What type of ocean floor creates the best type of wave?
It depends on the type of wave you are looking for. If you want intense barreling waves, look for an ocean floor with a steep gradient from deep to shallow. If you are looking for long point breaks, look for a headland at an angle where the waves wrap around it and create an even gradient from shallow to deep. The best is to have a reef or point where the energy converges and then a deep spot next to it.

What kind of way is you looking for, if you want intense barreling waves, you're looking for an ocean for, that's from very deep to shallow, very quickly. So the Steep, gradient creates a wave that rears are very fast and barrels and is very intense. A lot of people don't like these valves though, because the wave rears up so fast, on the other hand, if a lot of people's favorite waves are Long Point Break. So like in Jeffrey's Bay Inn in South Africa, We have the base right hand Point Break in the world. So the, the head land is at the perfect angle, as the waves wrap around the Headland. They sweep into the point and these long lines come in, and it's a fairly even gradient going from shallow to deep the waves break and peel along the rock. That's why it's called the point break. So peels along the Rocks, so it really depends. What kind of way is you looking for, obviously the longer the reef. The the bit, the the better it is. Ideally in any situation. The best is to have a reef or point where the where the energy is converges on and then a deep spot next to it. So deep spark has the channel where the waves don't break so you can ride the waves on the reef and then pull out in the channel, paddle back out of your hair dry and go get another way. So it's always great when there is a safe sewing or Channel."
