the more green on the circle the better the surf. rated by fellow surfers each day. if it's red, it's a pooched day or just crowded.

Not to complicate your simple & pretty design... but isn't what makes a good surf day a little subjective... ie, surf might be firing, but there are a lot of people out. Some people might rate crowded as bad... but if the surf's up, you might not care you just want awesome waves. Is there a way to show more of the quality metrics of what makes it a good / bad day. Wave Size, Tide, # Surfers Out, etc.
@Darius, for sure man. and great point. if the surf is firing but you went out to lowers on a saturday it's probably pretty slammed and with epic surfers...i might rate that "nah." day. but here's the kicker, if you take the time to rate something a "nah" day, it's required to say why. that way you don't send mixed signals. because you can look at the report right here (the rest of the screen is missing obviously but the report is right below that) with the swell size, tide, direction, etc and know whether it's good or not. the green/red rating is based on all reviews in one. does that make sense?
I'm no surfer but I agree what Darius just said. Looking good Dann.
I love this from the "smooovest" vectors to the color palette.
I like! I think the wave outline could benefit from some subtle changes. Like the water in front is typically being drawn off the bottom, not flat, and the back of the wave is less convex than you've depicted.
Nice i love the wave and the green / red combination. But for me the text is a little bit small, and it's too close to each other.
I saw this on IG, I really love this information design
I like where this is going, but I'm not sure there's enough detail for me to use something like this on its own. I get more valuable information from http://www.mhl.nsw.gov.au/htbin/wave_data_plot.com?Location=Sydney .
I'm not going to change my surf plans because of air or sea temp - it's not something I'm concerned with, so I don't really think it needs to be included. And, if I'm surfing often, I know what the temp is going to be like anyway because it changes more gradually.
What effect will time have on these votes - e.g. the onshore starts at 11am but you're still showing votes from the 7am conditions?
I suppose there are some audiences that would like this sort of surf report, but as they progressed they might want something more detailed.
Very cool though, seeing different visualisations for surf reports excites me and is something I love to think about.
Looking good - how about pulling some local bouy data like - 3.5ft @15 sec - http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov - which I could go for right about now :)
I love all the work you've posted for this app.
