Waves and swell
The wave and swell report for a site is incompatible with the circle diagram attached to that site. In particular, the swell and swell two on the diagram are typically much less than reported on the outlook bar for that location.
Swell and Wind on the arrows are identical to those in the outlook diagram. Swell 2 is not shown in the outlook diagram.
What is the difference between swell and wave?
Often I see wave height 2 - 3 X bigger than swell height....
See answer to your post here
I just start to use this app, so I have a question.
Why I see on the arrows Wind, Swell and Swell 2 but do not see a Waves?
On you screen we can see - waves bigger then swells... So, it more important to see it.
Or I do not understand something?
Hi, these arrows have been designed mainly for surfers and wind surfers. They are more looking at swells.
You are right, waves are higher than the main swell as they are to some extent the addition of wind waves and swell. You get the information about waves in the table.
@idefix37 Thank you! That makes sense!
