In the Colombian Caribbean and Pacific regions there are a variety of beach breaks that could provide epic conditions for
surfing, due to their wave and climate characteristics, which still remain unknown to the surfing community. Nowadays,
surfing sector is one of the largest and fastest leisure growing industries and a quite significant contributor to regional and national
economies around the world, and Colombia should look around to the neighbor countries. The thin line between weather, wave
climate, and surfing practice is highly complex, as wave climate represents both, a priceless resource to be exploited and also an
important limiting factor that poses risks to be managed by the surfing industry and surfers alike. All surfing destinations are
climate-sensitive to an important degree and wave climate has got the main role on travel planning and the travel experience
itself. This research work provides a synopsis of the capacities and needs for weather and climate services in the surfing sector in
Colombia, including up to date and emerging applications of wave and weather climate services by diverse watersports end-users,
and also, a discussion of key knowledge gaps, research and capacity-building needs and alliances that are required to accelerate
the application of wave climate information to manage risks and facilitate successful adaptation to climate change.
