Buoy Wave Height Forecast

How this Works

The Offshore Wave Height Forecast is one of our best tools for “breaking down” the incoming swell mix into its individual components. It allows us to see both the forecasted combined swell height (or “CMB” in the legend) and at the same time it also charts the separate swells that make up the combined whole. This forecast chart is extremely interactive and can give you a ton of wave-hunting information if you know what you are looking for.Go here for more information on how this works.

This virtual forecast point is located 150 miles offshore from Salina Cruz in Southern Mexico. Take special notice to quick spikes in wave heights...these are usually caused by strong offshore winds which will create "windswell" moving away from the coast. Our wavehight algorithms take this into account...so you will not see thes in the wave heights tab...but is something to take notice...
