What is the Analysis tab?

This Analysis tab brings together the best of the Regional Forecast and Premium Analysis - subject to regional availability! If you don't see the tab on a spot, we aren't covering the region with this detailed analysis.

What is on the Analysis tab?

  • "Best Bets"
  • 7-day forecast highlights.
  • Swell Height, Swell Period, and Wind Charts
  • Premium Analysis

Best Bet” is intended to give you an edge on things like which part of the next day the surf will be the best or which general areas may see the best surf/conditions. “7 Day Forecast Highlights” will give you a quick summary of what to expect through the rest of the forecast.

The Premium Analysis typically covers a geographical region with a similar wave climate. On this page, the forecast team have the flexibility to speak about anything that will impact the surf over the next week or more, expanding on and scrutinizing the LOTUS data that drives much of Surfline.

You'll find discussion on storm activity, model performance, the best days of surf in the next week, local winds, tides and long-range surf prospects.
