if you want to blame a site for false forecasting go to magic seaweed. their long range forecast is always at least double the actual swell height. i remember last year they were calling earl 15 feet at one point
and by the way i often find surfline's forecast to be extremely vague for most new jersey spots, most of which don't even have a forecast. swellinfo provides a detailed, comprehensive forecast that in my opinion, is always just as accurate if not more than surfline's
Hey cant beat free and so what if they are off sometimes... They save me lots off gas money!!!!! plus there are cams every where you can check at day break. If you know how to search and find them... Also try using three or four surf forcasting pages that are free.. There are plenty of them and if you cant figure out between them which days to head to the beach shame on you and better for me less crowds in the water!!!!!!
