Re: Just general surfing stuff

Can he just mention whether they use wave face height or kilojoules?
I should point out that Coastalwatch was calling Bondi and The Bra 1-2 and 2-3 today.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Super excited :D
Oh well, suppose I might as well chuck the board in. If Hatchie is half believable it's possibly better than it looks on Coastalwatch. No surf anywhere else. Bet he's bullshitting as usual.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I wasn't whinging just taking the piss out of your usual feverish rundown of your very average surfs. A typical Hatchie surf report will usually include some reference to how you selected the perfect board from your collection of old surfcraft and managed to execute a series of magnificent manouvres...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Um....Hatchie....you do realise it's no big deal for me to drive over to The Bra don't you. You seem to make it sound like one of your long range surf expeditions. Good luck if you managed to squeeze a surf out of the limited conditions we've had lately. If freezing your butt off at sparrows fart fo...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That's you're...If it will make you happy. I didn't actually don surfing garb for the occasion but I did chuck the board and wetsuit in. Thought it looked crap from Coastalwatch. I thought maybe Hatchie has picked a good little bank out there that may show promise again later as the tide fills in......

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Looked crap about an hour ago. Hardly breaking. Infrequent sets. Crowded. Maybe waist high in the biggest sets. More like knee high.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I used the Hatchcam Surf Report for Maroubra. They have a bouy at Lakemba. I find the site usually tends to over call wave sizes and use obscure measurement systems. This report was better in that it used actual human reference points but again it over called by quite a margin. Interestingly Coastal...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Maybe they are talking about inside the River. Steve going all local on GST just because he is telling him how big the surf is in front of where he lives from the other side of the world.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Can I just say Magic Seaweed got all the details right for the swell when I hit it up to Crescent a few weeks ago. Spot on.....except they gave it a one to two star rating for the place. It was if not prime very close to.

Seven feet rocks.
