The Eddie and roys tangent

How big Roy? I'm pretty sure there is a big difference between 10 foot and 25 foot. It's impossible to discusss wave height on a public forum because most people have been brainwashed into the idea that for waves up to a certain height the true measurements are halved or divided by three, above a c...

Re: Summer. How's it lookin?

The wind forecast for the weekend has changed AGAIN. Now it's looking like Monday morning is the go and Sat and Sun will be SE.

Re: Genuine picture from Mentawai for Iggy.

Check the Coastalwatch front page today and the shot of Margaret River. The swell chart on their forecast called this as 4 - 5 foot. I'm calling the right-hander about 6 foot and the left a touch bigger than that.

Re: Calling all the Big Blokes!

At 6'4" and 130kgs, you definitely want that amount of foam. Depending on the waves you surf though, perhaps it is a touch to long but the width and thickness seem about right.

Re: Dane Quitting Tour/Sensationalism?

I find it interesting how people rail on Stab. I'll be the first to admit it is up there with the Daily Telegraph for important news (and tend to focus on style over substance) but cast your mind back to the Parko ankle injury last year. Egan was there telling Stab to go forth and multiply and that ...

It's a plastic thing with essentially a deep double concave, it's a pretty cool thing and enables to stay high up the face and ...
