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? Or have we firmly established that despite some proper chops (Tony Butt) Magic Seaweed is fcuking hopeless here. Fi...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yep, particularly such a southerly swell, I suppose. Dr Tony Butt seems to be Magic Seaweed's head man for NSW. Legend, big wave charger and author of the book 'Surf Science' that you recently recommended. He lives a long way away, of course. Yeah I read his spiel on this swell. I think the problem...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not being too harsh, as Nick explained, the east coast is an absolute bitch to forecast for.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

For where Foamy?

Ballina is a shire, not a surf spot. There are 20-30 surf spots in Ballina shire.

Lennox is an actual surf spot.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Magic Seaweed says it's 10.5 ft building to 15ft at Lennox .
Surf forecast says it's 5400kj.


Surf is about 2-3ft, slopey S swell.
