so every morning when theres waves i check a few of the reports, and lately ive been having a problem because some of the reports are just dead off on a regular basis. i hate the bs they give when its flat or ankle high and they are like 'wellllll theres a little longboard wave out there' and when its really big like head - overhead+ and they dont even bother to mention that its chopped to ****.. they just say ridable. nonetheless a im grateful that there are reports for me to check.
but does anyone care to rank the reports in order of how accurate they are on average?
(or suggest a better one for me to check)
heres what i think (i guess this is particular to monmouth county, nj)
1. swell info (:D always dead on and reports are changed when conditions change)
2. duke storm (os the whole good but some of the reporters are kinda kooky)
3. surfline buoy readings & cams
4. magic seaweed
5. eastern lines phone report
6. spellbinders phone report
where do you live in monmouth county? i usually just check surfline and this site
if you can get a better report on magic seaweed than by CALLING eastern lines then something is whacked.

i know swellinfo can give all of that butttt i like second opinions nonetheless.
Micah, why has the wind direction indicator been reading N/A for the past month? Velocity is reporting, but direction is not.- Post answer: Gotcha. Thanks Micah.
wind for ocean city, md is being taken from buoy 44009. And, the buoy directional measurements is broken. If this doesn't get fixed, I can switch the current wind to one of the coastal delaware stations.
