Surf Years Calculator

This calculator helps to produce a numerical value of lifetime surf exposure called Surf Years. A surf year (1 SY) is defined as 5 hours spent in the water surfing every week for one year.

People who surf often vary their surfing habits over the years which can make it difficult to create a surf year score. This surf year calculator simplifies that task. You can enter up to 3 different habits for everyday surfing and surf trip exposure, respectively.

Ultimately you can use the calculated surf exposure to individualise your personal risk score for surfing related diseases, like surfer’s ear.
