    cool, well I'm gonna stand on the beach at 6 am and whine about how it's too big to paddle out and then paddle out at 12 and complain that it's too small.

    MSW is a very popular site. It must be spot on in Europe or something because it sure isn't here. They use the same data that other sites develop forecasts with, the swell model is sh*t though. At least for our neck of the woods

    yeah, the only reason i ever use that site is to check all the historical swell data... although the data isnt 100% accurate, its pretty close and its cool to compare your beach to all the others in the nation/world to see how much swell other guys get (or dont get) each month etc over a 10 year period.... Some places will shock you!

    Look at South Beach forecast on here, 15 foot at 8PM and flat .08 feet at 2AM. I have seen tons of hurricane swell die in a few hours over the last 25 years.

    i think it would make more sense for south beach cause it is on the bottom tip of florida, this having a weird angle as the storm moves rather quickly up the coast. And plus, it looks like the bahamas are blocking most of it.
