Re: Wave models

OK so Nick seems not to remember the date of his recent Monday epic. No bother, I will simply delve into the search using some key words and then trip the light fantastic through the magicseaweed archive. First up, 'North Wall': 20 blokes out north wall in onshore 2-3ft this arvo. I'll wait till it'...

Re: Wave models

The best day of surf in the Sydney region this year so far was a 4-6’ (actual) NE swell with light offshore winds about two months ago, on a Monday morning. It ENTIRELY evaded the shitty “forecast” sites. Thus only a few surfers scored it. You wanted to get that day, you had to be watching the actu...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

It reinvigorated my faith in that indefinable thing that is the soul of surfing. The ersatz bullshit of the WSL corporate group think is a demeaning insult to the core fabric of what surfing really is. surfing is all sorts of different things to all sorts of different people. if you want to attach ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Good question. In due course the WSL will be launching the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Programme in association with Corona. Disparagers will be strongly encouraged to have their unreliable memories of the ocean replaced with WSL-approved Moments. The 'GOAT on a Ranch, with Kelly Slater' p...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Not on my watch cnut. I'm gonna make sure I fcuk this whole thing up forever, for everyone except Filipe Toledo. Uh huh. Well, considering you have been blindsided by each and every wave pool development so far, you may want to put these dates in your diary: 2020 - to nobody's surprise and to almos...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's a little nugget in an otherwise fairly uninteresting piece with Jay Leno in an old episode of Top Gear where he says that the arrival of the automobile saved the horse, shifting it from hard worked transport vehicle to leisure accessory in half a generation. Maybe the wave pool will do the s...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You look like a posed action man doll, steve. I’m concerned that you’re wasting your salad years in a forced march, military stiffness.

I think I’m happy to concede that magic seaweed is absolutely hopeless for your stretch of coast

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh and the pin in the map on their spot guide for ballina is by north wall, so I think you can assume they’re forecasting for there if you still want to check their breaking wave height accuracy

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Steve. Once again, the msw Lennox forecast is for the swell on your nearest buoy. It tells you their guess for swell height and period and also swell direction. This is verifiable quite easily from actual buoy readings. I don’t know why it has a Lennox forecast that isn’t directly relevant to the ac...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’ve been wearing a 4/3 in near 20 degree water too steve. It is a vintage rip curl tho, so not bursting with warmth. Gotta say, boots really are shit. This extended spell of warm weather we’ve had has made me massively appreciate surfing barefoot. As for which type, they’re all horrible. My current...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Magic seaweed are a bunch of spastics. That’s beyond dispute. What is still up on the air is the value and accuracy of their data
