Surfers don't ride open ocean swells though, they ride breaking waves. Different situation entirely. I've daydreamed about catching a breaking gravity wave. I wonder what sort of reef would be required.

You'd definitely need a log.

Dear Readers,

I think the difficulty here for who don't think gravitational radiation transmits energy is that they ignore that Gravitational waves certainly are able to transfer momentum:

One example is black hole recoil[1]. During the merger of binary black holes, the gravitational waves is emitted. And because of the asymmetry of gravitational radiation, the resultant black hole can gain a recoil velocity up to 4000km/s, which is enough to escape the host galaxy. This phenomenon indicated that gravitational waves can also carry momentum as well as energy.

Please check:

How much energy was released by the massive merger, and what was the frequency and wavelength of the gravitational wave? First, we can estimate the energy released by calculating the energy equivalent of the missing mass after the merger. Before the merger, the total mass of both black holes was 36 + 29 solar masses, or approximately 65 solar masses. After the merger, a single black hole with a solar mass of 62 remained. What happened to the missing three solar masses? It was turned into the energy transported by the subsequent gravitational wave throughout the universe. Using Einstein’s famous equation E = mc2, where E is the energy equivalent of the missing mass and c is the speed of light, we can estimate the energy released as gravitational waves. E = mc2 = 3 × (1.989 × 1030kg)(2.99792 × 108m/sec.)2 ≈ 5.4 × 1047 kg m2/sec2 = 5.4 × 1047 joules

Please check:

That waves can not distantly transfer energy that can be converted again into work elsewhere ?

well it suffices to see the heating power of sun light, an electromagnetic wave, and how can be used to cook, to heat steam, to generate electricity.

We use daily microwaves to heat our meals, so it is pretty straight forward that radiation can be transformed in heat and therefore into work.

Thanks for the attention to the thread,

gravitational radiation

What is gravitational radiation? Never heard of it.
Never mind. Found it. It's just a term used to describe the propagation of gravitational waves.

Gravitational Radiation is to gravity what light is to electromagnetism. It is produced when massive bodies accelerate. You can accelerate any body so as to produce such radiation, but due to the feeble strength of gravity, it is entirely undetectable except when produced by intense astrophysical sources such as supernovae, collisions of black holes, etc.

It appears that the angel of light thinks that if it's a wave, you can cook with it.

Electromagnetic waves (and sound waves and water waves) involve the transfer of energy through particles. Particles that can be captured by other things, like a solar sail (or oven,) a microphone, a surfboard.

The particles of gravity waves (gravitons) don't work like that. Gravity waves are a distortion of space time itself. They are not some 3-d wave traveling through space time like light or sound, etc.

That's why I said that to utilize them, you'd have to be in some higher-dimensional existence where gravity waves are palpable - like sound, light and water waves are to us.

All waves exist in unrealized potential before the medium they vibrate even existed. Except Gravity waves.. Gravity waves are a reflection, a reverberation.

The signal of the simulation does not include the signals created by the simulation itself. Therefore Gravity is not a fundamental force.
