Artist's Description

Boscombe Overstrand Panorama

Number of views as of 13th April 2017 = 4150.

A couple of miles east of Bournemouth, Boscombe is the site of Bournemouth’s new artificial surf reef, unique in Europe and one of only 4 in the world, the others being Narrowneck, Queensland; Cables, Western Australia and Mt.Maunganui, New Zealand.

The submerged reef occupies approximately one hectare (the size of a football pitch) and is 225 metres from the shoreline. The reef mimics the effects of a natural reef and is built from large geo-textile bags filled with sand.

The Boscombe Overstrand building (centre shot) was designed in 1958, but has recently been transformed into a complex of ‘surf pods’, chic but not cheap beach accommodation overlooking the reef.

The Honeycombe Chine development above and to the right of the Overstrand is a new development of 170 seafront flats also overlooking the reef.

Oh and by the way – there was no surf today!! A few days of close to zero temperatures seem to have made Boscombe beach a surfer free zone.

Best viewed larger.

Date: 20th December 2009.
