* Waves are a product of the wind.
*The best waves for surfing are the result of the interaction of winds on the surface of the ocean, far away from the coast.
*Wind is the first step in the formation of surf able waves.
*Local shore winds can also produce waves, but they can also destroy the quality of the breaking waves.
*Onshore winds are typically known for creating choppy and bumpy waves because their effect is added to the direction of the wave.
