outer limit of the breaker -zone is called the [[ Breaker line]]. However, the instantaneous width of the surf-zone varies with the instantaneous wave conditions. In this context we define the surf-zone as the zone valid for the yearly wave climate defined by the significant wave height H< sub>S,12h/ y</sub> , which is the wave exceeded 12 hours per year. |+|
|−|The width of the breaker/surf-zone can thus be defined as the width of the zone within which H<sub>S,12h/y</sub> breaks. The breaker/surf-zone is somewhat narrower than the littoral zone. It is evaluated that 80 to 90% of the yearly littoral transport takes place within the breaker or surf-zone. |+|

Definition of Breaker zone:
The zone within which waves approaching the coastline commence
breaking (typically in water depths of between 5 and 10 metres).
This is the common definition for Breaker zone, other definitions can be discussed in the article
- The breaker zone is a subset of the surf zone.
