If they arent doing a live report at your beach, just find the nearest ones, look at the swell data they posted and break it down yourself.... same as usuing the buoys......
    not quite. i check the buoys before i go to sleep and when i get up at 4am to see what the swell is doing. no light for cams and no human reports yet so the buoy is pretty much it.

    Yea i gotta give on to the pain of the people who charter fishing boats and shrimpers etc. not to hate on those who ate 5 min away from the beach that cant read the bouys but i love surfing and i love waking up early to catch an hour or two of surf before work at noon but for me i live 2.5 hours from the beach so once to twice a week ill get up at 330 and be at the beach by 6, stay till 9 then head back to work so maybe 5 miles will make you feel a lil better : D

    Good point. I really only monitor the buoys like over night that if i'm traveling or chasing a big swell. There are hundreds of buoys up and down the coast, you will just need to find some buoys closer to you, or down the coast on a similar beach angle etc... I guess just hope they get back up soon.
