Re: Just general surfing stuff

No. Around Perth the offshore reef blocks most of the swell but the surf forecasts don't take this into account. I usually just convert the metres on the forecasts to feet, that is if the swell is 3m I'll assume its 3' faces. Because of refraction around the reef gaps even a 3m swell is pretty much...

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 f...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh btw trev you might see another pulse from the east around Weds, from a similar wind band associated with a cutoff low NE of NZ. It won’t be much because that low is regressing east on a Sacred Mission to destroy the Teahupoo CT, but it’ll be something. The current pulse is still happening so one...

I've been toying with some concepts involving user engagement with an algorithm to enhance the accuracy of surf forecasts. The same algorithm could quite possibly be tweaked to measure the truthfulness of internet "facts".
Test it on here.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It came from a fairly long easterly fetch out near Tahiti which formed last Sunday and blew pretty strong Sunday night and Monday before shifting away SE behind NZ. Expect the pulse to continue through tomorrow before slowly fading. Cheers Nick. Supposed to be an easterly tomorrow so hopefully ther...

Bonding with your kids in the surf is great.
Wait till you're teaching them to drive.
That's REALLY bonding.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

No, I got arsed because I chafed at the lead too hard and was freelancing when Ben Matson thought I should have been exclusive to Swellnet. I organised a trip to NWWA desert (with a lot of help from people here) and when I got back there was an email in my inbox sacking me, effective immediately. F...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yes, very good BA. I just noticed though that if you just use thousands of kJs you get a measure that is very close to surfers feet but obviously has a scientific basis. Lets call them mega joules (mJs). So like surfers feet go from 1 to 15 feet (for the last bali swell), so we go from 1-15 mJs. Ni...
