Just as light waves and sound waves will bend when they hit something or change speed – a process called refraction – so do ocean waves. When shallow bathymetry slows down a part of a wave, this causes the waves to refract… This focusing of waves by the Nazaré Canyon helps make the largest surfable waves on the planet.
