    I'm not gonna argue with you about whether the forecast was right or wrong. Nobody will win that one (although I will admit I hate all the Swellinfo bashing). And I'll admit that 90% of the breaks were not working for 90% of the tide cycle. But I will encourage people to either (1) stop the bashing, because you're making yourselves look like suckers knowing there was a fun little wave yesterday if you knew where to find it, or (2) be one of the handful of people who put the effort into seeking out a ridable wave when the buoys are showing 4.3' @ 7 sec. If you missed out on that, your bad.

    i looked before work around 5:30, a few spots in lb and in deal. deal was maybe rideable on a log. buoy was 3.3' @ 6 sec and looked even worse. tide was super low though but i couldn't find a spot worth surfing. w/ the angle that steep, you definitely have to think outside the box but i don't think anything was working that early.

    i got a little bump this morning! I haven't been out in about 1.5 weeks...not worth it in my eyes to fight for knee high dribs against the foam crowd

    The blame is on the GFS weather model, which essentially all weather agencies use. More often then not, it heightens the S/SW wind swells further out in the prediction, and then it becomes more realistic in the shorter term forecast. That is why you see the same trends on different forecasting sites.

    Swellinfo will be working on getting around model biases, but its going to take a while to get there.

    I thought the forecast for yesterday for Delmarva was accurate as can be expected. Maybe 2-3 days out it was looking a little better, then by 24 hours out the forecast knee - thigh and clean short period steep south angle. I surfed yesterday afternoon for an hour or two at a spot that picks up that stuff and it was exactly as forecast, and got a bunch of ok little thigh high waves.

    this is why you need to have other interests beside surfing. flat spells will drive you nuts if you don't.
