    People seem to only remember the times when it over-predicts in the long range, where as the opposite occurs as well, and sometimes its pretty darn consistent the entire 7 days.

    follow the locals...

    anything two + days out is going to change since it's predicted, paddled out on "red days" still had fun as long as the winds cooperated, best bet is always personally check your spots.

    One thing I've learned from surfing (and still do) is oceanography / meteorology part time

    what a surprise, mondays swell goes from an over head combo swell, to flat.

    Just my opinion, but iam surprised how accurate it can be you gotta keep in mind it's just a guide. No way an exact science, especially that far in advance.

    They often aren't predicting any kind of swell while the European model shows a storm possibly brewing 5-7 days in advance while the gfs shows nothing...Iam assuming swell info mainly uses the gfs.

    Great, KB, great. Coupla very good days (nothing epic but just good long lefts & rights in tropical waters), coupla average days & one blown out, washing machine day. Lotta fun in the water, good healthy food & overall always worth making the trek.

    Ahhh but Surfers Suuuuplies is all gung ho for next week............

    Ahh man, I love the sound of that guy's voice. I call that number 4 times a week.........ever since 1987......Sometimes I disrobe before hand.......

    I wonder what Mr. Swellinfo Guy's voice is like............He should do a recorded Delaware surf report.....I'd call every night. No, really, I would. Phone recorded surf reports are a part of east coast nostalgia that should never die. Most of the young kids on here don't even know........They don't even know......they use the computer exclusively........THAT IS WRONG !!!! CALL THE RECORED SURF REPORT......IT'S SO SEXY !!!!! TAKE YOUR PANTS OFF !!!!

    mannn, i remember calling the corolla surfshop report on trips down south. My dad told me about the surfer supply ones from back in his day and encouraged me to check our "vacation" spots while we were there.
