Re: Just general surfing stuff

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

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well if you’re looking for a breaking wave estimate, may I point you in the direction of surf forecast.com. That gives you wave height and kilojoules

Re: Just general surfing stuff

First principles then: The Lennox report is just the forecast swell as verifiable by your nearest buoy. It has nothing to do with wave height at Lennox so is useless as a surf report. Knowing that there will be swell of a certain size may, however, allow a person with some experience of extrapolatin...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

No Steve because it’s not forecasting Breaking wave height. It’s a typo, a lack of flexibility in the machine, a glitch. I admit that it is shit that they have that on their Lennox forecast but it’s clearly an error - just compare foamy’s screenshots. If you want to do a wave height check then you h...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Ok, I’ve worked out what’s going on. If you’re on the magic seaweed model then the graph says Breaking wave height even though it isn’t forecasting that. If you change the model to NOAA or Proteus it just says Swell height

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Jesus Christ it has just changed back. Whatever it says Steve, just ignore it and treat Lennox as just a swell forecast

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Thanks foamy. Although it’s actually just above that that Steve is referring to. On the Ballina forecast it says Breaking wave height but on the Lennox one it says Swell height (although I think this has been changed in response to this thread. I’m pretty certain that when I looked earlier it said B...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Are you sure it still says that? Because when I load the Lennox forecast it now says SWELL HEIGHT. I am a switched on guy steve, which is why I’m insisting that you back up your claims with some evidence. I have no dog in this fight and am comfortable with the idea that magic seaweed may well get it...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Right, there’s a blue square on the Lennox forecast that says ‘breaking wave height’ next to it. Kinda like a key to a chart. You just have to trust me and ignore that. I agree that’s it’s unfortunate that they can’t customise that aspect of the ‘bucket’ into which they pour their data and is superf...
