Edward from United States
“Super consistent break, sometimes approaching 5 star, and very friendly locals! Not your typical destination surf break. All things considered, Covelong point is the best break in the area. A short (50m) to medium (100m) right hander (2' to 7'). Mostly gentle sand bottom, there are some rocks at the take off point, and a few sea snakes. In 10 years never seen any casualties from either! The Covelong Point Surf School is right on the break and offers boards, food, fresh water wash and lodging. Great for beginners, or expats traveling through India. In optimal conditions, the nearby fishing village point break can offer 200m rides with barrels and open face.”

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
