What is the definition of swell? What are the parts of a wave? What the most important surf forecasting terms? How do you name the highest part of a wave?

Surf science has its own expressions. That is why we’ve decided to “translate” some of the most relevant wave terms. Surf forecasting is the art of predicting how the ocean waves will arrive and break at our shores. It’s more efficient than a crystal ball because it truly works.

Surf scientists have been fine-tuning the variables involved in oceanography and meteorology using technological tools, computational models, and advanced mathematical calculations to anticipate our surf session.
