Re: Where did you surf today ?

So they feel the need to clarify wave measurements by refering to human scale? Point taken. The elitist bit really refers to the fact that it is more useful for estimating waves over head high than under head high. Since the vast majority of surfers surf waves under head high most of the time it's n...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Enforcers. God your a cretin. 99% of the Australian surfing fraternity use the scale, including the major local surf report sites. the 1% that don’t were alive to see Gidget when they were in high school. Stop dissing on Gidget, Mr Standards Enforcer. 90% of the surfing population don't surf waves ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I still think this is all just a massive troll. I mean really, in which carpark do you think others won't just laugh at you. Maybe Avalon I guess, with a bunch of sup riders new to the water. How have you surfed for ever without using the conventional system that every single other surfer I've ever...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Agreed,That's where this cracks me up. I agree but your scale is so random that it's meaningless. Maybe you over call wave sizes using your own scale and I undercall them using mine. :-o

It really is just dick swinging bullshit.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It is interesting but it’s not corrupted imo cranky, it’s just cultural. That's the weird thing - in the WA surf culture ranging from grommets to people almost as old as Cranked it's all iggy scale. So it's incongruous that he suddenly decided to adopt an obscure British website's system. There was...

Shouldn't it have been 8 to 2 foot then :-D-:
Get any waves today?
Yes, probably should have taken a different board though.

Wasn't Mark Foo in a comp at Mavericks when he drowned?
He was free surfing.
Okay. Maybe they just held the comp soon after he carked it.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Bondi’s got nothing much going for it. It’s a product of the worst absence of environmental planning in history. It’s garlanded by sewerage outlets to the north and to the south, and every time the rain tries to wash the beach into the sea the Council get their bulldozer out and fixes things up. If...

Re: TAHITI PRO 2019

That was one of the more boring comps I've watched this year. Wipe outs were okay though.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not on your own there. Although there were burnings aplenty around the traps here.
