Kudos to Mr. Swellinfo, they have pretty much been spot on since i have become a member, they have only been wrong a couple of times...and thats why they call it forecasting...learn the spots where you surf, i wish the younger generation would have surfed in the early 70s, we didnt have cams, computers, smartphones ect., we had local knowledge and knew how to use it.
Gfooter... ahh yea... the JoeMac days! He was doing it before EVERYBODY else. If he only knew his name's still being brought up in conversations today...
Zach... have faith, brother. The smarter groms today are still learning the tricks of the trade, wanting as bad as we did to score the goods on those rare sneaker swells... or know exactly where to go on that certain combination of wind, swell and tide.
Yup, there kind of like the weatherman. Maybe members can post .?
Members CAN post. On the surf report page....I find that swellinfo is usually pretty reliable within a few days, but when they REALLY mess up, or just naturally mispredict something, I enter my own report on the surf report page. That's why they created that function. Weathers hard to predict and very fickle..
I feel like this has been happening more since sandy... I know theyre out very deep, but is it possible some buoys being pushed out of place could be throwing off the forecasting model? because I know how outer swell manifests on Long island and right now our local buoy is showing...4.3 foot swell as i recall. possibly 1-1.5ft waves currently. and it has been kind of a consistent overforecast for here at least. thoughts?
BTW micah i think you do a fantastic job managing this site, felt it should be said
its just going to be flat forever. if you look at surfline for oc.md its says flat for tomorrow, where as on SI it says its going to hit 5 foot by 12 tomorrow.
look at the even extended forecast as surfline says oc.md 4-6 for next wed/thur, and here is says flat..wtf http://www.surfline.com/surf-forecas...delaware_2148/
