SWELL FORECAST EXPLAINED

First we give the Swell and then the Wind info.
Swell Info
a) Swell direction,
b) the period of the swell in seconds
- the shorter the period, the more it is a short wind chop
9 secs and less = wind chop = choppy small surf
- the longer the period, the more it becomes a ground swell which generates good surf
10 - 13 secs = ground swell plus 2+ Metre = good surf
14 secs and greater = great ground swell plus 3+ Metre = great pumping surf
