Boscombe Barrel 

After a long summer of waiting, Europe's first artificial surf reef has started to be laid at Boscombe/Southbourne, just east of Bournemouth on England's south coast. A 45 minute drive west of Bournemouth takes you to Weymouth/Portland, which is to be the sailing venue fot the 2012 Olympics.

The Boscombe reef will be the world's fourth artificial reef and is designed to double the size of waves. It is hoped that when it is finished in October, the reef will produce perfect 70 metre barrels; surfing paradise.
