Re: Sunny Garcia

I just couldn't get enough of the ancient temples overgrown by trees in Cambodia. Such complex emotions, civilisations rising and falling, slowly returning to nothingness https://previews.123rf.com/images/plotnikov/plotnikov1210/plotnikov121000285/16060190-huge-roots-destroying-the-temple-angkor-wat...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The late this arvo down south was fun as fcuk. Bout 4-5 ft fairly solid at the local swell magnet beachy, lined up and consistent, about 8-10 guys out and the LAGO helping to clean up conditions dramatically. The late autumnal sun was just catching the feathering of the sets, giving them an orange ...

Re: Bells Beach

I firmly stand by my comment that without JJF (and, OK, Medina too) this so-called day of days would have been reduced to a freak show, notable only for the apparent inability of the professionals either to plan for or to surf in a scoreable fashion waves that were outside of their comfort zones an...

It's only showing 5 stars on my website page??????
Change from the 7 day forecast to the 48 hour forecast. Its the 7am one.

I must admit that I thought it was out of 5 stars too for years, over 5 is pretty rare.

Re: Bells Beach

surf forecast says WSW 35 kph (side off). 3 stars out of 10 about right. I'd surf it if I was desperate, ie. if I was a weekend surfer in Oz. I'd even surf it on the bukit, there'd probably only be 2 people out.

Re: Bells Beach

It was a bit like getting up and all kitted out for a surf without checking the forecast and finding it crap, then realising I should have looked at the forecast first and gone back to bed. Much more common to have the opposite experience, as per Bells. An over-hyped forecast that fails to deliver....

Re: Bells Beach

Steve, a while ago you asked, essentially iirc, whether my injuries were overuse/age related and the answer is no, the rotator cuff tears are a result of the bike accident. The spinal degenerations are however caused by age and use, but it seems that while they may cause problems later on, they are ...

Re: Bells Beach

Hmmmm, big swell for Bells? Surf forecast is calling 2000kJ at 10am, 4500kJ at 4pm, and peaking at 6000kJ (10') tomorrow at 7am but dropping off quickly. I'm not familiar with Bells but on the Bukit that is a pretty average dry season forecast with a relatively short time above 4000kJ. Best describ...
