When trying to get a forecast the best way is to check the North or South Pacific animation (North for N. swells, etc) to see the storm size and power. Then, to know more exactly when it will hit our coasts go to the CLOSE UP VERSION, so you can see more closely the head wave fronts arriving to a singular area. Check each spot in our wave map explanation/description on home page for Ecuador mainland or Galapagos Is. for best swell direction, etc. And to correlate all this you can also check (best for local spots & free!) and /or BuoyWeather or Wavewatch links below.

Excellent free forecast BEST SO FAR!
