Swimming over waves

Not all waves need to be navigated by diving under them. If a wave hasn’t started breaking, and it’s still full and round, the most efficient way to navigate them is to swim over the top.

In this lesson you will learn how to spot waves you can swim over and the technique for doing so.

Learning outcomes

  • Recognise the type of waves that you can swim over
  • Perform the swimming over waves technique
