I use 3 sites.
– Surf-forecast, (tends to exaggerate), wind is only in 5mph increments, like the strength measurement
– Magic Seaweed, like the wind forecasting
– DeepSwell, https://deepswell.com/, tends to be more realistic in wave size, like the simplicity of the forecast, just 2 metrics for the day, a range for the wave size, and a morning wind speed/direction and an afternoon wind speed/direction.
I visit each site in order as listed above to get a feel for the day. I primarily rely on Deep Swell for the final decision to go or not to go. I live 45 – 50miles away, so I must be judicious.
