Our names are Ben and Tom and we are electrical engineering students at the University of New South Wales.
We are currently designing an automatic surf competition timer as part of our studies. The device will time surf comp heats (with selectable heat time) and alert competitors of the progression of time via a set of traffic lights and air horns. The whole system will be portable and will be powered by a 12V car battery.
We hope that you might find 5 minutes to fill out this survey, it would be most beneficial to our design. We hope to discover how appealing owning a surf comp timer would be to your club. An existing model on the market can be viewed at http://www.surfingaustralia.com/shop/product.php?id=11, however our design will be reasonably different (and hopefully better) than what you see.
