    The original swellcast layout was very limited. I've been reworking things to make it much easier to scale and integrate features on the road map, exercising as much restraint as I can, and keeping it super simple.

    The first of these being (as close as one can get to) live wind readings. Also the home page now displays a national lowdown of sorts, with short forecasts for each major location.

    Really love the look and feel of it. Very smooth and organized.

    The only thing I noticed is that the Y height of the graphs seems a bit excessive considering the max value of the data barely uses up a quarter of it.

    Thanks Marc. Every so often the swell does shoot up to between 5 and +7 metres, in some locations more than others.

    Just stumbled on this the other day when checking the forecast. Great stuff.
    Usually the graphs show swell and wind, but on these smaller graphs I can only see 1 being displayed. Is it a combination of the 2 or just swell?

    Cheers Dylan. The short forecast graphs only show swell height. Perhaps the wind forecast reading could be in white to clarify this maybe?

    I suppose surfers might really just want to know when the swell is up, so maybe it isn't needed? The wind is there on-hover anyway. Looks good!
