If you're heading out to the coast for a surf or if you're going on a specific surfing holiday, you're going to want to know how to read the surf report.
If you're unfamiliar with the surf report, it's basically the weather forecast for the waves. How big the swells are going to be and which direction they're heading, what time the tides will be changing, what the wind speeds will be like and much more.
You're going to get a pretty clear of surf conditions for the day when you check out the surf report.
Knowing how to read the surf report is beneficial for two main purposes, fun and safety - you'll know when to avoid the sea because it's too rough or the waves are no good and you'll know where and when you're going to catch the best waves.
