Where are the bulges in the water?

The tidal force causes Earth—and its water—to bulge out on the side closest to the Moon and the side farthest from the Moon. These bulges of water are high tides. As the Earth rotates, your region of Earth passes through both of these bulges each day.

Where are Earth’s tidal bulges located?

A tidal bulge occurs in the oceans on the side of the earth nearest the moon; a second tidal bulge occurs on the far side of the earth. These bulges are high tides. The areas between the tidal bulges experience low tide. Usually two high and two low tides occur each 24 hours and 50 minutes.

Where is the other high tide bulge of ocean water always?

One bulge occurs on the side of the Earth facing the moon. This is the moon’s direct tidal force pulling the ocean toward it. The other bulge occurs on the opposite side of the Earth.

When the ocean bulges what kind of tide is it?

High tide

Does low tide mean the water is out?

At the coast, low tide is the time when the sea is at its lowest level because the tide is out.

Is it better to surf when the tide is going in or out?

Some spots are best when the tide is full on high or low (depending on the spot). However, too high of a tide for most spots will swamp the surf out (fat/slow/mushy), with the waves breaking more onto themselves rather than top to bottom. Too low a tide may drain things out (suck the life out of the swell).
