Why do some waves crumble and some have tubes?



  1. 0 Votes

    The final shape of a wave is determined by local conditions–what things are like at the beach rather than out in the ocean where the waves are formed. Whether a wave forms a tube or crumbles is a function largely of wind direction. Winds blowing toward the ocean (offshore) create better (tubular) waves, while waves blowing from the ocean (onshore) create crumbly waves.
