It would be so helpful if a surf report was automatically generated when someone types in "surf report (location)". There is a lot of various website on the web that have surf reports (SurfLine being the most poopular). But there could be information from other reports as well.

@brandonyoungdale great idea! Something like this would definitely need to use a realtime API, so I've changed the type to Spice (since those are the kinda of instant answers that use API's). Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any of the sources you suggested offer API's however a quick search surfaced http://www.spitcast.com/api/docs/ which seems like it could work.

If you run into any trouble feel free to make a pull request (even if the instant answer doesn't work) and explain what problems you're having. Someone will help you out :)
