Re: Where did you surf today ?

Anyhow, in other surf forecasting news the North Pacific Jetstream is finally starting to shift southwards to it's more common winter positions steering much stronger severe gale to storm-force low pressure system fetches towards the Hawaiian islands.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Compare it to the low/cold front second week of Jan this year which actually generated the biggest S swell of the year so far and it's night and day.

Not me, satellite data shows the actual position and stre\ngth of the fetch.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, I disagree. First fetch is severely attenuated by being in the shadow of the South Island. There's something but the strongest winds by far are on the wrong side of the south Island. Second fetch mentioned is even worse. It's a weird, very weird pattern. A ginormous slow moving low pressure gyr...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Yes, I read that report already. Very small data set and very weak P value (statistical significance for water temp). Those "conclusions" obviously don't hold for east coast attack patterns where sub-tropical distributions of sub-adult/juvenile white sharks and subsequent attacks/encounters have ver...

Well I'm not a marine biologist. I'm just refering to the report conclusions based on the stats.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Very contested findings Beany and totally contrary to the data from the east coast.

DPI advise 3.52 m White Shark tagged and released from SMART drumline at SOUTH BALLINA, Ballina at 07:30 pm on 16 Nov 2018.

Water temp well over 20 at the moment.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Is that a performance longboard Nick? Yes! Yes it is. I was thinking of riding it on my next trip to Wales. I’m expecting about 150 kilojoules. Trouble is, I’m not sure which fins to “run”, maybe the Hot Goat v2 quad set with the luminescent green tips, the same ones Twig didn’t use at Nazare yeste...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A guy was hit in a tinny off Julian Rocks ....fighting a fish.
hit the tinny so hard it knocked him out of the boat.

he climbed back in, landed the fish and went and told the dive boats with all the tourists snorkelling nearby there was a 12ft white around.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah they pull around 250-300 tiger sharks off buoys and nets each year in Qld, it's not like there is a lack of 'em I wasn't really worried. Ironically the other day when swimming in after my board, not once did shark cross my mind. There's a bunch of kayakers go out at Moffs every morning, to fis...
