North California forecats launched
Central and Northern California forecasts have been launched!
We are still in beta mode here, so please let us know if you have any comments/suggests, or you notice anything off with the web site.
It may take a bit of time for you to become familiar with the Swellinfo.com forecast pages, but once you do, finding all the vital swell and weather info has never been made easier!
Some notes on how to use the west coast forecasts:
The Swellinfo.com forecasts are generalized forecasts for a particular region (not a particular spot forecast). So, when you first go to the santa cruz forecast page, the default text forecast on the left hand side of the page is for south facing breaks. This isn't for Steamer Lane or Pleasure Point, but a generalized forecast for the average south facing breaks. To view the text foreasts for alternate beach facing directions, click the beach direction box above the text forecasts.
The surfplots give a potential surf height for all beach facing directions in an area. So for the Santa Cruz area, for example, this includes SSW, S, and SE facing beaches.
The text forecasts, and surplots are there for guidance, but you will get the most info by viewing the raw swell data. You can click on "swellplots" and/or "view details" on the bottom left of the surf plots to view the swell height, direction, and period for that particular area.
Let us know if you have any thoughts, questions, suggestions, etc...
