    reports

    so every morning when theres waves i check a few of the reports, and lately ive been having a problem because some of the reports are just dead off on a regular basis. i hate the bs they give when its flat or ankle high and they are like 'wellllll theres a little longboard wave out there' and when its really big like head - overhead+ and they dont even bother to mention that its chopped to ****.. they just say ridable. nonetheless a im grateful that there are reports for me to check.

    but does anyone care to rank the reports in order of how accurate they are on average?
    (or suggest a better one for me to check)

    heres what i think (i guess this is particular to monmouth county, nj)

    1. swell info ( always dead on and reports are changed when conditions change)
    2. duke storm (os the whole good but some of the reporters are kinda kooky)
    3. surfline buoy readings & cams
    4. magic seaweed
    5. eastern lines phone report
    6. spellbinders phone report
    7. wetsand.com

    if you can get a better report on magic seaweed than by CALLING eastern lines then something is whacked.

    swellinfo (obviously)
    surfersupplies.com (ocnj)
    buoyweather.com (size/period/direction)
    weather.com (hour to hour wind dir/speed)

    i know swellinfo can give all of that butttt i like second opinions nonetheless.

    Just curious

    Micah, why has the wind direction indicator been reading N/A for the past month? Velocity is reporting, but direction is not.- Post answer: Gotcha. Thanks Micah.

    wind for ocean city, md is being taken from buoy 44009. And, the buoy directional measurements is broken. If this doesn't get fixed, I can switch the current wind to one of the coastal delaware stations.
