The Wave Power Index is a visual display for wave power. The favorable wave directions are from the North-East, East and South-East. A favorable mean wave direction(MWD) displays as purple on the chart. The baseline for our index is: A swell that has the power to carry surfer on the most common board types for a minimum of 150ft or a ten second ride. This tool works as a short term, 1.5hr forecast to help determine if a trip to the beach is worthwhile.
We are focused on wave height and wave period combinations that create a rideable wave (at low tide) for most breaks from Cocoa Beach to Sebastian Inlet.
