    Swell info had the best swell model for Northern California for a long time and then it just disappeared last summer... anyone know whats going on?

    This is now typical for what I see now for Ocean Beach ... erratic/weird:

    while surfline has something while far from perfect is much much closer to the truth:

    Suspect something changed in how underlying buoy data needs to be accessed or is formatted? Wind is off too though... hmmm

    Look through the forums most active recent threads. You shall find that answer that you seek.

    Cliff Notes Version:
    Forecast has been messed up for a while and they are "working on it".

    I did see all this. What I thought Ι read was that some peoples forecasts were doing better now. So wasn't sure if this was a CA or west coast or US specific problem that is persisting....

    Its an epidemic. It's worse than the Corona virus.

    What is the stress and uncertainty you speak of? Lucid thoughts are for Lucid people
