Awesome Forecasts, Made Simple

Our team has decades of experience in forecasting surf conditions -- we've been doing it since the 1990s. We've studied every component of surf forecasting to determine the optimal approach. Surf Captain's own wave and weather models and advanced scientific techniques provide accurate surf height and wind condition predictions. While our process is complex, our core focus is making an accurate forecast simple for our users. For more info on the Surf Captain forecasts Check Out our FAQ page.
