    The Timeline Forecast and text forecast is the official Swellinfo forecast for the surf zone.
    The wave maps are open ocean wave heights.

    All are updated 4 times per day, but the wave maps are updated live on the site before the actual forecast, so during the lag of forecast updates, there can be some discrepencies between wave maps and the actual forecast during the lag before the forecast gets updated...
