While we have been collecting surfing websites we were amazed at the global reach for surfing forecasts. It is hard to find a place that doesn’t have a surf forecast.
Check out your beach’s forecast (or forecasts, there is usually more than one) by:
- going to the Search Surfing Sites.
- typing in the name of your beach
- on the results page clicking “forecasts”
BTW, we don’t store any of the information entered in the search page, so don’t worry about giving away your secret spot..
We have collected some differing views of surf forecasts.
