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

  1. Head high to a foot overhead sets on exposed west coast reefs. Clean and very hollow for here. Less easterly breeze from Paturau south but just enough NE bump from the 2.5m eastwerly windswell out of Tasman Bay to make it not quite perfect but pretty close. Sunny. Dolphins.

Eyeball Nelson West Coast Surf Reports are sent in by surfers living or working at the Nelson West Coast surf breaks. We don't publish reports from secret spots and reporters send in wave reports from more popular or indicator breaks to help their local surf community. If you are often in Nelson West Coast and want to get involved we can publish your surf reports anonymously or provide free publicity for your business.
