Re: Front shoulder pain.

Yep swvic, just one supraspinatus tear was enough for me to cope with. You have my sympathy.

Re: Front shoulder pain.

I’m at radiology for a scan on the shoulder which is probably pointless. Long established I need surgery, but this time around it was first an X-ray and now it’s an Ultrasound. Probably back very soon for the MRI Clinical notes read; Painful arthritis left shoulder Possible supraspinatus tear I’m s...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had a great surf yesterday arvo. Head high perfection with a bunch of mates from all over the world who I've got to know pretty well over the last 6 years. I was just feeling that I was getting some form back, catching at least my share and everyone letting me do it. Last year after that rotator c...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Looking good this morning, head high swell, glassy, only a couple out. Dead low, guess I'll go out now anyway.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It just gets better and better. Hit the water again at 2pm on my 7'6 this time, just one guy out. 10 wave set as I paddled out. Just got outside and rested for 10 minutes and the next set hit. Well overhead, 50m ride. Next set was bigger, got a great wave, airbourne half way down, thinking I'll see ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuk the surf turned on this morning. I went out at 8am, the tide was still really low. As I paddled out to my usual spot it didn't look so good, head high but sectioning and closing out. Further down though I saw the only other guy out catch a great wave so I paddled down. A massive dugong glided b...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't track the swell sources duck, that's what computers are for, I just look at the predictions. And I look at the breaks half a dozen times a day anyway. Swell and wind are usually a given most of the year, the wet season needs a bit more attention though, and during the dry too much swell is m...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Early morning looked good, small swell, glassy conditions, no-one out. As I paddled out the wind swung onshore, within 15 minutes it was crap. Paddled in. In the afternoon the swell, unforecast, picked up, regular overhead sets, some head and a half, rare doubles. Offshore and sunny, a dozen or so o...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed for nearly 4 hours today, nice conditions, just a mate and I. There was a long time between sets, most only shoulder high, a few bigger. The offshore was too light to hold the faces up, so lots of short frustrating rides. We surfed it as the tide dropped from about 6' to 6".

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had to look that up. The Supermoon on November 14, 2016, was the closest since January 26, 1948. The next time a Full Moon will come even closer to Earth is on November 25, 2034 (dates based on UTC time). Super Full Moon also looks about 30% brighter than a Micro Full Moon and about 16% brighter t...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Offshores, sun and swell today, all day, and more to come. Very low tide this morning with a long period swell. Only a few out, as it's a long period swell there's long waits between sets.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

There's three major take-off zones spread over 600m. It's doesn't really work until it's overhead (the bigger the better), the swell is from a particular direction, and the offshore is blowing. Lots of closeouts, it sections really, really fast, every move, and your line, has to be focused on gettin...

They seem to mainly cover the Canggu area with less frequent forays just about anywhere else in Bali.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

At least a decent period swell from a good direction - 19s SSW - though small, is supposed to arrive late morning. For the week I've been here it's been 6-10s from 3 different directions and wind affected.

Swell energy goes from the last week's 150-250kJ to 400-900kJ for the next week.
