Re: Where did you surf today ?

cranky your beyond Muzza swell, the winds are epic but it all looks a bit too far east for the wind angles heavy winds over a lot of ocean but mostly around 230 degrees.

Unpredicted?
It was on every synoptic chart i sW.
Totally, that thing was accurately forecast four days out

See the tragedy is godsave that until that month at Crabmeat’s Hospice, all this will remain as unguessable for you as a Magic Seaweed surf forecast. A strange mystery on the other side of the planet...populated by extraordinary short bald superhumans with vast quivers of surfboards and terrible gla...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Four unforgettable days at the Newport Surf Racing Academy in Sydney, where you will be comprehensively out-swum, out-surfed, and finally half drowned on a bombie reef on a 10’ day by a bunch of 15-year-olds on paddleboards! Gosh that Surf Racing Academy certainly sounds the absolute business! Tell...

And finished off by a weekend in the Lakemba Collective, where you’ll pump weights, eat unrecognisable food, and get up at 3am to drive four hours for a 2-3’ rip bowl which is actually 6’!!

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Oh, it's not like it's one of my shibboleths or anything Nick. For years I was happy to accept the loudly shouted australian narrative of the best surf and the best surfers in the world. It's only in the last few years that the doubts have started to creep in Wsell there’s only one way to find out

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think it is just fine for cranky and beanpole to use kj, like I don't really expect them to understand anything about what I get up to in the surf zone either. Cranked is into Astron Zots with quad set ups, I wouldn't ride that unless it was the only board in the world, and Beany really seems to r...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

GFS is pretty good for the North Pacific ACCESS is all over the joint this year, it’s had some crackers I dunno, I guess I do not expect pinpoint accuracy from forecasts, the only thing you can be pretty sure of is real time wind speeds and directions on the ocean surface and even that fluctuates a ...
