An image of a curling splash on the Nevada shore of Lake Tahoe. I've walked the Nevada shore of the lake for years during high-wind days looking for the perfect splash spot. A number of factors have to be just right; the depth of the water leading up to the rock, a lack of obstructions in front of the chosen rock and the shape of the rock the wave runs in to. This spot meets all three requirements. The rock is actually undercut so it sends the splash curling backwards.
