are what make the surfing world go round...with our surfing waves
there would be no surfing. But you may be wondering where waves come from. Check out informative article such as Where do Waves Come From
to get a better idea of not only where they come from, but what happens to them and causes them to get their shape that make them surfable.
Although it is true that no two waves are the same, it is the surf breaks
that give them their general shape. As you will find out, a gently sloping beach will produce softer waves, whereas an abrupt change from deep water to shallow will produce a heavier wave. There are many types of surf breaks from point breaks, beach breaks, reef/rock, slabs, etc. Every spot has it's own personality so you can enjoy surfing many types of boards including longboards
, high performance boards
or even soft tops
