What weather service to get best condition information?

What weather service do you use to get the best wave/condition forecast?

    By land sailflow.com and buoyweather.com. When at sea XM weather on my garmin system. About $600 per year plan but worth every penny if you make long runs like I do

    BTW both sail and buoy allow you to set your report for the area you fish. My forecasts are set for conditions 60plus miles off shore where I actually fish. Nearshore reports are useless to me. I also notice that both of them typically understate wave heights when calling for 4 ft or more. I always add 50 percent safety to heights they predict that day. Got stuck in 12 ft seas when they called for 6-8. Wasn't happy. Long ride back

    Thanks Haggy. We use XM on the water too. I'll bookmark those sites.
