Humboldt County 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 Humboldt County Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the Humboldt County coastline are also listed below.

Humboldt County Surf Breaks

Humboldt county is one of the few places that never lacks surf, the sad thing is that the surf is often unsurfable. The whole county is open to huge swells but only clean smaller swells tend to create rideable waves. If your heading out on a trip in search to get a wave then Humboldt shouldn't be high on your list, although for the more 'up for a challenge' surfer, the whole coast is constantly pounded with huge surf with ever changing conditions.
