I am going to myrtle beach for spring vacation!! So I figured I would talk about the waves I will see on the beach. The waves at the beach are transverse because they move up and down. As the water moves to shore the waves move up and down. People can cause a disturbance in the water distrupting the waves path. The best waves to surf are ones with really high amplitudes. When the ocean is angry the amplitudes are even higher! I can't wait to go observe the waves on my vacation.
