The distant goal, breaks along the SW coast can be dificult to reach sometimes even with a fwd, walking still is gonna have to be done. The ground can get very sandy, try a trail bike to do your initial exploring.

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.
