    Station Data on Report page is also very nice--single glance tells me all I need to know.
    Thanks.

    Just want to say I appreciate everyone's feedback, good or bad.

    If there is something that really doesn't jive, then we are listening and of course, will modify if it makes sense, but the site has been the same for many years now, so it please give it a little time to get used to the change.

    Probably the biggest change is separating out the report and forecast data. While there is some redundancy, the report is all the info you need to know for today's surf, and obviously, the forecast is looking ahead. We could certainly combine forces, and have it all on one view, but the idea is to separate out the 2 focuses, so to not be overly cluttered with data you are not focusing on.

    Overall, the UI should be much more mobile/tablet friendly. That was the biggest downfall of the old site, that really needed upgraded.

    Mod,

    I have a question and an edit.
    First, my edit. You spell "FORRUMME" wrong on the home page
    Secondly, My avatar shows up on the home page screen, but not on the forrumme page? How do we correct?

    It's been working for me. Could you send me the image, so I can test it out? Could be a file size issue, just a guess.

    Yeah i guess I'll get used to it. I still like the old better with no scrolling. But whatever no big deal.

    BUT! I don't own a computer. Everything is from my phone. When i go to the forum it opens in a new tab. And it's driving me crazy. Old one never did that

    Awesome! Thank you.

    I kind of like the report tab. That info was always there but it was so small i never even looked at it

    Did notice SI choice tread is the one that has the most good comments! More need to scroll is more room for ads.
    Did notice program was copy righted 2017 so already 6 months outdated.

    As far as critique goes, I think the swell chart could be enlarged a bit and the cross sectioned body height lines be made more visible.

    I have to zoom in for both.

    Thanks for the feedback. Your on mobile I take it? This height on the graph could be taller, so that you get a different aspect ratio on mobile versus desktop browsers.

    Last suggestion. On the chart, the non daylight hours are a little on the light side. Making it a slightly darker gray would make it easier to tell the difference

    Yes, exactly. That sounds like the fix. Working off an iPhone.

    Sorry it’s terrible where do I see buoey heights on it. I used to pull that up easy also the wind. We were all talking about this over dinner. The old design was more user friendly

    Buoy data and wind on the report view:

    Thinking of making some tweaks to make it a little easier to view current weather data and forecast together.
