    Different colored lines in time plot for surf

    Hey Micah, is there any order to the rainbow of colors seen on the line for the surf plot? Sometimes it's red, sometimes purple, sometimes blue...?

    ok, this is one of the more confusing things about Swellinfo and is explained in the <a href="http://www.swellinfo.com/tutorials/tutorials.html">tutorials</a>.

    This is actually going to change in the near future, with a pretty substantial upgrade to the timeline graphs, but here's the explanation.

    The colors on the surf plots, correspond to the dominant swell category. So, on the surfplots, click on "view details" button (bottom left). You will see all of the concurrent swells categorized by color. The color of the timeline graph above matches to the dominant swell in the swell category. Make sense?

    PS. The next upgrade is going to be killer. This will happen sometime in February, maybe within a couple weeks.

    Whoa, neat stuff. I didn't realize you could bring up all the swell energy in different graphs. Thanks
