Rob Davies, founder of this website, opens an appropriately named bottle of Forecast Cider after a fun session at Tora's Shipwreck right-hander. Much smaller swell than the day before but still some head-high sets in the am tending shoulder high in the afternoon. Light winds from a northerly quarter.

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.
