Re: Just general surfing stuff

For a little while I worked directly for a company extracting gas from offshore formations just west of Bass Strait. The offshore rig and onshore processing plant are relatively new, but require continual maintenance. They're never too far from a potentially disasterous fcukup The scale of potential...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well, it could be that a change in bathymetry due to sand deposit has affected swell concentration/direction, but if there were sand deposited on the reef itself, it would be shallower and thus still break. Sets were making way to it though and mostly not breaking. Hence, my subsidence theory Moved ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nah, that's the weird thing. It's always just been a reef. Historically, at the size and tide it was yesterday it would break about 80 m from shore. 50-60 m was then a fun Wally wave made for turns then running into a bowly section over the "suck rock". Only then did sand come into play and occasion...

Was at Pt Leo this morning. Didn't surf 'cause of work - I just wanted to look at 1st Reef to try and figure why it doesn't work anymore. Everything was in place for it to be as I remembered. Good size, right tide, but it just doesn't break like it did Meantime, where Groots probably was looked as i...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Good points, Nick, and I'll read with interest Because of chronic injury, my capacity to surf what I once did without much consideration is greatly diminished. Primarily, it's to not imperil myself or others who would likely attempt my rescue. Dunno what I'd do if someone was in trouble and I was se...

Exactly, but it's all academic. Fact is it will be done. As will the stretch south to Port Macquarie. When is the question Also, despite what any of us think is the right sort of development, it will be developed.

I drove the Point Plomer Rd between xmas and new year. Sure, it'll be a whole lot different if they seal it, but really it's a matter of when, not if

I got a pm from aj about some fins I'd loaned him. Said he'd probably not be back on RS, but never say never. I'll miss posts from one of our most intelligent and interesting contributors
