Good job, confuse the guy, why don't you.
off shore means the wind is blowing off the shore.
on shore means the wind is blowing on the shore.
pretty simple mate.
As to why N and S is where the wind is coming from thats a fair question. but unnecessary. Our system works.
OK. But let's say there is an island just off the coast. There is a wind blowing offshore from the coast but when it gets to the island it is now onshore. How can that be? It's the same wind! Blowing offshore and onshore at the same time!
Oh, this is so very confusing!
If you are on the island its onshore. if you are on the beach looking at the island its offshore.
Its just a local saying.
Not shore about that one.
Well, that's all good and fine. But what if I'm in a boat in between? Would it be onshoure or offshoure then?

Depends which shoreline you are closest too/where you left from/where you are docking her.
You're in the very middle. Looking down into the water.
I'm telling you - it's impossible to surf without a compass
What about "high level" and/or "low level" winds??
Is this significant?? Do they determine whether winds will be onshore, offshore, sideshore, downshore, upshore, quadrilinearshore, rectanguloshore, triangularshore??
Please explain using E=mc2 as a model. I am sooooo confused!!!
Way to bring that 1905 math to the table, O Barry
Well, what else would one use considering the stupidity of the inquiring posts....??
Maybe this thread will help. Lots of good responses.
