During the last years I have done research on waves as natural, economic and sports resources. In fact that was the name of the first Global Wave Conference held in La Laguna University, Canary Islands, Spain. Waves are a limited resource that can be valued and need to be protected. I have studied different legal strategies for wave protection, in foreign countries such as the United States, Mexico, Chile and Peru. I have also been involved in different projects in the fields of wave rehabilitation and wave creation.
