainable surf tourism research, and founder and Director of the world’s first Center for Surf Research. Jess initially identified that despite the fact that we ride in the world’s most fragile environments, there is not enough research identifying the impacts of surf tourism. He sought to identify sustainability best practices in surf tourism and to provide tools for surf tourism operators to implement these initiatives.
