Surf Reports by stokereport


20

guys, a couple of years ago i had an idea for a site where people could share their love for surfing, by exchanging reports and articles. i created stokereport.com with a tagline of "share the love"

i wanted a site that was biased toward the positive, since so much of our daily interaction with each other, especially in the water, is biased the other way.

We've got quite a few new users on the site submitting awesome content. Thanks! Please remember to submit a rant if you're not reporting on conditions. There is a link for this at the bottom of every page.

StokeReporters, we've just added a new feature. Comment voting. The main motivation for this is to allow you to vote down the troll comments that we see from time to time on StokeReport. The voting gets factored into a karma algoritm that limits the troll's ability to continue to comment on the site.

2009 was a good year for rants. StokeReport readers submitted over 800 in total. I've picked a selection of my favorites. Drumroll please for the Top 21 Rants of 2009.

You may have noticed that we're testing a new feature on the Ocean beach page: A new high resolution picture of the ###### of Ocean Beach that updates every minute during daylight hours. Take a look and let us know what you think.

It looks like this storm has taken the NOAA SF Buoy out of action. Thankfully we switched to CDIP for all our main page graphs and information, but you may notice wonky looking wind graphs on the ocean beach page.

The coastal wind sensor is currently down, hence the "?" in the overview panel. Hopefully it will be back online soon.

Rant - CDIP 142

We've changed the buoy information that is featured on the front page graph. It used to show the NOAA Station 46026 located 18 miles west of San Francisco. It now shows data from the CDIP 142 buoy, located approximately 4 miles southwest of the Pt. Bonita lighthouse.

The data should be better. Let us know what you think. We've also cleaned up the swell prediction algorithms that show the two day prediction on the graph. It should be much more accurate now.
