I've noticed the same the past couple days...buouy's at 6+ feet and there's nothing going on, I think there's too much west in the swell for any actual waves to be showing up. I have noticed all throughout the fall if anything the days I was out seemed underforecast or spot on(been using the spot on function to contribute). I think the glich is with these swells that have a lot of west in them...that being said, like any other weather forecast there are variables that are subject to change and I'm overall pretty happy with the job SI does.
I don't mind so much. I wouldn't mind a north west swell report six days out just to see that nice green picture of something to look forward to. I'm very happy with s.I. just killing time till my under ground wave generator's finished
I'll take a look at the south facing breaks forecast, which is the default Rhode Island forecast.
Maybe, we should do away with the south facing forecast.
South facing forecast is useful, please dont get rid of it. IMO when the forecast is for clean waves (green) its accurate. But when the forecast is for poor conditions, it can be off. Comparing cam to forecast, i'd say its about 70% accurate.

I agree, I personally spend as much time at south facing breaks as I do spots with more easterly exposure. Plus the RI forecast has the option to switch from south facing to east facing. Please keep the south facing forecast.
