It’s called an A-Frame, and you’re about to learn all about it.
In this post you’ll learn:
WHAT IS AN A-FRAME WAVE IN SURFING
An A-Frame is a wave that has a defined peak that peels and breaks equally left and right.
On waves like this, the surfer right on the peak can choose which direction they want to surf - with each direction offering up equally good opportunities.

WHY DO SURFERS LOVE THEM SO MUCH
Surfers love these types of waves because they offer up opportunity.
The opportunity to surf on your backhand or forehand, with the wave offering equally good rides either way.
Want to practice your backhand, no stress.
Forehand your preference, sweet as, you’ve got that option too.

Word of warning though, they crowded, very crowded.
