Just wondering what people find most accurate?
Previously used swell maps. But if there is a better more accurate tool out there would be great.

Not wrong, lived there for 9 years... pretty sure it rains less here in Rotorua lol.

I'm in Waipu Cove and I use Swell Map Surf, Windy Pro and have just started with MeMeteo. I check all three and it gives me a pretty good picture even up to 4 or 5 days out. On the day I also use Windows2. ( one on the east side of the house and one on the west)

I use SwellMap as a starting point, then cross check with Windy, especially if it's a bit borderline. Have to say that Windy is generally more accurate.
