Surf tourism and sustainable development in Indo-Pacific islands. II. Recreational capacity management and case study



Surf tourism and sustainable development in Indo-Pacific islands. II. Recreational capacity management and case study



Journal of Sustainable Tourism 10(5): 425-442



Recreational capacity is a function of the natural and social environment, the activity concerned, and the management regime. Indo-Pacific surf destinations with cheap and open access and no capacity management have experienced crowding, crime, pollution and price collapses. Many island surf breaks can handle only a few surfers at once because of the shape of the reefs. A crowding factor may be conceptualized as the proportion of waves each surfer is forced to cede to another boardrider.
