I'm sure Mr SI will be ok with dropping the ads in place of a fee fro service.
It ain't that kind of party up in here.
Remember, there isn't a market for "pay for surf forecast" service. That market has been locked up for 20 years now. This site came about because it's free. I am all about ads to keep a good thing going, but I just hope they are paying him out a very substantial amount of money for the increased ad space, cause this is "in your face" for sure.
P.S. Nice first post bro. Interesting timing and opinion, if you know what I mean. ???
