Polebean works for BOM?
No, I just create the weather.

Weather patterns for the rest of June look like they were drawn by a drunk. More spring than early winter.
So spring-like here.

Some of us might remember the last really epic June/July, in 2007. The way these patterns are evolving is almost the precise opposite of that year.

Geez. I do remember that. We had just moved up here and I surfed pretty much every day for a couple of months. Thought I was in heaven. Since then, not so much. :-o

Interesting article on swellnet. Just checked mine. A Lost, 2 Chillis and a Psillakis. All real carbon. Wonder who’s using the fake stuff.

I've been wondering for a long time now why they put the "carbon" fiber on the deck. Carbon fiber is much stronger than fiberglass when its in tension but not that much better than glass in compression, so shouldn't it be on the bottom where it will be more in tension than compression

this is the worst east coast low in modern history

it's worse than drunk Polebean algae thread bombing on weekends

It's worse than International Surfing Day

It's worse than third hand mid-length surfboards. Worse than "big wave" legropes in 2' surf. Worse than a half-dug wave pool.

Does anyone have one of those Thai made DHD EPS boards? They have a fairly decorative tail.
