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.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I know its 3,500 rising to 8,000kJ today. Just looked it up to get that in feet, its 8' rising to 10'. 8'-10' doesn't really give me a good idea of what I'm in for. But I know surviving a 15 wave set at 4000kJ will be pretty chancy for me, 8000 I don't even want to think about. If my leash breaks th...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cranked you can’t be serious with the kilojoules thing... surely Off course I'm serious. That one measure, kJs, tells me all I need to know about the waves I'll encounter at various breaks around here. It succinctly summarises the complex relationship between swell period and height, the rest is lo...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Judging from the engagement (reviews, photos etc etc) I'd estimate the global user base at around 20-50........probably euro kooks, probably the guys that designed it and built it and their friends and family. Sorry Cranked this concept is even more still born than Surftechs. Well fcuk me Steve, Su...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

How many joules? Fcuk joules Jimmy, I've moved on to newton metres* now. * One newton metre is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to the end of a moment arm that is one metre long. I'm sure there's something in a newton meter for everyone, crabmeat in p...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Tomorrow is the day, supposedly. Just got back from checking Ulus, perfect conditions, glassy, light warm offshore breeze, a lazy inconsistent but friendly looking long period swell. About 15 surfers scattered around, nymphs playing in the low tide pools as the sun sinks down behind the Java volcano...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Six great waves today that I'll remember forever. All well over head high, twisting, writhing pedal to the metal. One 400m, the rest 200-300m, glassy uncrowded conditions. 7' zot was fast and perfect for me. No one wanted the primo takeoff position, in contrast to yesterday when there were ten or mo...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I know spot x will get nearly all the energy, spot y most and z very little. If I was building surf forecast software I would build this info into it. I'm very surprised that no forecast site has done this already. The info to do it would be tedious to collect (easy to program and update though) but...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I don't expect any surf forecast site to tell me the wave size for the actual breaks. Just the swell detail is sufficient.

How that affects all the local breaks varies significantly based on several factors which you both know.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

yes, speak badly of. Thats exactly what I meant. You get very butt hurt when people traduce your sacred cows. I think you called me a bigot because I trash talked surftechs. "thousands" ........appreciate the more useful kJ,..... Thousands? bollocks. pure bollocks. I've never heard a single person ...
