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...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yes, waist high is usually in the off season, that's when the euro learners arrive en mass.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah, the number of surfers out is inversely proportionate to the wave size. Waist high 150, double overhead 30.

This morning it's consistent head high waves again, no wind, low tide and just a hand full out.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just looking at Ulus from Made Bentils place. Glorious late afternoon, there's a gentle offshore, 40 out at racetrack, just a dozen others covering the other 80% of the reef. The bombie and outside peak are trying to break, there's the occasional wave just now and then, outriders for the coming swel...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think you are doing great Cranked. wasn't the initial diagnosis you would never surf again? Thanks Steve. Yeah, that was my GP who told me that when we were looking at all the images and the radiologists report, I was devastated. Braithy gave me some good advice though, and when I finally saw a p...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Consistent head high waves and frequent overhead sets, light offshore.

I've finally started finding a place in the lineup again and getting some decent waves. Its been a long drought since my bike accident in mid March.

Afternoon session is next. It's forecast to be much bigger Wed and Thurs.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

At my local. Nice even overhead lines stretching out to sea, just about dead calm, misty. Nearly an hour after first light, no one out, two surfers walking slowly across the reef.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

.. . I'm just leading the wave estimate culture ATM. There is no way the far more useful kJ won't win out in the end, if only for forecasting initially, but eventually for all wave estimations. Cranked, the Sunstroke of surf forecasting. Not really offy. kJs are telling you much more about the wave...
