Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah, fun as it is, it's just surfing. Not that complicated agree. and i've discovered recently i pretty much hate anything that takes something pure, and complicates it. • kilojoules in wave forecasting • litres in surfboards • vaping, waxing, dabbing and ventilating and weed • beanpole and realsurf

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The thing is, I don’t think anyone should dismiss it out of hand. Is it really that inconceivable that it might one day become common place? fair suck of the old sav, mate. if it's not the most single handedly retarded surf measurement in use right f u cking now, my name's not pedro. in fact, if it...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

How many joules? Fcuk joules Jimmy, I've moved on to newton metres* now. * One newton metre is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to the end of a moment arm that is one metre long. I'm sure there's something in a newton meter for everyone, crabmeat in p...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Cranked, just remember all of these guys said the same thing about litres a few years ago. 6 years ago: Every real surfer knows the only dims that matters are Lx W x T. None of this litres shit, thats just ridiculous. Kooks. Pathetic value that means nothing and is completely irrelevant. today: do ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah, yeah. Take today for instance, swell size and period around 8am is 1.6m at 18s, at 11am its 2.2 and 18s. over half a metre of swell increase at 18 seconds, is a pretty substantial spike in swell. head high to properly overhead in three hours? under no circumstances does one need to go full re...

He’s a proper geographer/oceanographer so I’m sure it has a rock solid theoretical foundation what's his last name? I was talking with a guy from the UK about a feature for surfing life ... bathymetry expert. can't for the life of me remember his name. dumbing down swell height, direction and inter...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

so there's a whole secret society running around talking about waves in kilojoules? is there like a leader of this cult? a grand poobah, if you will?

You yellow bastard! Get in here and contribute.

For example, you could tell us how many kilojoules were in your most very recent waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

does anyone else feel like firing up a flamethrower and going on a merciless killing spree every time cranked measures his waves in kilojoules? But crabmeat, it gives you a much better idea of the power of the bigger swells where the swell height difference may jump just 20% but the equivalent kJ d...
