      They claim to use that method (or rather, they claim to measure from the back of the wave, which is functionally the same thing). But really, from the point of view of someone standing on the beach, without accurate wave measurement devices, what makes more sense? To estimate the height based on what you can actually see i.e. the front of the wave from bottom to top? Or to claim that you're using the scientific way by measuring from a point that is completely obscured by what you're actually trying to measure and coming up with a figure that might be technically correct (or wildly off) but bears no resemblance to what is actually in front of you?

        whichever gets you laid the fastest.

          Wave height vs amplitude:

            When people compliment my abilities I just accept the compliment. Being humble is silly, especially when it's just for show.

            Hell, even if you really do feel that you're not that good then it's still just better to accept the compliment.
