The explanation of the mechanism by which dolphins are able to ride bow waves of ships, or natural surf and wind-generated waves, has stimulated much discussion and controversy. Since an excellent summary of previous research on the wave-riding problem has been given by Fejer and Backus, only a few remarks by way of review will be given here.
