Thread: reef

  1. #1

    reef

    Why does reef compared to sand make waves better?
    (artificial/natrual)

    i always wondered how a bunch of sharp weird shapes can detail a wave better then a soft sand floor.

    let me know, if you know.
    thanks!

    sand is like sticking your **** in her mouth, reef ='s your **** in her vag, and a cobblestone right point ='s your **** in her butthole.

    Well, my reasoning for this is that reef is only better because it doesn't shift like sand, and if that reef happens to be well-shaped reef, you get a consistent wave that doesn't close out and can also provide a paddling channel provided the swell is right for the reef. Sand just moves around too much and a spot that would have been perfect yesterday may be a close-out death-shack today... but if you can find those good sandbars on a peaky day, you can get great, intense, albeit usually short rides.

    If it was possible for sand to behave like a reef break it would probably be "groomed" better than a reef. This is assuming you were to compare a reef and and a beach break with equal water levels too.

    This is my personal theory, correct me if I'm wrong.

    yeah im sure for however many good reef breaks there are, there are X amount that arent set up right
