OCEAN CONSULTING

Know before you go

The Surfline team of meteorologists, ocean scientists, data scientists, and surf specialists work regularly with leading athletes, film and television producers, the world's most sophisticated nearshore and offshore ocean and weather industrial companies, and other groups looking to make high-stakes decisions in and near the ocean.

From envelop pushing big wave surfers, to multi-million dollar events, to nine-figure infrastructure and development projects, Surfline judgment and experience continually helps enable success while avoiding catastrophe. The same critical skills we apply to putting the world's best surfers in the world's best waves - as the Official Forecaster role for the World Surf League as well as our role in site selection for the 2020 Olympic Games - are applied to our consulting customers' needs.

With proprietary historical data sets, highly refined proprietary nearshore wave and wind modeling, over 1-million hours of video observations per year, our own global tide model, an unparalleled database of bathymetry and observed conditions from locations around the world, and our unique team of highly skilled meteorologists, PHDs and scientists - if it has to do with ocean waves, tides, wind and/or weather, Surfline simply can't be topped. 

They say you should never turn your back on the ocean - nor should you turn a blind eye.

When you can't leave it up to chance, Surfline will help you Know Before You Go. 

TEAM

Two Ph.Ds. in Oceanography and Ocean Engineering, 8 Masters in Meteorological Science, a US Navy wave-modeling expert, 12 specially trained forecasters, and hundreds of years of ocean observation and prediction combined. The Surfline team provides specialized wave forecasting around the world every day — 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Through climatology, proprietary data, and a deep knowledge of the coastal environment, Surfline can help evaluate locations and dates for any project, whether you are looking for big waves or small waves, clear skies or rain, light breezes or howling winds, small coves or giant bays, palm trees or ancient redwoods.

DATA

LOCATION & DATE SELECTION

Surfline has developed multiple proprietary data sets and models that can be applied to your project. We license our realtime and forecast data via an authenticated API, as well as our live and recorded camera content, to select customers. And our historical dataset is 34 years and growing at 1/2 to 1/16 degree gridded resolution, covering wind direction and speed as well as wave height, direction and period.

Every successful surf or ocean related project needs to rely on the expertise of seasoned professionals within the surf and ocean communities. We can help source talent, safety personnel, a local liaison, content producers or creators - the people who will propel your project to success.
