Who has never felt the power of a wave? A wave that moves you up and down, knocks you over or carries you to surf. It is the waves’ energy that makes this possible, energy that is expressed in their motion and that was created by the wind that stirs the water. If we manage to bring all the forces that act on a surfboard into balance, we can keep the board on the water surface and let the wave carry us forward – while we use our body weight to control the direction and speed of the board.
But waves can do so much more. What this is, is the subject of our current exhibition in focusTerra: Waves – Dive in!
