We've released an upgrade to our surf conditions algorithm to better determine clean, choppy, or fair conditions. We've had plenty of feedback from our users that what they like most about Surf Captain is the easy to use surf timeline. The upgrade today allows for smoother transitions between the clean, choppy, or fair condition color scale.
Here's an example taken from the North Shore, Oahu forecast.
You won't notice a great deal of difference between these two timelines, but you will notice less back and forth changes between conditions around Sunday the 13th. The upgraded approach more appropriately smoothes out the transitions between changing wind conditions.
This is just one small example of our approach to continually improve the Surf Captain forecasts.
