Yes I remember the days I have the noaa radio next to my bed and used to lisen to it as I drifted off every night. I still use my years to make my own call A few miles north or south Can make a big difference some day . But I also remember the days of driving to the beach just to drive back home dry, Since I have found this sight I can say I catch waves more then before and have not came home dry in 2 years, Caught many days I would not have thought to go , As swellinfo looks a bigger pic then I do or have done , Calling swells that come up from the south when the weather making the waves never affects us same thing with north swells , I big thanks to you guy You make my life happier
