Looking for Waves
Dear readers: I’m looking for waves.
Not giant, 15 foot tall surfer waves, and not small, baby-friendly waves. I’m looking for decent waves that break relatively close to shore (deep water terrifies the crap out of me) in water that isn’t frigid. I’d prefer water clear enough that I can at least see my hand in front of my face, but that one is negotiable.
When I was a kid, I remember going to the beach and playing in the waves for hours, but it seems like every beach I’ve been to in my adult life has had truly pathetic waves. I don’t surf (though I’d love to learn how someday), but I love to play in waves, and it seems that the waves that make for good conditions are surprisingly difficult to find. Jindo, the island I lived on in South Korea, had six beaches, but not a single one of them had waves more than two feet high. I was quite disappointed.
This is where you all come in. I’d love to hear any recommendations of great beaches you all have visited. I’m specifically looking for beaches with the aforementioned conditions, but if you have a truly spectacular beach that is awesome for some other reason, I’d love to hear about that too.
