Four students at the University of California San Diego have created a computer-equipped surfboard in an attempt to design the ultimate surfboard. The surfboard is equipped with an on-board computer and eight velocity sensors, which transfer data to an onshore laptop.

The purpose of the computer-equipped surfboard is to find out the optimal amount of bend with which a surfboard should be designed. The data from this project could very well one day lead to the "perfect" surfboard. Stats for Computerized Surfboards Trending: Older & Chilly
