Why do some beaches have bigger breaks than others?



  1. 0 Votes

    Wave breaks have to do with not only the waters interaction with wind (how far and fast it has been pushes along) but also with the incline and depth of the sea floor. So depending on the beach, the bathymetry might be a bit different, which is why you get different types of breaks at different locations. This pic may help visualise it.
