Re: Where did you surf today ?

This drone footage of one of the long rides at Ulu is pretty good. An 80 second ride. https://youtu.be/UdDx4UGlJww Has anyone got any footage of the other two tow-in waves with the barrels? Just imagine the same size wave, but barreling top to bottom. I think its the brazzo on both. Now that was a ...

Re: Waves you've seen but never ridden.

Saw a wave that seemed to line up from a headland near Bonnie Hills and connect right through to the main beach in maxing out conditions about three years ago.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Went for a paddle. As Skip described. Fairly frustrating with the crowd factor. I have a bit of a thing about not surfing on Sunday. Tried sitting wide and waiting for a big one. Gave up on that after half an hour and paddled up to the other side. Semi close out to go in on. Some guy still trying to...

Re: winter 2018

I've had heaps of waves, Steve. Plenty in the head high to overhead range. Plus seen some of the biggest south swell I can remember for quite while.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's smaller than yesterday and I wouldn't call it 6-8ft faces then. Bit of over calling there? Waiting for a bit more water on the bank before I go out. *Note: don't usually take a mal out at this size......unless it's Crescent Head....or Noosa. Then I might. It's funny....everyone has a bit of a l...

The Fat Bullet has a fantastic glass job. I read somewhere Muz puts the matting on with the weave diagonal.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So getting back to wave measurements. The Balinese...and cranky can correct me if I'm wrong....use the length from your elbow to your middle finger as a unit of measurement when they build someone's house. So the number of units remains the same but the actual house is built to scale for the individ...

It was pretty chunky yesterday. If you were prepared to take the sets on the head there were some decent waves.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

:D That's nice, The Hatch. Try a bit more time in the gym to work out your anger management issues. Using bold capitals always wins an argument :-D-: You are the one who included the Hawaiian reference. So some surf reports use those scales? These days they usually include a reference to it in physi...

Solid this arvo. Man the swell is quickly eating the sand away at the south end.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just to recap, shit for brains. The basic argument is that this method developed in Hawaii. It has some relevance in an environment where the waves regularly get huge. As it spread out it became something that people who had been there and regularly rode large waves adopted....plus wannabes who thou...
