Looking for a modern, simple and easy to read surf report website? Well… you might be pleased to hear that we’ve just stumbled upon a new surf and wind forecast site named SwellCast.
The site has been developed by a web developer in Perth who is a keen surfer himself and just could not stand the boring looking weather and surf reports available on the net. We don’t blame him… it certainly was time for a change.
Swellcast currently features australian locations only and is planning to cover some international surfing spots in the near future.
The swell data is updated every 6 hours and also includes live wind readings updated every 30 minutes, which is a pretty handy thing as we believe.
An iPhone and iPad App is also available which can be purchased on the iTunes website. The price currently is $1.99.
Another feature that will be added to the site is a customisable surf alert where you can set your specific conditions, like wind direction, swell hight & swell period and will receive an alert only when your conditions are met.
So, next time you are planning a trip to the Gold Coast and don’t konw what the surf will be like, check the Gold Coast surf report on Swellcast and know beforehand what to expect.
