About Wave Buoys

Wave buoys are the definitive way to know what is actually happening out to sea right now. Wave buoys close to the shore will give a good second check for the actual swell conditions before driving to the beach, and wave buoys some distance from the coast a reliable forward forecast of conditions over the next few hours (depending on distance).

Note that wave buoys can report slightly different metrics from the wave forecast data and can't always be directly compared. UK Wave Buoys

MSW imports live data from thousands of weather stations around the world every few minutes. Most stations are Airports or government facilities, this means that while they might not always be perfectly positioned for your local break they are carefully calibrated and report accurately. Some weather stations report hourly, some twice an hour. Some don't report overnight.

About Weather Station Reports

MSW imports live data from over 6000 weather stations around the world every few minutes. Most stations are Airports or government facilities, this means that while they might not always be perfectly positioned for your local break they are carefully calibrated and report accurately. Some stations report hourly, some twice an hour. Some don't report overnight. We only show stations on the map that have reported in the last hour and a half.

Stations report wind speed but also gusts and any variation in direction, with local winds being so very important to finding ridable waves this should be an important tool in any surfers checklist.
