Anyone know what's going on with Swellinfo (right now, it's not so swell :o)?

I've been reading the SwellInfo forum posts and nobody seems to know. Lots of theories but no answers.

You would think they would have a pop up explaining what's going on.

SwellInfo is/was my main forecast site. It's not perfect but I really like the way the colored graph shows the swells for the week.

Hopefully if/when it comes back, it will be even better than before.

3 feet, zero wind.....forever-----------clearly, something's wrong

imho swellinfo is only useful for a quick check--the detail and cams on surfline are way better--and magic seaweed is better too, except for the consistent overstatement of wind speed

of course i have surfline pro on a "borrowed" password, so not sure if it's worth the cost

and dont forget ventusky--poke around with that if youve not tried already

so im not crying about whatever's going on at swellinfo

Sunova Creek 8'7"

I never use surf forecasts for wind. There are better sites for that such as the local weather and Ventusky.

I like Swellinfo solely for the swell information which is so easy to see with the graph they use.
