spit, spitter


Compressed aerated water that blasts out horizontally from the mouth of a hollow wave. As the ceiling and walls of the wave's tubing interior collapse, a bellows effect is created and for two or three seconds a mixture of air and water are funneled out of the tube opening. If a surf break has spitting waves with good form, it's a tuberiding day. Pipeline and Teahupoo, two of the world's best-known tuberidingĀ breaks, both spit regularly and prodigiously.

The amount of spit isn't so much a fun...
