SURFING IRELANDS COLD GIANT WAVE

Three of the best surf watches

Surf watches have become an increasingly important gear item for surfers and wave riders.

In the last ten years, the surf industry has been developing action sports watches that actually measure and forecast tides for thousands of surf spots across the world.


The so-called tide watches indicate the low and high tide times for any particular surf break on the planet, allowing you to know when to go in America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Oceania.

Here are 3 of the best surf watches and tide watches available today.
