Best most accurate (if there is such a thing) weather and wave information
http://www.windalert.com/spot/1272 (not sure why this won’t directly link to the page. So save this document and then you should be able to copy and paste this link into the address bar and hit enter)
http://www.intellicast.com/Local/Weather.aspx?location=USWI0455 (check hourly and extended.)
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=mlww3 (check just before leaving home in case weatherman wrong)
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/data/Forecasts/FZUS53.KMKX.html (near shore forecast)
http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=LOT&product=GLF&issuedby=LM (off shore forecast)
(this one will give you wave prediction at a spot on the map. If you put your cursor on another place of the map and left click it will give you a prediction for that spot.)
I also like to see how long it has been blowing from one direction. even 5 mph East winds if they have been blowing for 12 hours are trouble.
