SURF REPORT
Apart from special waves such as tsunamis, the only thing that produces the waves we see on our coasts is the action of the wind blowing over the sea surface. Waves arriving on a coast can be generated by local wind, in ‘real time’, in which case the waves are called windsea, or they can be the result of a wind that blew over the surface of the ocean thousands of kilometres away, up to several days before, in which case they are termed swell or groundswell.
