That forecast is for HMB buoy. The nearshore forecast is no good. Not sure how accurate those are anyway.

it's pretty accurate for storm when it comes from the south.
But yeah, as ramsey said, there is a HUGE difference between the buoy and the beach.
Look just a few lines below: HMB is forecasted for 9kts... :roll:
Kites: 2014 F-One Bandit VII: 12m, 10m and 8m. All pink/blue.
Board: 2014 F-One Spicy & 5'6 Fish.
Harness: Manera Exoharness.
Wetsuit: Underwave Sultan shortleg 4/3.

ironically i've found the HMB buoy to be more accurate for southern spots like Waddell than hmb because it's so far offshore. did anyone ride the south coast yesterday? did it pick up in the afternoon?
