Re: Where did you surf today ?

So much fun, maybe even classed as pumping. Overhead sets, glassy, good banks.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, I am just over 6 ft and it was at least 2 of me so yeah about 15ft, then again who fccckn knows. I certainly haven't got to the bottom where it was breaking today before.

Yeah was pretty raw today, sounds like it was breaking similarly all over Sydney. Some cracking waves but fccckn difficult take offs. Found myself on the ocean floor in about 15-20ft of water after screwing one up.
Measured from the front or from the back? And is this 15-20 foot Iggy scale?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Was the east component in the swell due to some type of refraction around your local reefs? Nulla was about as directional south as ever God it was pathetic here, just about the worst example of straight south swell you could imagine. I reckon Nicks local was one of the few places to work on the NB...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Steve, if you haven't seen the Surfers of Bali vids.

I think Beanie and co are referring to Balangan as a bit soft from vids like this

Soft compared to Ulu or Padang at same size.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I would get the ice and a compression bandage on it early. Can't hurt and will speed up recovery if anything is actually wrong.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fun, plenty of fun. Good banks

Despite that saw two blokes trying to have a scrap over a drop in. Plenty of waves taken off them by the pack as they were arguing.

I'm watching surfing from yesterday. Strider Raspberry Wasilewski just twice mentioned how people have more cubic litres in their boards. Can anyone explain cubic litres to me and how they might improve my surfing?
Are these cubic litres higher performance than regular litres?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Lot of angry blokes in the water today.
One bloke called me a cnut because he wasnt sure which way he should paddle, as he paddled directly towards the peak, to get out of my way when i was paddling for a wave.
Lots of shouting over various blatant drop ins.
Good banks though.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Agree with Shearer here.

And Nick, it wasn't a cheap shot from people calling them sooks. What are professional surfers?

Wouldn't it be professional to take appropriate boards to surf big waves a t Cloudbreak when every forecaster saw it coming?
