Re: Just general surfing stuff

So far, artificially constructed surfing reefs don't work. Pointless to talk about them. I think what would work really well is to restructure existing reefs. How many times have you seen potential surf spots that just aren't quite right. A subtractive modification does not have the problem of anch...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Only 3 people out on the entire ulus stretch this afternoon, but then conditions were pretty bad. Reminded me of surfing Avalon (WA) or Lefthanders of an afternoon when the southwesterly is in, but not as crowded

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well this discussion is actually leading somewhere: one point being that due to overcrowding and widespread frustration and even occasional violence, its negligent to be advocating that people take up surfing without a plan to increase the availability of surfable waves

The takeover by big business has got to be the worst thing that has EVER happened to surfing. Surfing used to be an escape from the embarrassing and febrile capitalist world of greed and advertising.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Better than Perth? No jet skis? No jet skis and, just as importantly, no sups. Perth is worse then the east coast (and I better not exagerate or Legion will have me for breakfast) by a factor of 10 (we can quible for a point or two) and bali is better than the east coast by a factor of 5 (this time...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Bit onshore and small in the morning. Sunny and offshore in the arvo. Surfed a well known break that is a favourite of many surfers with just one other for an hour, then by myself for an hour as the tide dropped. Infrequent 1'-2', got the Delta UFO up and firing, great board.

Re: Lombok in solid swell ?

Our swell has been downgraded Salty, they knocked about 40% off the kJs so it looks like a pleasant head and a half with the occasional double. In light of the new forecast, will you be revising your trip quiver, Cranked? Nah. Plus I'm already in Bali now. And very pleased to find out that I missed...

Yes. There were three occasions last year when I was caught by 5+ wave double overhead+ sets and felt that I was getting close to the limit. I, and most in the water at the time (who were already a pretty small group) paddled in.
