Looking for YOUR input!

Hola,
After maintaining the site as is for awhile, I'd like to make a few changes. One was instead of a new topic created by an Admin with 'members' commenting, it is a posting where you can comment through Disquis (which includes Facebook and other social media options) Most of the members are on FB already, and it would be seen across a wider platform.
I'd like to expand the classified section for boards sold, and revamp the photo gallery where those invited can showcase their own galleries.
What ideas do you have to improve DadeCoSurf.com so it meets your needs and matches your interests?

Florida Forecast

Look for rapidly building swell on Tuesday accompanied with increasing winds out of the North-Northwest. The speed and direction of the wind will be dependent on how quickly the trough advances, but there’s a good chance for a good window of surf before the winds really get going. Winds go more NW on Wednesday and begin to lighten. Thursday winds look even better with a more Westerly direction and super light all day. Swell peaks Tuesday afternoon and has some serious staying power, with a gradual decrease through the workweek.

Tuesday: Starts out with head+ high surf, and quickly builds through the day to well-overhead and maybe even double overhead at top spots in Northern Palm Beach County and further North. Most spots will be out of control and closing out with the exception of marquis waves. Winds are forecast to have a good amount of North and be gusting to near 20kts. Side-shore and big for most of the day. Broward and Miami-Dade might see some energy, but much, much smaller (and maybe better winds). If you are in doubt, don’t paddle out.

Wednesday: Solid NE groundswell with NW winds. Find your favorite “big wave” spot and bring a step-up. Could be a pretty classic day for South Florida at the right spots. Swell in the head to overhead+ range fading through the day. Maybe some refracto stuff further south.

Thursday: Swell continues to fade, but should still be plenty of energy to get head+ high waves at the best spots all day. Winds look really good, too. A good day to spread out the crowd and find your own sandbar.

Friday: Still some swell in the waist to chest range, maybe even better at better spots in Central Florida. Winds still should be nice and offshore.

Saturday: Yup, still some waves- especially in Central Florida. Waist high or so. Winds shouldn’t be too bad in the early hours, but will come up out of the North.
