Alabama Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the Alabama Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the Alabama coastline are also listed below.

Alabama Surf Breaks

Due to Alabama's tiny coast line big hurricane swells or big local wind swells are needed to create a wave here. There is a surfing community here never the less, so on the big swell days it won't hurt to go hunting for a wave with only 80km (50 miles) of coast to explore.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
