    Nah, I’m good with you. You didn’t make the cut for being off my buddy list. Unless that’s what you want of course, then we can work something out.

    Disagreeing on a man neither one of us will ever meet isn't a deal breaker.

    $95.88 per year. Yeah... not cheap. But the cams alone are almost worth it. Such amazing clarity of waves around the world.

    That and the forecast is about as good as it was here. I’ve had both sites under all swell, or say flat when there’s a bump. I’ve learned that any forecast site/app/whatever is generally going to be off when looking more than a day or two out. Cams are worth it imho

    I use to pay for Surfline, but got tired of their cams locking up all the time and cancelled. I kept their app on my phone. I had free premium service for quite a while till they realized and cut it off. I still have access to 95% their cams, and can see the forecast, report, etc. for FREE.

    The only difference is there are a couple of cameras I can’t look at because it’s premium only, but there is another cam at a spot within walking distance so it’s really not much different.

    It doesn’t let you see a long term forecast but you can see what tomorrow looks like. That’s really all I need. Who cares what it says a week out? It ain’t gonna play out that way almost ever.

    Edit: I also can see the live buoy with multiple swells, tide and wind speed / direction. When you have that, you have all you need for a real time decision.

    I heard a rumor that one of the mods sisters oral capabilities are worth $9.99/month, and it comes with a sweet cam feed. I also heard that propere oral copulations is a prerequisite to becoming a mod on this here surfing chat forumme. I can’t actually confirm either, but I read it on the webs so it’s true in my book

    Maybe its time we, the abandoned, should do some abandoning.

    Proposing a 5 day bouycot to drop their clicks and potentially get the money hungry to take notice. I'll go first...

    I don't think the issues is that they don't want to fix it, its that they don't know how. Micah has washed his hands and they have no way to validate it.
