Monterey Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the Monterey Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the Monterey coastline are also listed below.

Monterey Surf Breaks

Monterey holds a wide variety of sand and reef breaks and picks up on good amounts of swell. Moss is renowned for world class waves on its day. Local knowledge really comes into play on this jagged piece of coastline, as although you'd imagine barrel after barrel to be screaming in to most coves/beaches, they are actually quite few and far between as the whole coastlines goes, so living locally is the best way to score the waves we all want, as they do exist! Highway 1 will provide access to most breaks. Spanish Bay is another epic wave on its day which holds some decent sized swell. Willow Creek further south also holds surf several feet over head. There are sneaky breaks up and down that can provide some fantastic surf with plenty of places to park, eat and sleep. If you like taking photo's then this piece of coastline is pretty breathless.
