Surfers know that the surf can vary drastically from one spot to the next, even if those spots are just a few miles away. This Regional Analysis tab brings together the best of the Regional Forecast and Premium Analysis. Check it out for Best Bets and 7 day forecast highlights.
“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.
Our expert forecasters create the colored boxes to rate AM/PM conditions. The color of the boxes represents how good, bad, or ugly they think the surf will be, based on local winds, tides, other factors and backed by years of experience. Inside those boxes they’ll give a description of current conditions and how things may develop.
Forecasters set the colored condition ratings for the first 4 days of the regional forecast. After that, the ratings are set by our LOTUS model. Note that the further you go out in the forecast, the more likely it is to change.
Below this you’ll see the Advanced Charts where you can select regional information for Swell Height, Swell Period and Wind.
