    So, RI is a tricky area to forecast with all the nooks and grooves, and to make a forecast for the entire region is a little tricky. We could do individual spot forecasts, but really don't like to go that approach.
    But, I was interested, and checked out the Surfline forecast for today. It says 4-5ft, occ 6, which is bigger then the Swellinfo forecast.

    It is a very steep SSW swell. Which means the most exposed southern exposures will see the swell, while the more hidden areas blocked by headlands will not. So, maybe just try to learn which areas do and do not pick up the SSW/SW wind swells.

    To get back to the original question... yea, I've used Surfline Premium... did it for a year, then got rid of it. Maybe it's an East Coast/West Coast thing, I don't know, but it wasn't any more reliable or accurate that SI, or just the free portion of the site that forecasts a day out.

    Not worth it for me.

    Footie players don't surf, they grab each others asses.

    The only thing remotely worth paying for on Surfline is unlimited access to cameras, maybe some of their travel deals...

    Both websites are valuable resources, but they aren't 100% all the time. Depending on where you are located will depend on how accurate the report is. Luckily here in FL the forecasts are generally on point on both websites. Swellinfo is my go-to report, because it's free, easy, and generally accurate, however, I also pay for the premium membership on Surfline, mainly for the HD Cams, but especially for major swell events which they tend to be more accurate on.

    If you know how to combine the best of both sites, you should do ok. But like Micah says, if you live in RI, you really need to know your spots as it's not so cut and dry in that area. Weather is a fickle beast, you can't 100% predict that sh*t, it's like trying to figure out when the economy is going to be good again. Just hang in there, it's part of the game that is surfing. If everybody knew exactly when the waves would be good then it would always be crowded, and never not. Many times i've taken a gamble on a report that was less than promising because I had a hunch that it was being underforecasted and was rewarded with chest - head and clean conditions. Just don't take every report at face value, do your homework my friend, it'll serve you well.

    I find the reports to really only be half the battle... focusing on a few spots and figuring them out helps just as much as any report does. For instance, I live in a town where the sanbars often shift/get ruined/build up, so I'm always hitting random spots to see how the bars are reacting with swells. It seems like after every winter on the east coast the bars change, somewhat, so actually going out to see what's working seems to make this part - the forecasting - make a bit more sense. I don't know about other areas though, and about surfline, everyone I've known on the west coast likes it, but it always seems to underforecast here in the east.

    Micah/Swellinfo: Correct me if I am wrong, but you don't do "manual corrections" on forecast events. Doesnt the data change as the Buoy data changes? I assume you scripting/logic just run if/then/else statements and processed the data accordingly. So, as the ocean changes, the updates should happen somewhat automatically. So, if that is the case, I assume that all you can really do is look at swell events that dont pan out the way the forecast indicated, then look at the degree of swell and many other factors to try and update the data logic behind the forecasts...

    I mean, I stopped my CA site over 5 years ago, but I have a live one built that is aimed right at me on HHI. So based on tides, swells and actual conditions, I go back and manually adjust the code to indicate a more realistic forecast/reading...

    Anyway, the difference between surfline/SI is that twice a day at most spots (Almost all in CA) they physically pay a guy to check the surf and update it each day... So with that being said, that is really the only reason that a lot of their "reports" are spot on for the most part.... But as I can see, I am one of the only guys on here that posts a "post session" surf report for the most part. So, for this community as a whole, we could all do better there... But that leads us into the whole blowing up spots stuff that we have all gone rounds over for years....

    But to do manual updates on forecasts, I dont think anyone really does that. LOLA does what LOLA does, and if parts of Orange County or San Diego get missed by a certain angle that was unpredictable, they later drop that data into the back-end of LOLA for future accuracy.

    Swellinfo is my only hope - all the cams are down from Sandy. SI and some weather details...

    I do miss JoeMac! and Dukestorm, you used to get "eyes on" reports. And great deals on boards being sold.

    Surfline's website HAS always been clunky.
