What is LOTUS?

LOTUS is our new forecasting model; the successor of LOLA. This new forecast model combines cutting edge prediction technology with NOAA’s Wavewatch III source code to give you more accurate wave forecasts. We have been working over the past several years to dial-in this new forecast model, and LOTUS aims to set the new standard for accuracy, reliability, and timing across a broader range of swell types and locations.

A spot showing LOTUS has a forecast generated by the model data alone.

Where you see text such as “fair to good” these spots have had a human generated forecast, as well as input from the model data.
