VISCOSITY: A fluid's resistance to flow.

In the Feburary issue of SURFER magazine a man wrote in that temperature of water makes a big enough difference in viscosity that when you are in the water you can feel the differences yourself. On colder days surf is slower and more powerfull due to its "surupy" thickness is what his reasearch told him.

The purpose will be to see if the viscosity difference is enough for humans to feel in the waves?

Using a homemade viscometer the test will be done with different temperatures of ocean water.
