I think we were supposed to watch this and think "legend" but I thought it was a bit haunting, even scary
I think: there but for the Grace of God, etc etc

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I'm very patient, very gentlemanly in the water. I usually give people the benefit of the doubt.
Still ridden millions of waves in this lifetime.

Hopefully X will do the same for me.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

3-5ft.......very slow, inconsistent but some real screamers. Insanely crowded. Dropping swell. Lot of waiting around for 1 wave sets. I tried to play a patience game....the very best wave that came my way....right in the slot for...there was another guy waiting inside me. It was his wave by rights. ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The fact is though, it’s just a 60km out to sea or whatever swell forecast. Getting back to a question I asked about 100 years ago, if their swell forecasts - as verifiable by the buoys - are indeed accurate, does this information not have some value to the seasoned surf forecaster? Isn’t it doing ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

you'll get that pulse a lot more than up here....thats a really weird area for a fetch...back against the grain of the typical westerly flow down there. I have to file this S swell under H for hoax ....again. The problem: as has been almost all winter, the low raced too quickly through the swell win...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The surf has dropped right off, back to a burgery high tide 3-4ft. Magic Seaweed is saying it's 15 foot right now and has awarded it 5 stars. Fifteen Feet. Do we need to go on Godsave?
