We're a group of passionate surf explorers, with a mission to make surf forecasting personal.

Surfers know their surf spots best. We know what conditions work at what surf spots. And giving us complete control over our surf forecasts, means we can finally put that knowledge to use.

We have teamed up with pro surf explorers Oli Adams and Yannick de Jager for insights. With offshore weather agency Oceanweather for accurate global forecasts. And with da Surf Engine for an extensive public surf spot database.

Together, we’ve created Swell Navigator - a surf forecasting app that is much more personal, has more locally relevant data and more accurate surf forecasts.
