Surfing – the waves of the southern coast of England, or the long pipes of Hawaii – is a global passion, a subculture that is accepting and liberating, yet dependent on Mother Nature; the elements are vital in order for a surfing experience to be successful. With beaches and tides changing in a matter of miles, it is important for anybody who’s going to hit the waves to know what the weather is like, and what to expect from a day of surfing.

Surf Line doesn't only offer you the weather forecast and live surf webcams, but also surfing-related news, user-submitted photos and videos, traveling discounts, surfer's gear guides, and their own online store.
