Re: Surf helmets - hopefully Roy fcuks off

Well let me know if you want a black xl Gath once you're done testing.

Any headaches or vision issues?

Re: Surf helmets - hopefully Roy fcuks off

No eating?! A fate worse than death for grooter. Gaths don't have proper impact protection, it's the wrong sort of foam. More like footy headgear. They take a while to get used to. Lack of noise and difficult to duckdive without them filling up and snapping your head backwards. I've got one you can ...

Re: Midlengths

Sounds pretty much like tuflite.
Probably surf about the same as any minimal with similar construction, see my comments here:

Re: Norfolk Island

Didn't mention it before but I was there for the annual agricultural show.
They had categories like 'best 12 mulberries on a player's, 'best pair of feral chickens caught on the northern side of the island's.

The tard finalists here wouldn't even get out of the pool stages over there.

Re: Occy's lake

There's one out in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane too.

I thought the one near Trev was a Barra fishing place now?

Re: Norfolk Island

After about 15 surf checks over a week I surfed once. Could've pushed that to 3 if I had someone to watch me, or I was less concerned about losing bark on the reef. It was apparently one of the best weeks of weather in months. Didn't see another surfer all week. The fishing was ridiculous. Caught ab...

Re: Norfolk Island

sorry Boo, just saw this, will have a squizz soon as I can. Would still appreciate it. Local weather is useless, internet almost nonexistent. Hard place to figure out most of the breaks. Bit much swell, and bit much west. It's dropped and swung so fingers crossed for the rest of the week. The break...

Heading there tomorrow. Anyone want to hazard a surf forecast?
BOM marine forecast is a bit vague, figuring out what board to take.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Saw a break working today that I haven't seen working like that since about 2009.

Way, way too sharky to paddle out.
Plus a long long way from an ER.

Re: Wave models

As they should be. 7 day wind forecasts are mostly fantasy.

I love the regional forecasts, they're so inaccurate for the places I surf it's like going back to the early 2000s.

If only there was some sort of measurement of wave energy you could use as a gauge.

Pedantry is the bedrock of science.

If you're fine with just disregarding all the situations where the real world doesn't match the theory, you should've been an economist.

Re: Wave models

And as I've pointed out before, kJs are very useful and I use them as, unlike swell height, kJs remain the same irrespective of whether a wave is a deep ocean swell, near coastal swell, or a breaking wave Jesus fcuk. Your attachment to kJ doesn't even adhere to the laws of physics now? So all break...
