Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

saw some guys down Sharpes beach the other afternoon with full game fishing tackle set-up.

Old mate was just about to paddle a kayak out near the drum-line with a snapper frame on a 14/0 circle to try and bait up a white.

He reckons he'd had three hookups with whites this season.

They're only baited during the day, Steve.

Yeah I know but they are baited early and pulled later than the hook-up times.

I watch the guy do it every day.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

respect.

Going barefoot will increase the circulation.

Just try half and hour a day.

If fails then get the booties?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think Foamy, if you can get past that passive-aggressive little whine, what we've established is that surf-forecast might be useful for Cranked on the Bukit, but doesn't travel well.

So it's unlikely, unless other sites start using Kj, that it will mean anything to anyone other than Cranked.

Read that last paragraph and then understand why deep water equations for calculating Kj's are not appropriate.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

This is because I think a swell with say 500kJs will produce similar waves at your local irrespective of whether the swell is 6' at 9s or 2' at 15s, and etc for larger kJ swells. Overall, all you need to know for most surfs is whether its under 500 (marginal for surfing) or 1000, 2000, 3000 or 4000...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Surf forecast doubled the Kj reading for today here and the surf is half the size.

Please explain Cranked.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Did you not see any of the data I posted yesterday?

Actual real data.

Would you like me to interpret it for you? I thought you liked it raw.

Aren't you on holidays?
