So great predicts, it's very precise and detailed.

I just want to point an error regarding the tide for spots located near Anglet and Tarnos.
You are using wrongly the data of "VIEUX BOUCAU" whitch is not the same than "BOUCAU".

- VIEUX BOUCAU is located in the North of SEIGNOSSE
- BOUCAU is located near BAYONNE (South of CAPBRETON)

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english

[Editor replies. Thanks Gadjo. I have fixed this]”
