Wooah, long time no see my friend! How goes it?
It's gray outside
And hot as hell
Heat index 100° at 6am
Maybe the 2 ft wind choppe becomes workable on Sat.
Will try gettin back on here later.
Time to go play in this heat at work
Hot is an understatement. Stay hydrated out there, heat stroke is real!
The insane part is when you realize what you posted above, and then learn that sean collins (founder of surfline), petitioned the g-man to restrict that publicly available data so only he (surfline) could access/utilize it. He literally asked NOAA to privatize their buoy data...what a bastard
OCMD HAS WAVES this morning
I'm steeling myself for Mitchell's report/pics of it was awesome this morning - - and I didn't go
Are the threads that talk about the GRAY forecast being deleted, or am i senile?
Do not look directly in to the grey.
Welcome back lurker...oops, I mean Dawg.
I think they are attempting to consolidate them .. they have it down from what was ~7 (maybe more .. peeps ran out of fingers and such ) to 2 or 3.
I think they haven't had a surf forecaster for a while (a.k.a. Micah), however, the "forecasting" intelligence was built into the code algorithms. The current problem (my humble speculation), is changes to the access / format of the data products. So hopefully they have some software people the can modify the "ingestion" of the data (i.e., the access), and the algorithms will remain intact and perform as usual.
However, you raise a good point, that they will not have anyone inhouse to improve the forecasting. With the wealth of data and the evolution of AI/ML tools, these have the potential to take "surf predict'n" to the next level.
Of course, we all know the folly of relying on one tool, and the value of just going and checking it out with your own eyes.
SI’s algorithms have always been more accurate than the others for me personally.
I use SI for the long term forecast, and use the local buoy for the here and now.
Me too. And the more i think about it iv learned SI. Meaning i know or at least get the creeping suspicion when it's off slightly. Scored plenty of fun sessions when SI is saying maybe knee high but it's waist. Because i know even though the forecast doesn't look great i should check. Think it has somthing to do with the full week forecast so you can see as it changes. Whereas surfline for instance only shows you next day
Ho Lee Fook this place changed!
So, if I get this right, NOAA sold buoy access to the highest bidder?
Buoy pimpin sumbitches.
Ain't nothin sacred any more.
No, they told Surfline to suck it. This happened years ago, like late 80s or early 90s. It’s tax payer funded so it’s publicly available data
