We're experiencing some unusual problems with five Victorian surf reports this morning - and I'm not sure why. Every other state's surf reports - as well as Warrnambool - are completely fine. All surf forecasts - including all Victorian locations - are also fine.
I can also see in the backend that the surf reports are being submitted without any problems, so the issue is on the front end rather than in the database.
The common denominator between the Vic surf report locations that are not working is that they all reference the Port Phillip Heads tides via a feed from Weatherzone (Warrnambool uses a separate tide location to the other Vic locations). I have a feeling this may be related to the problem, possibly triggered by the changeover to Daylight Savings this morning.
Unfortunately tech support is limited on Sundays but we'll do everything we can to restore the service ASAP.
And as soon as I posted this.. the problem fixed itself. Not sure why - will endeavor to find out!
