How Waves Are Made - Levi G

  • Waves are mainly 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 surface 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.
