Otago Surf

Detailed Otago surf forecast maps and the latest eyeball surf report from local surfers in the region. Near-shore swell is shown on the map together with the surf forecast rating for spots in Otago. Find the best places to surf in offshore conditions by selecting the wind option on the forecast map. Windsurfers and kite surfers can also use this option to find more favorable cross-shore conditions in Otago. Our local Wavefinder indicates where some of the best conditions are likely to be found in Otago over the next 7 days. Surf photos from Otago and reviews of the best spots and surfing conditions have been provided by local surfers.

Otago 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 Otago Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the Otago coastline are also listed below.
