Re:wave types, declarations? - 2011/09/01 22:47 First - it's not the wave type You're questioning but the coastral characteristics. As a beginner You should only look for "Beach Break" that normally means easy access and safe for beginners, or "Sand Bottom" spots to give You a more soft landing when touching the ground.
Then, while improving Your skills, the other types define by themselves.
