Re: Just general surfing stuff

If only there was some way you hyperventilating tards could take a picture of what you are seeing on the website, let's call it a screenshot just for ease of reference, and edit that image to show what you mean. Take your objective, fact based approach and GTFO. Channels you didn't really think eit...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I thought it would be better for the river, but it's not.
Even the wind chop and boat wakes expose that it has no affinity with waves, no feel for the run or the curve at all.
And the light weight and extra buoyancy is a hindrance in the ocean.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've discovered that there's a certain point of the runout tide where the river near me forms standing waves for about 40 minutes.

Had a lot of fun playing on them, but made me realise that I need to get a proper slsa ski with more rocker.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's a bunch of websites that do that, but not in the surf space. Citizen journalist stuff, scientific forums etc.
They're almost all shit.

Some uni student did that a few years back.

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

What about support for the smart drumlines? I reckon the whale population is in overshoot so that's why we are seeing the dying whales in decent numbers, and lots of shark food. Wouldn't be surprised to find they're maturing earlier and having larger litters. Some pretty small changes to those facto...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That horse has bolted, Nick. And the majority of the east coast already has that policy, and has done for almost 10 years. Implementation is another matter entirely, due to the domination of local governments (and state government donors) by developers, and politicians too scared to set a precedent....

Cheers Trev.
Tim's a good guy, very clever. Sounds like a great project, and that's a difficult grant to win.
I'll keep an eye out for any job ads.

Given the proper acronym for megajoules is MJ, I propose that cranked's new measure be known as 'mong-jewels'.
