VIDEO LESSON

Wind, swell and waves

Learn how swell and waves are created, how this affects the waves we see at the beach.

In this lesson we’re learning about waves. There’s a lot to them, and the more you understand how they’re made up and how they organise themselves, the better prepared you’ll be to swim in them.

It’s always helpful to head to the beach after this lesson to have a look around and match what you’ve learnt, to your local beach.[/vc_column_text][vc_message style=”square” message_box_color=”success”]Too far from the beach? Try a surf cam on coastalwatch.com.[/vc_message][vc_column_text]
