You don't have to hold a degree in meteorology to be able to use the app (but if you want to get into the details it's all in there). Below you will find a guide telling you how to read our forecast.
Alarm: Tells you when the conditions for the alarms will be met.
Wave height: The size of the wave at the beach. A good beginner size is normally 0,5-1m (2-3ft). Switch forecast source to get a complete picture of what's on offer.
Swell height and direction: Wave height without swell means bumpy wind waves. It is important that the swell is hitting the beach so look carefully at the direction arrow.
Wave period: Seconds between the waves. Above 12 is great.
Wind strength and direction: Look for calm winds below 5m/s (10kts / 18kph) or winds blowing towards the waves (offshore winds).
Tide: Low and high tide values are compared to the mean sea level. Some spots are only surfable at a specific tide, for others, tide is of no importance. Always ask a local for tips if you are surfing at a new place.
Weather conditions: Tells you what wetsuit to bring.
