Research Document - Waves around the Pier

1908: a stormy end to a stormy year in which suffragette Christabel Pankhurst had caused a riot in Wellington Square.

The waves at Hastings beach are highest at high tide and in storm conditions can be up to three meters high. Typically, however waves are much lower, less than a metre in height from crest to trough. The Sea is constantly moving and waves represent the dispersal of energy through the whole body of the sea. Each wave has a crest at the top and a trough at the bottom and the height between them is called the wavelength.
