FYI – The water is finally starting to get cold so dust off that 3/2, and if you’re a weak specimen like me, get those booties out too…. As I always say, “I’d rather sweat than shiver”!

It’s definitely been a disappointing start to our winter surf season, but don’t get too down in the dumps just yet, it’s only a matter of time before Mother Nature starts punching the clock and delivering the goods our way. Until then we’ll we’ll have to endure the strong contingency of weekend warriors left over from the summer. Things could be worse… at least the Steelers are looking good!

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET FORECAST – One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.

The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
