Surfing like a pro might get a little easier soon with the world’s most technologically advanced surfboard designed by Pukas and Tecnalia. This hi-tech surfboard tracks elusive surf philosophy and mechanical behavior of surfboards with integrated sensors and hardware like a gyroscope, accelerometer, GPS and compass to track the mechanical performance of the surfboard on water. The unquantified data is then transferred to a computer and applied to the surfboard to improve its technical prowess, and also help surfers in improvising on their techniques. This highly ambitious project will also involve professional surfers at a later date, till then continue your surfing practice.
