    Easier said than done for us old guys!

    With a single glance I got the picture as to what was going on, or what the prediction was. Also with a single glance I could read the "Surf" and "Conditions." On the new page when I click on the day I now have THREE scroll bars, one of which I need to use to read Surf and Conditions. I appreciate that you're trying to give us more info with the tide and swell/wind direction, but sometimes less is more. It's a very busy little area you've created there.

    And in my 30+ years of surfing in the mid-Atlantic, we've always referred to the surf as you've had it - ankle, knee, waist, chest, etc. The 1 ft, 2 ft, 3ft designations are meaningless to me. Is it "3-foot OCMD" or 3-foot OBX? Or 3-foot Hawaiian, which for us means DOH?

    Again, all of your efforts are appreciated. Swell Info is an amazing site. Just be careful to not go "New Coke" in doing a hit job on the Green Man.
    Ah, I think I see what you are talking about it now! This is a bug.. not intended to be 3 scroll bars... 1 at max, and usually 0.

    What browser are you using?
    I am seeing the problem in Chrome.

    I have multiple scroll bars in both Safari and Firefox. Obviously I'm on Mac.

    looking really nice micah. itll be tough to let the green men go, but i like the direction this is going. 1 thing i noticed was the lack of tide chart on the "Today" bar. it has it for every day except that one. I dont know if this is a fluke or a mistake. keep it up

    It looks sick, more like the iphone app now but with all the other info there as well. I have to be honest though, I wish you could work the little green men in there somehow that's like my favorite part of Swellinfo!

    What if we had a group paddle out for the green man Would that make everyone feel a little better?
