Wind blown high tide peaks
Easterly swell about 3ft.
Sort of frustrating

Loofy's a two time world champion retard Nick, you know that. And it's the weekend so Beanpole won't sober up till Monday morning.
Tell us about it, rub godsavethequeen's nose in it.
God damn it

3-4' surfing size. But even that is misleading. It invites comparison to 3-4' waves in other places, which is not appropriate because this is not like other kinds of surfing.

I'm going to write extensively elsewhere about the set-up and the experience of the place, which has been woefully under-explained, both in the WSL's highly curated videos and in the small interview clips that've been allowed with people who've ridden it.

So just wait for that.

Well, at least there's no blue bottles in Lemoore.
It's virtually unsurfable today down sth. 4 of us went out, all got stung, one wave each, that was it. It was a clusterfcuk of bluebottles. Impossible to dodge them. I've never seen this many on the sth coast. The beaches are blue.

Thanks Nick, keen to hear more. Godsave is not going to take slagging Snowdonia lying down.
And no bluebottles.

Kind of groovy that bluebottles mostly getting around by sailing via their float. And there are left-handed and right-handed bluebottles. You can see wind hitting a pack and one lot will sail in one direction and the other sail in the other direction. Left-handed bluebottles sail to the right of the wind and vice versa.

Couldn't be more flies than Oz. Trouble with American flies, unlike their docile antipodean cousins, they bite like flying pirrhannas.

I was out surfing today and I was talking to this gnarled, salt encrusted bali-hand.

He said Nusa Dua was epic yesterday, he surfed it by himself for 2 hours, it was a solid 5'

Whoa I said, there's no such thing as 5' - iggy would have been proud of me - fcuk off you stupid cnut he replied

The only time in my entire surfing life where I've said the surf was three feet yesterday and the listener went....."wow, overhead.".....was on Nusa Lembongon. The guy was a frother as well.

Tiny surf today, but had a good hour at a place where the "bathometry amplifies the swell"® before the tide killed it.

On the paddle back I hooked into three in a row of these tiny little waves:

Each was 200m of endless turns. The above from the last and worst. I paddled in after that.
