Engineers are nearing the completion of the most advanced artificial reef in the world off the coast of Boscombe, England, a popular surfing destination. The reef is designed to enhance Boscombe’s surf, acting as a ramp to push the waves upward, doubling their size and improving their shape.

This will be the fourth artificial surf reef in the world, and environmentalists say it should actually boost the health of marine life by providing another habitat to the ecosystem. Tourism officials in Boscombe hope the reef will turn their town into a world-class surf destination.
