When this girl can’t surf, she surfs…

…the web looking for some good surfing websites.  First, there’s my favorite surf forecast: swellinfo.com.  It’s great for predicting the waves around here, and I love the little graph that tells you exactly when the waves should be best.  Pretty accurate from what I’ve seen.

I’m also a fan of the webcams at the Sunglow Pier.  They’re perched on both the north and south sides of the pier so I can get a pretty good idea of the current conditions fairly close to home.  Of course, if I check it at work and the waves look good (not that I’d do that…), it can make for a long day of wavedreaming when I’m supposed to be working.

I haven’t spent nearly enough time on the surf gear sites.  I found Essential Surf early on, and have made a few purchases over the years.  Of course, there’s Craigslist with their lists of used boards to consider, and YouTube with all the great surf videos.

What are some of your favorites?
