this book is very handy for the would be forecaster. it explains everything you need to know to enable you to be able to read the skies and the charts! only one gripe though - the diagrams and charts are a bit hard to read as they aren't in colour but you can easily go online to see the same style of charts and do your interpretation of them there!!

Incredibly informative! 26 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was always curious as to how to make surf forecasts, and with this book it was simple. The author goes into enough detail so that you know the variables involved, but doesn't get into boring details that can seem overwhelming. Instead, there are some simple calculations and explanations that make it easy for anyone to learn how to create their own surf forecasts, and learn how to estimate wind among other things. I found the book easy to read, informative, and well structured.

Simple, and accurate 5 Jan 2006
By Rocksurf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been reading the WetSand WaveCast reports for years, back when Nathan Cool first started WaveCast. I knew some of the basics of forecasting, but never realized it could be done so easily. This book shows how forecasting surf for any location can be done with some simple calculations and models you can get for free on the web. I'd give this book ten toes over the nose. Definitely worth every penny.

Simple, useful tool 19 April 2008
By Photog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a simple to read book that has enough information to get the job done. Very quick to go through and create surf forecasts using free data, such as models that you can access on the web. Formulas are simplified, and accurate enough to gauge incoming swells, size, arrival times, etc. Graphics are a bit grainy, and URLs are a bit outdated (book was published in 2004). Overall though, a good tool for the price.
Great all around book 4 Mar 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great book if you are into the technical bits and pieces of surfing.
Some parts are dull and boring, but most is very interesting.

Personally I found the earlier parts of the book better than the later.
