    surfline is crap

    I hate how surfline is practically a shortboard only website. They almost
    have nothing other than the shorboard style. I really wish they would mix it up a bit more, especially considering they're considered the leading website for surfing.

    Surfline's premium forecasting service is a valuable tool, the LOLA dashboard, the near shore model, etc. The video and news coverage... is inspired by ASP events, freak spots like ships, mavs, and mex pipeline. Their videos are about hell drops and big airs. Things are just at a higher adrenaline level than longboarding. If Joel Tudor is featured, he is on an egg or a fish, if Laird is featured, he is behind a ski at jaws.

    Surfline has been around for a long time. I can remember when they use to have surf report phone line. Remember those surf report phone lines? Does anyone still call a surf report? If so, that would be pretty damn cool.

    When I used to live in Jax Beach, FL Sunrise surf shop still had a report hot line. This old fella who always takes a morning swim at 6 am did the report every day, and did 2-3 updates depending on swell conditions. I thought it was pretty awesome. ----> 904-241-0933

    I'm surprised with how many shops are in here they don't have any hotlines.

South bay beaches, air whatever it was, water temp whatever it was. THen surf conditions.....
