Connor from United States
“Great surf. Especially after decent thunder storms. The only bad part about the beach itself is a very small parking lot and if you can't park there, you'll have to pay 15 dollars. Jenness also has flags to represent where you can and can't surf. Surfers and body boarders generally get much better surf than the swimmers area. Which is what I especially like about the beach”

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.
