Re: Where did you surf today ?

Exactly moron. It seems the (Hawaiins) use the same scale as we (Aussies) do. I read it. Then I posted it. I wasn’t referring to surflines measurements. That’s why I posted the comment you colossal dullard.

Were you deprived of oxygen during birth or something?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This comment on that Surfline link seems to back up the mainstream Aussie scale well. “ arii 11/21/2013 03:10 PM I'm from Hawaii.I am 59.We don't look at the back of the wave when estimating it,we look at the face.Never have,never did.Can't tell you who started saying we measure the back.But we do c...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It gets a hell of a lot better surf than Bondi. On big north east swells it gets insane lefts off the north corner.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This was just now. South swell magnet just south of Sydney. Waist to Chest high, infrequent. Still kinda fun. Enough push and room to complete a cutback on. https://s33.postimg.cc/n28ou2onj/2_F3_ACD2_E-_B199-497_F-_B5_C0-1_D5_E5_A06_BB01.jpg https://s33.postimg.cc/wldsaaf7j/71_EFB074-6609-425_D-_AD0...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Over 30 years of surfing and have never yet once had to think about not rely upon “kilojoules” to figure out what’s going with conditions. Pretty sure that’s the same for about 99.9999% of the global surfing community. There’s only one forecasting site using the measurement. Try find another. There...

Yeah but wannasurf isn’t worth paying much attention to. The editors are just general public. And much of it seems to be written by 11 year olds.

Re: Where is the surf at!?

I can answer the question for you. The surf around Nambucca Heads is mostly very ordinary. However the rivermouth / outer bar catches a far wack of south swell or any available swell. Long punchy walls. Sharky and spooky. A Mission paddle out and in.
