Re: Midlengths

After 3 or four near misses, I'm now really paranoid. No shark deaths is one of the great things about indo! Care to elaborate on any Cranked? How near were the misses? Nothing dramatic duck, each one is not much, but they sort of add up to be a bit concerning. First was at Avalon, no one out, smal...

Re: Midlengths

That was my opinion when I moved to WA in 1990 - I surfed everywhere by myself or with one or two others. 20 years! I thought we had an agreement, then in about 2010 it started.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

In the water at 6am today. Started with head high sets every 15 minutes, only 2 or three waves in a set though, but there was only a hand full out over a 500m stretch of the reef. First well overhead 6-8 wave set at around 7am, that kept up till I got out at 8am. Got my pick of a wave from nearly ev...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Chest high this morning, 30 out, a bit lumpy but the offshore will fix that soon. I think I'll wait for the 22s swell due mid afternoon though.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Temples early. Only one person out at 6:30am. Got a few nice fast little waves and a cover up. The crowd had slowly increased to 20 when I paddled/reef hopped in at 8:30 - tide just about too low to surf it anyway

Re: Where did you surf today ?

They are just using a WW3 wave model like everyone else but with no enhancement for local anomalies nor bathymetry, and normal imperial feet.

kJs are only 6,500 because of a pretty short period, not significantly more than the 4,500 of the recent modest Indo swell

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ulus 7am, head high, 60 out at the peak/racetrack.

Bit of a change to the handful of the previous four days.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

No problems so far! I'm cautiously absolutely stoked.

Plus I've started to take more and more heavy wipeouts without any problems.

All of that shit was holding me back. I'd rather not surf again if that was necessary to keep me injury/pain free.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuk I caught a good wave yesterday Al. I'd been pulling back on wave after wave, when suddenly this perfect wedgey ramp appeared on a set wave, it was just out of reach to two other guys, they were screaming "goooo, goooo!" It took about 5 strokes to get in position, then another 5 to drop in. 200+...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell jacked up. I went out at 12pm. Numbers right down, 15 on the primo take off spot, swell the biggest and best of the three days. At 2pm there was just 4 of us and I got a few really good waves, one 300m classic. Went in at 3pm. Excellent conditions at 5pm, 3 on the Bommie, 5 on Outside Corner. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not when it's breaking OK. If it's not I'll go surf one of the many Ulus breaks, and if that fails its off to the one of breaks from Nyang Nyang up to Sri Lanka

Re: Where did you surf today ?

surf Ulus? Nah. There's just too much paddling at the ulus breaks when its big. The swell didn't really arrive, although a set of about 15 well overhead swept me down the coast after I caught one of them. I came in after that at about 3pm so they might have heralded the arrival of the swell, or not...

you ever surf Bingin Cranked?
I surfed it a fair bit in the eighties when it was more or less a secret spot. But I never surf it now, it's a really small take off zone with a hardcore agro (I'm told) Balinese crew.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just spent a bit of time catching up with a mate at his losmen. He was telling me about the best wave he's ever caught. Just as he finished the story another guy came by, Chris looked up and said (to Craig) "You saw that wave eh!" Craig said "Yeah. We were at Bingin when this huge wave came in at Im...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

what about in surf season? Head high surf would be the norm, at least right? thats crowded as fcuk on the Bukit. even those vids of triple OH Balangan had at least 30-40 people out. That's sounds right, same at Impossibles and Bingin and this is my observation of Ulus from yesterday afternoon: Just...
