Swells: Reading the Report

Mastering the 3 conditions to find better waves

On Demand inside The Surf Lab


Confused about surf forecasts?

Not sure what to make of all these numbers, arrows, and graphs?

Join Nick Peterson, founder of the Lazy Surfer app, for this workshop.

You'll learn:

  • Height, period and direction - what does each of these mean and how to use them to find better waves

  • How do we measure these? Buoys 101

  • Bathymetry

  • How to pick a spot based on the swell that’s in the water

  • Wind Swell vs. Ground Swell

Your Surf Guide

Nick Peterson is a perennially intermediate level surfer who, when he’s not surfing, is building the first personalized surf forecasting app - Lazy Surfer. Lazy Surfer helps surfers find the best waves for them by learning what kinds of waves each surfer likes and using that information to suggest the best places and times to surf.
