Yes. There were three occasions last year when I was caught by 5+ wave double overhead+ sets and felt that I was getting close to the limit. I, and most in the water at the time (who were already a pretty small group) paddled in.

In light of the new forecast, will you be revising your trip quiver, Cranked?

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

Nah. Plus I'm already in Bali now.

And very pleased to find out that I missed one of the heaviest wet seasons in many years. Only started fining up in the last week and I certainly hope it stays on that trend

Heaviest wet season? Do you mean heaviest rainfall or very solid swell?

Cranked talking rain. It bucketed down this wet season. The three wet seasons prior to this one were El Nino super dry, so dry the rice farmers had serious problems. Was there for those "wet" seasons, which were really just the odd, brief, localised thunder storms maybe once or twice a week.

There was definitely more rain in late November last year compared to previous years. It didn't rain as much in the two seasons before that when I was there.

The where in Lombok for heavy swell, factors a lot.
Had some serious hammering over the years.
Age now limits me a little :-)(
Jaffa, I'm opinionated, and I'm sometimes right. So?

Hey ots don't se you much round here
I am staying on the south coast
The original swell has been downcast substantially but there may me a second pulse at 19. Seconds

Either way winds are light as and size will be 6ft plus easy

I'd love to surf the bar with a bit of size to it. Arrived last October a day too late. Apparently, it was too much on day one, perfect day two and too small on day three
