    OK. You're wrong. MSW really does suck. I've used them before multiple trips to California (San Diego, Orange Co., Nor Cal) They have proven less accurate than this site each time.

    I always heard MSW was based out of Europe. I think Surfline is definately not focusing much of it's efforts on the east coast & you need to look a little deeper into their maps where as on swellinfo it's "laid out like that"

    Well thanks for the correction! MSW was what I used when I lived in San Diego since it broke it down by specific locations (as well as surfline). SI is a bit limited in SoCal since it lumps a large amount of areas into single spots ie south and north San Diego. I have never surfed northern California so I can't speak to any experience. Swellinfo is awesome though for the northeast. But back to what the OP said; MSW is certainly improving in this area from their once ridiculous forecasts. I remember when they used to have like 20ft long period swells dropping into 1 ft chop and stupid bs like that.

    SwellInfo is the pretty much the sex when it comes to our area. Surfline...eh. MSW is for sure a big hit in Europe. I can remember posting on their forums, "WTF is with these forecasts? 15 feet @ 20 seconds in NJ? GET REAL" and a bunch of eurobrahs getting ready to crucify me. Apparently msw is spot on over there.

    indeed. In my 1 1/2 years surfing in Ireland I can say its spot on most of the time. Ditto for Portugal. It would be nice to see swellinfo on this side of the Atlantic though.
