    Micah Sklut hasn't owned SI for years, podner. Your outrage is strangely placed.

    Micah created and customized the system, then sold the system. The system was designed by an east coast surfer. So what I wrote is accurate.

    next.

    Fun fact, before Swellinfo there was this...his forecasts were really good because he was just forecasting for Delmarva, and it wasnt automated like Swellinfo...it was an actual daily custom surf forecast in narrative form. Back around 2000-2002 this was the place to be if you surfed on Delmarva.

    In my experience, Magic Sea Weed has been the most accurate. Last summer when I went to Buffalo, it predicted a 2-foot swell on Lake Erie 4 days in advance and it was spot on! No other app predicted it correctly.

    That was Delsurf.com that had the forum get-togethers. Micah had nothing to do with Del Surf. This was DelawareSurf.com that Micah ran.

    Remember the old Malibus forum? I still miss that. Every crusty OCMD local was on it, and some of the threads were pure gold. The moderator, Chris V, was a seriously good local surfer who was out on every swell, so there was no hiding behind a keyboard for him!

    So, what happened to the Delsurf, Delawaresurf and Malibus sites and forums?

    Why did they "die"?

    Pretty much the same as here....
    Good 10 year+ run, started out with 50 or more regular posters so if something was going on, people were actively chatting about it. There was a daily surf report/forecast on each one that eventually wasn't being updated. Dwindled down to the same couple dozen old heads talking about the same things, and the younger surfers who might keep things interesting were just using IG so never any fresh blood. Got stale.

    Who's up for a class action lawsuit? I paid for this app. Why the hell can't they fix this?

    This is the only wave forecasting tool you should ever need. Learn how to use it.
