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

Sonoma County Surf Breaks

Surfing isn't the first thing that springs to mind when you look at the Sonoma coast. Large cliffs, rocky coves and deep waters make it a nightmare to get to a wave never mind surf one. Local knowledge is a must in this area as surfable beaches are very few and far between. Salmon Creek is the most well known spot, where most surfers will congregate. Secret spots are hidden all up and down but finding them from the top of the cliffs that line highway 1 will be no easy task. Scope out where you're going first, a surfers leg is high on a Great White Shark's lunch list.
