Margaret River forecast for today: swell 23' at 16s, 25,000 kJ

The Ulus swell last year was 17,000kJ, so around 50% more powerful

There's far worse places than Kupang to hang out waiting for a plane though.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Just about every long-timer I met in Roti had been to Vanimo at some time or other. In general, they liked it, but none of them went back. Which doesn't mean its bad, just not as good as Roti (which, now that I don't go there any more, I can say is pretty awesome) Its an easy journey from Kupang, an...

Sounds like a terrific combo Cranked. No warmth benefit of course

You are exagerating GSTQ. As long as you don't go in the water its the warmest combination around.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Speaking as someone who hasn't actually surfed in a wetsuit for 2 years or more, I must say I'm still in favour of my long johns teamed with a fcuking FRONT zip long sleeve top to make it even easier!

Sometimes when I'm back home in winter I put them on and take them off just because I can.

Re: Sumba

Our flight from Bali to Tambolaka got cancelled by Garuda citing “Operational Reasons”. We’ve had to rebook that leg with Wings Air. I’ve googled, tripadvisored and all that. Seems we’ll be stung 200,000 rups per board each way. Does anyone have actual experience in terms of board lengths you’ve ha...

Re: Ears

I've found that the ear flaps on a surf cap are great for ear protection. WA has bitterly cold morning offshores.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell's kicked up over the last few of hours down south. Easy double overhead now at a few spots and the beaches are maxed out. Blue sky and westerly breeze is making it look lovely. I love fast rising swells. Big lines out to sea, various breaks starting to show, then getting consistent, the freak...

Have been friends with him for 20+ years, great craftsman, great family. Would rather spend my money with him than a shaper with a mass produced model, could have got one over here but trust Ross enough to let him go for it. I liked the shape, Ross and I were discussing a custom for me, yours was t...

Re: post your modern day sickness

I had that under my arm just yesterday channels. Its about time you picked it up, I'm pretty sure I saw it around before I went to Bali (maybe unglassed, can't remember) and that was 3 weeks ago.

Nice board!
