does anyone else feel like firing up a flamethrower and going on a merciless killing spree every time cranked measures his waves in kilojoules?
But crabmeat, it gives you a much better idea of the power of the bigger swells where the swell height difference may jump just 20% but the equivalent kJ difference is 400%.

Are you familiar with swell interval at all?

How does one calculate a swell in kilojoules?

FFS Braithy, that is precisely why kJs are useful, it is derived from both the swell height and swell interval.

Hmmm. Cant we just use swell height and interval then?

The relationship between them is complex as per the formula in the calculator, you would not predict the power of the bigger swells where the swell height difference may jump just 20% but the equivalent kJ difference is 400%

It’s not the Iggy method of wave height estimation. That’s what wrong with it.

When it comes to wave height around here, imprecisely wrong is acceptable.

I like Crankys high tech wave power method.
