Tom from United Kingdom
“Wrong tidal port for location. Very serious. Needs amending from Truro to Newquay tides. Concern you've got this wrong as it's in Newquay Bay!

[Editor replies. Dear Tom, we have addressed this problem. There are too many locations to generate tide predictions at every surf break but we now ensure that tide predictions are within 10km of any break. The difference in tide times and heights will be small enough to ignore. For example, Lusty Glaze now shows the tide information for nearby Crantock]”
