Can surfers and wave energy coexist?

The question has been raised by the plans to install a “Wave Hub”, which will connect wave energy machines to the mainland, off the North coast of Cornwall. Some surfers say wave power stations will reduce the height of waves in the area and harm the large surfing business that has grown in the area. Surfers Against Sewage, meanwhile, are confident the effects will be minimal and the gains will be worthwhile.
