Isola Rossa Surf Guide

Isola Rossa in Sardinia is an exposed beach and reef break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of rips and rocks.

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.
