Re: Where did you surf today ?

That sounds perfect. I'm always checking out the large range of guns available at the Drifta surfshop on the bukit. I like looking at any specialised and perfectly designed object, but especially high performance cars, motorcycles and surfboards.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swellnet says: Model Estimated Surf Size (12pm) 1ft (Knee High) reaching 4ft at south facing beaches I thought that was good, but then remembered that Swellnet is not one of those wanky surf forecast sites like MSW and Surf Forecast so would be using the same scale as Craig, Nick, Steve, etc so it w...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where does MSW get it's call from? According to Godsave they are forecasting/reporting some hypothetical open ocean data point which the common man then extrapolates back to his or her surf spot. But where? There's no buoy data to support their call. It looks like made up computer gibberish to me. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, everyone will be glad to know that Surf Forecast for Lennox has upped the ante and is now forecasting a 20' 18,000kJ pulse from 10pm Thursday night to 4am Friday morning. They are using the the danger symbol rather than giving it a score out of 10. But it will still be glassy,15' and 10 out of...

he's at the wave base. It's shot from above, like a cliff or a FCUKING drone.
It's pretty deceiving, kinda looks like he is half way down it.
I agree, his board is slightly below halfway up the face of the wave.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

He's a bit crouched, so I'm estimating his image is about 5', and I can fit at least 4 of that image between the flat at the base of the wave and the top of the wave. I don't know what the angle is or how far away the picture was taken, so its impossible to correct for that, so I'm still keeping a 2...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

20' faces. A large swell acceptable and accessable for most of the local big wave surfers. So 20-30 in the line-up, rather than just the handfull that attacked the big Ulus swell

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Steve, I don't have any local knowledge for Lennox. I read a few weeks ago that a prediction site in the NE US is adding bathymetric impact to their local model, and the organisation's responsible for the virtual wave buoys are set to halve the buoy area very soon. They expect these two changes to s...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Currently, with few exceptions, automated surf prediction web sites do not over predictions based on local bathymetry nor specific local wind conditions.

Most surfers realise this and apply their local knowledge.

Its just a watch Nick, obviously a model designed to pander to your ego, you should have got the Loofy version for a bit of stern admonishment and an occasional tantrum
