  1. #1

    Friday Forecast

    MSW has bumped the swell down to about 2ft and has rated it about 2 stars but Swellinfo still has is at about an avg. of 5 ft and clean all day. What should i trust more so?

    Agreed, I don't trust a forecast til I'm on the beach looking at it. I also like checking weather channel and NOAA to make my own conclusions too. Need to verify what you're seeing on the forecast sites, even though Swellinfo is usually pretty solid.

    I stopped looking at MSW years ago, Swellinfo + Surfline Cams = Win

    the weather reports coming in now for the north east are for a larger than anticipated storm...

    MSW is out of England I believe. They try hard, but they overforecast all the time. I stopped looking at them a few years ago too.

    Much respect to your northerners. I surf north Florida and I think that **** is cold.

    MSW is not very accurate in predicting local conditions along the east coast. As an example, their forecast for MD/Delaware thursday is 3/5 stars while at the same time predicting 30 mile per hour sideshore winds. Garbage.

    Your profile says your from New Jersey. Its looks a lot bigger then 2ft... South Jersey looks like it could be very good.
