    First off, Swellinfo and all the forecasts that it produces are computer generated. That means it's not always going to be perfect. Swellinfo is just trying to give everyone a general idea of what the surf is going to be like.

    So lets say Swellinfo forecasts it to be 5 foot and blue, they are just letting you know theres gonna be something out there thats worth a look. You need to read the waves for yourself. You need to see the waves and examine to see if they're worth going out. No computer can predict that, only you can because you have a different view on the waves then anyone else.

    Don't complain about a free service you use, or the ads that it has. Im still a grom, and I've used lots of forecasting sites, but Swellinfo is the best. I've used it for years and I enjoy it and everyone on the forums.

    Thanks for a great year Swellinfo!

    Micah will be putting Emass in quite the pickle if he does that. He will have to stop taking so many trips, or stop posting. I'll bet you anything he keeps posting and stops flying around all over. Unless of course it mummy and daddys money, then he will continue to post from the airport..

    Don't hate on those spoiled kids! That's the reason there are great deals on CL. They realize that money cant buy skill and they go back to popping pills and living life on their iphone.
