Re: Where did you surf today ?

Left at Bondi sneaking through in front of the ramp. Way too rippy up further north. Had a super fun session yesterday way out at Bronte. Feeling Spring in the water.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

you think Balangan at triple OH and solid OH Ulus are "pretty fat"? I think you are adding a bit to my observations. Well Ulus can be. Not saying it always is. Re: Balangan....that footage on the Bali Site looked damn good. Getting in looked like a nightmare based on what I saw. Getting in at Ulus ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So it appears. It's not always that good on overhead days of course. A lot of chargers would think it was pretty fat half the time and would prefer perfect barrels at Padang. Wouldn't you? Being old and a complete kook according to Hatchie Ulus would be one of the waves I would have a crack at when ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

How long ago was that Steve?
I guess before they built all the car parks and restaurants. I watch that footage a few times a week. Granted they shoot Padang if it's good so Ulus might be bigger on those days but most of the crowds at Padang too.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So the answer is "Yes" you have never watched any of this footage. Now Padang appears to get a talented crew but most of the tourists surfing Ulus, Canggu or most of the Bukit are very average and as said the numbers drop as soon as it gets overhead. Cranky has been saying basically the same thing f...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Most of the waves weren't. Number of surfers out every time it's overhead decreases dramatically in the video footage. Half the footage is Canggu anyway. You would have to say a large proportion out on gigantic surfboards when it's a bit over head high are try hards. I take it Steve and Hatchie have...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I must say watching those videos there's a lot of average surfers out there.

Re: Yet another wave pool.

The Investor had never surfed before but 45 minutes later he was gunning it down the line?
Proning I would imagine. That take off didn't look like one a lot of average surfers would make.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sure, Hatchie......sure most surfers surf overhead waves. Just waiting for you to qualify that statement. The try hard bit is the minority that thinks it's their duty to enforce dumb wave measurement systems. So just continuing on my deconstruction of this system....it's like having a speedo on your...

weren't all you Sydney guys frothing about a Mon surf and game of soggy Sao?
Not me Boss. NE lights up Tama but there was no showing at midday. South East wind might be okay at Manly but that's about it. I must say the hoax calls have gone through the roof lately.
