Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was, you guys nearly had me bamboozled into accepting feet. The energy of the wave is what counts. Feet do not measure the energy of a wave

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just checked forecasts for today at ulus:

Swellnet 8-10
Surf Forecast 6-8
Surfline 10-15
Magic Seaweed 6-8

no reason to change my mind, kJs on Surf Forecast give me a much better idea of what surf to expect

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was just looking at wave height for ulus on Magic Seaweed. Today it varies from 8' to 6'. Then I thought why am I fcuking around with kJs? Feet are all all so simple, It drops just 2 feet from 8 to 6, the surf is going to be much the same all day, why bother with kJs, especially as I don't really ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, I paddled out before first light this morning, fortuitously in a lull. Sets were head and a half to double every half hour, conditions really clean and glassy with a light offshore, one other person out for the first hour, slowly up to 10 well spread out for the next. Got 6 good waves and was ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It may be the relative closeness of the reef but I've seen the biggest waves I've ever seen there.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was just going to do an afternoon session and decided to do a surf check first. To do that I headed down to where I was going to surf. What I did without thinking though, was to note where the surfers were siting and how many of them were sitting there. There were 4 at the southern take off zone a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just caught up on the last 12 pages of this thread. I feel like putting a knife in a powerpoint. You should be ashamed of yourselves. This was a vital discussion realsurfers needed to have. You can't just sweep these things under the carpet BA, they need a thorough airing and free and forthright di...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was a glorious day's surfing yesterday and the kJs were an accurate measure of just why it was so. To give an example, at Bondi today the prediction is 15kJ, yesterday at ulus there were a few moments when it hit 5000kJ. The small band of surfers who took on the bombie know exactly what 5000kJs o...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

At 7am there was a heavy mist over Ulus, a blood red sun surrounded by an aura of orange cloud was coming up over Kuta and a ship out to sea looked like it was floating in the mist. Very few people around anywhere. There were solid sets coming through, some breaking as a continuous wave from the bom...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Unfortunately no Salty, I go back on 29th of this month.

It would have been good to catch up and the waves will most probably be pretty good

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cranked, you’re an OCD completist with plenty of time on his hands - for a week, take a morning, noon and night picture of your favoured spot and post it together with the Kj rating and any other supporting evidence you feel necessary. That will surely sway the naysayers to your side of the argumen...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wow 10 pages of Kilojoule tardfest ! And no sign of the dribble ceasing This is fanspastic I think I'm about done now salty, besides I'm rested now and its time to head back to the surf. Its nowhere near the forecast size, I think its because the 16s swell has dropped off as predicted, but the 22s ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

“obviously they were just checking the kJs for their local” Cmon for Christ Sakes. How on earth do you know that. You could check all other variables within 60 secs also. It was purely to tongue in cheek to annoy the kJ haters Hatchy. But then again you never know, I just checked Surfline and Magic...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think the idea of special treatment for me is a very good idea though.

Guys there was 2 million hits on Surf Forecast over the last 6 months. Most for about a minute, obviously they were just checking the kJs for their local. I think the kJ cat is already out of the bag.
