Wind and water surface

We’ve learnt previously that wind plays a major role in the creation of waves, it also has a role in what the wave looks like as it’s breaking.

The direction the wind is blowing will create different beach and water conditions (some good, some not so good), and knowing this can help you choose the best beach to swim at, at what time, or it can save you a trip to the beach in the first place.

When you’re in an event, understanding which way the wind is blowing over the swim course can help you plan how you navigate your swim, and there are small changes to your technique that will help you swim more efficiently.
