      How does it work?

      We have our own super computer creating the full global swell model every six hours. Onto this process we've coupled an image recognition system that spots the biggest swells before you've even checked the charts, and pulls out all the details you need to know.

      What does it do?

      It gives you a heads up, in summary, of all the major storms around the world for the next two weeks and the swells they'll create. If you're a dedicated local you'll get an early warning on anything that's likely to create sizable swell - but even more so if you're a travelling big wave surfer or big wave surfing fan you'll be the first to know when the charts are looking likely to create something special. This is the BETA stage - imagine full swell alerts that respond not just to your local forecast but to the actual storms and swells that create those waves.

      How is it different?

      Your local forecast gives you a huge amount of information. But it misses a range of forecasting subtleties - directional spread, frequency bandwidth and other factors that experienced forecasters generally deduce by tracking back to the swell charts. Having a heads up when a significant storm is in the swell window of your local beach makes this cross-checking easier than ever.

      Why BETA?

      To our knowledge this has never been done before. Although the problem we're trying to solve is fairly obvious the technologies we've needed to knit together are anything but simple. We're tracking storms, but as surfers we're not interested in low pressure for it's own sake, but the swell it creates. With a single storm creating multiple swells breaking this down clearly is a challenge - only you can decide if we're getting it right.
