When Surf meets Technology & … Joël de Rosnay

Very insightful French article about the relationship of surf and technology, from an unsuspected origin: Joël de Rosnay, whom, until 2002, was Director of Forecasting and Assessment at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris, where he remains a special adviser. He is presently President of Biotics International, a consulting company specialized in the impact of new technologies on industries. As Olivier Desbiey tells us in his article, it seems Joël de Rosnay was one of the surf’s pioneers in France, having imported the first surfing boards in 1958 (balsa covered with transparent polyester!).

Pour présenter les innovations dans le monde du surf et rendre au mieux compte de notre discussion avec Joël, je découpe sa chaîne de valeur (celle du surf, pas de Joël) en 3 principaux maillons qui peuvent être valables plus généralement pour les activités sportives où les conditions atmosphériques constituent le socle de la pratique: préparation de la session, pratique et revivre la session.
A mon sens, et principalement sur le premier et le dernier maillon, les technologies ont modifiées considérablement les conditions de préparation et de pratique de cette activité.
