  Surfing studies hit Australia
Updated 18 September 2002, 17.40

Do you love surfing so much that you'd want to study it?

Well, an Australian university is offering just that - degrees and diplomas in surfing. Way cool dude!

  Click here to find out more about extreme sports.

But the Southern Cross University insist that the courses aren't for slackers and beach-bums.

The course covers everything from surf-event management, marketing and public relations.

Booming industry

This could lead to job as promoters, event managers and coaches for Australia's booming surfing industry.

About 30 students are expected to enrol for the courses in January and will be based on the border between New South Wales and Queensland, which is near some of the best surfing beaches in the world.
