Re: Global Warming

Re: Where did you surf today ?

As I understand it, in the Hawaiian scale the conversion factor slides with size.
So, a 6 foot wave may be 10 to 12 feet imperial, but a 20 - 25 feet wave is probably around 25 - 35 imperial.

I see a subtle downgrade due to duration limited fetch but a very much better outlook for Teahupo'o

Re: Just general surfing stuff

6-10ft Pipeline/Backdoor may be the most dangerous wave in the world, but the WSL guys surf it on pretty much the same board as they surf Snapper. That’s a lot different board to a 9 foot rhino chaser which many of the WSL chaps would never have ridden before and their surfboard shaper doesn’t even ...

Loaned it to AJ to try out. Not odd.
Steve, don’t you loan boards to your mates so they can assess whether they like the shape?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I might be a bit alone, but I like Pottz as well. Consistent, kind of low key, but genuinely appreciative. Those noises he makes, the grunts and oohs behind Joe’s commentary when someone does a big manoeuvre is a good soundtrack for me. And then during the wave replay, the way he glowingly highlight...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You’ve probably all seen the JBay photos on Swellnet, but the second photo of Connor Coffin is an absolute classic JBay shot.

Swellnet also report that waves for the event are unlikely to be top JBay.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That is good news for you, Trev. Congrats! Kelly Slater. The last few years have perhaps tarnished the KS brand for some. But this year! Winning unlikely heats! On Tuesday, he is seen surfing on the Tweed Coast in Australia. On Thursday, he is in Brazil in crappy small waves winning his heat by out-...

This on the wall of a coffee shop in Ala Moana Shopping Centre. They gave me a filthy enough look while I was taking the pics. :oops: Could never have got close enough to nick it. :roll: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG27/DSCF4696Large.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG2...
