Do you like surfing? But do you know what kinds of waves are divided into?
Different classifications of waves
Lip: The top of the wave that "slops" from above when the wave breaks. A large part of the energy of the waves is located in the lips.
Shoulder or Face: The unbroken part of a wave. Surfers glide from rough areas to the full part of the wave, called the "shoulder."
Pocket or Curl: The very steep "concave" part of the shoulder. This is where most of the high-performance manipulation tricks happen. Advanced surfers use this part of the wave to do tricks like fly or "snap" because this part provides a vertical slope, similar to a skateboard slope.
White water: After the wave breaks, it becomes "white water".
Impact Zone: The place where the wave lip falls on flat water. When sitting or paddling to surf, avoid entering this area, where the waves are at their strongest.
Tube or Barrel: Some waves form "cylinders" when they break. Often referred to as the "ultimate surf action", advanced surfers are able to glide and surf, often referred to as tube waves.
Peak: The highest point of the wave, and the first part of the wave to break. When looking at a wave on the horizon, the highest part of the wave is called the "break point". Finding the "break point" is the key to reading and predicting how a wave will break.
