Oh, I understand. understood. I’ll get up …

The two arrived at the sea.

The wind hasn’t blown yet. Have fun before the onshore wind blows.

Certainly a good wave. I’m glad I got up early. Why isn’t the wind blowing in the morning?

I’ll talk about the reason later. First of all, let’s enjoy surfing.

What you can see in this article

On hot summer days, the heat of the sun warms the land rapidly
⇒ An updraft occurs on the land
⇒ The wind blows from the sea to the land.

In the morning, the wind is often weak or offshore.

It’s offshore in the morning and it’s a good wave.

Land is easy to warm, sea is hard to warm

land-is-easy-to-warm-sea-is-hard-to-warm

The sun has risen. The sun will get stronger. The land is easy to warm, and the sea is hard to warm. This is due to the nature of soil and water. The air on land warms up rapidly.

The air warms up and becomes an updraft

An updraft is generated over the land.

Onshore blows as the air pressure drops

onshore-blows-as-the-air-pressure-drops

The air pressure on land drops. Therefore, the sea air is attracted to the land.
Onshore blew.

The shape of the waves got worse because of the onshore blow.

Downdraft over the sea and offshore over the sky

downdraft-over-the-sea-and-offshore-over-the-sky

Over the sea, downdrafts occur. The sky is offshore. In this way, the air circulates.

It was a very hot day today. That’s why Wavalien predicted that he would be onshore.

that’s right. We got up early today so we got on a good wave.

At night it will be offshore again

at-night-it-will-be-offshore-again

At night, it’s the opposite of daytime. The land is easy to get cold, and the sea is hard to get cold.   This is due to the nature of soil and water. The air on land cools rapidly. The air above the sea remains warm. Updrafts occur on the sea and downdrafts occur on land. The air on land was drawn towards the sea and offshore blew.

The offshore blew, so the waves were in better condition.

Summary

On hot summer days, it tends to be onshore.

If you want to get a good wave, I recommend getting up early.

Predict a good wave day. Then go to a surfing spot suitable for beginners. We’ll talk more about it in the article below. ”Waves and surfing spots suitable for beginner practice / wave size / wavelength”
