An Idea

Hey Team,
Just a suggestion that I would like to put forward.
On the WAMS page, do you reckon you could jam a tide time plot in there (below and in sync with the timeline, and above the WAMS?)

That would be cool as its good to get an idea of the tide's movement when the swell hits, something basic would be good for quick reference then the user can get into the particulars if it all starts to take shape.

loving the site...

Thanks Yocal. That's not a bad idea, although I'm not sure where we could fit it in.

Also, the WAMS have six-hourly increments, so to sync the tide charts in with them would look a little weird (unless we split all 384 timesteps of the 16 day forecasts into hourly blocks, which might be a weird user experience).

Anyway, I'll have a think about it.

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

I'm thinking moreso of replicating the basic wave-shaped plot on the ADVANCED surf forecast page under Tide Times & Weather, not necessarily depicting tide heights even, just the basic high/low pattern in sync with the timeline graph's 6 hr increments.

Anyways if it's do-able I'd definitely use it rather than flicking back to the forecast page.

Go deeper Taylor, go deeper!

Yeah that's possible I suppose.. we'll see if we can mock something up down the track (just getting through a large backlog of existing things to fix/improve).
