I think we were supposed to watch this and think "legend" but I thought it was a bit haunting, even scary
How "old" Nick?
I'm not sure, maybe 60? I'm not sure even he knew.
Yeah. That's about what I'd reckon. Me now. I'm really old. :(

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I must admit I've never thought of that but makes perfect sense.
The kid in my story was only about 10 or 12 and panicking so it's lucky we noticed him.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's fcuken fun as shit down here today. Sad news, Bob, an old bloke who lived in his car above Little Avalon, drowned today after his legrope was caught in rock. Someone made a film about Bob for the FlickrFest thing, I'll see if I can find it Sad news indeed. Mate and I rescued a kid who got his ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Steve. Once again, the msw Lennox forecast is for the swell on your nearest buoy. It tells you their guess for swell height and period and also swell direction. This is verifiable quite easily from actual buoy readings. I don’t know why it has a Lennox forecast that isn’t directly relevant to the a...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nice little swell getting in to my local this arvo.
Got about 10 waves in a bit over an hour and got the hell out of there at 3, leaving it to all the schoolies and teacher.
Just about a dozen of us. By the time I drove away at 3.20, there were about 30 and more coming.
Hope for an early tomorrow.

big pushy S swell with a ton of wind and current here.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I fcuken answered straight away. Don't get a size smaller. I tried that and ended up with bound feet like those women in the national geographics. Don't get reef booties, they tend to have thick soles and are not warm so it's the worst of both worlds. I don't leave mine in the car any more than I d...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

No. Around Perth the offshore reef blocks most of the swell but the surf forecasts don't take this into account. I usually just convert the metres on the forecasts to feet, that is if the swell is 3m I'll assume its 3' faces. Because of refraction around the reef gaps even a 3m swell is pretty much...

Um....Hatchie....you do realise it's no big deal for me to drive over to The Bra don't you. You seem to make it sound like one of your long range surf expeditions. Good luck if you managed to squeeze a surf out of the limited conditions we've had lately. If freezing your butt off at sparrows fart f...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh btw trev you might see another pulse from the east around Weds, from a similar wind band associated with a cutoff low NE of NZ. It won’t be much because that low is regressing east on a Sacred Mission to destroy the Teahupoo CT, but it’ll be something. The current pulse is still happening so one...
