Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was fun. All it needed was a few degrees of east in the swell and it would’ve been a whole different picture.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So did you drive down to Garie again? Looks crap. It’s a day for spots like green island, merewerther, Ulladulla bombie. Not garie, nor Bondi, nor much of anywhere. Though while it wasn’t ideal (straight south swell) it was uncontested. Mostly empty. Fast, shifty, but still managed to pick off a fa...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I read the references. I know the fkn story you goddamned dork. And none of it matters at all —— while the 1 : 0.5 metric is the overwhelmingly used scale all throughout this country. Again. Go check swellnet or coastalwatch - the two main report sites in this country. I’d seriously get a great plea...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yes, nematode. But it’s the same scale 1ft : 0.5ft scale that’s used here. Right or wrong. It simply is. Again. Go check swellnet or coastalwatch - the two main report sites in this country. And Australia also get large waves. Heard of the roaring forties? WA, SA, VIC. TAS. Even NSW gets big. Go dri...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Exactly moron. It seems the (Hawaiins) use the same scale as we (Aussies) do. I read it. Then I posted it. I wasn’t referring to surflines measurements. That’s why I posted the comment you colossal dullard.

Were you deprived of oxygen during birth or something?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This comment on that Surfline link seems to back up the mainstream Aussie scale well. “ arii 11/21/2013 03:10 PM I'm from Hawaii.I am 59.We don't look at the back of the wave when estimating it,we look at the face.Never have,never did.Can't tell you who started saying we measure the back.But we do c...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

And finished off by a weekend in the Lakemba Collective, where you’ll pump weights, eat unrecognisable food, and get up at 3am to drive four hours for a 2-3’ rip bowl which is actually 6’!! this really was the cherry on top here. plus sized rip bowls straight outta lakemba. My Gaza Surf Club hat go...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It gets a hell of a lot better surf than Bondi. On big north east swells it gets insane lefts off the north corner.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This was just now. South swell magnet just south of Sydney. Waist to Chest high, infrequent. Still kinda fun. Enough push and room to complete a cutback on. https://s33.postimg.cc/n28ou2onj/2_F3_ACD2_E-_B199-497_F-_B5_C0-1_D5_E5_A06_BB01.jpg https://s33.postimg.cc/wldsaaf7j/71_EFB074-6609-425_D-_AD0...

“obviously they were just checking the kJs for their local”

Cmon for Christ Sakes. How on earth do you know that. You could check all other variables within 60 secs also.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Over 30 years of surfing and have never yet once had to think about not rely upon “kilojoules” to figure out what’s going with conditions. Pretty sure that’s the same for about 99.9999% of the global surfing community. There’s only one forecasting site using the measurement. Try find another. There...
