My go-to app for surf forecasting in RI

There are obviously a lot of sites and apps for surf forecasting in Rhode Island, but none of them have what this one does. Loads of data perfectly arranged in a simple user interface. It had everything I need and nothing I don't. Simple and effective. It's the first and last place I check for surf forecasting in RI.
