UK surf reef 'not producing right waves'


A report into Europe's first artificial surf reef, which is in Boscombe, Dorset, has said that the waves being produced are not the right kind for surfers.

Dr Mark Davidson, from Plymouth University, conducted an independent review which found the reef has created new waves. But the waves are not as consistent as hoped and "challenging" for surfers. Tim Muffett reports.
