Forecast for your beach?

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..

Finding smaller surf in Sydney

Start your search for smaller waves at the south end of any beach (except Bondi). Look for somewhere out of the wind. Remember that overcast and cold weather generally keeps the crowds away.
Heavy rain can be a health problem.
For places you may not have thought about see the Sydney Beach Map:
