Waves are movements of the world’s oceans that have existed in the same way since millions of years before mankind ever beheld them. And yet, no matter how many times we watch the waves, their movements never get old and never cease to awe us. Sometimes waves can be gentle and rolling, and calm our troubled heads. Other waves can be crashing and chaotic, and huge! Those waves can drag us into our deaths. Other waves are perfect to ride, whether on a surfboard, bodyboard, or just plan bodies! Whatever your preference of waves, it’s no doubt that waves have fascinated humans since the beginning of our existence and will continue to fascinate us until we are gone again, and there is nothing but water.
