Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Been a pretty fun summer so far. certainly, Carroll's call that everywhere was going to be as good as it gets was a ridiculous piece of over-hype but TC Yasa kept us in fun waves for a week. there's been waves every day. now that we've got our specs in on the winners and losers in the sand bank depa...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I had quite a fun surf yesterday arvo in punchy 2ft close-outs. there was just the hint of new trade swell energy in the water. it was good for doing reos. Got an awesome piece of sand lined up for the upcoming days as that E swell builds. I'm quite sure it will be uncrowded. Godsave, are you in ful...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ok, that looks like something wrapped in around the bottom of Ireland.

Let me ask the question a different way: do you think that swell wrapped in around the bottom of Ireland?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I can read Magic Seaweed with the best of them pal. Average swell periods for the east coast of Aus are mostly low, but it's proximal fetches and consistency, along with a stack of good spots that make it such a consistent wave zone. Along with a 180 degree swell window. Anyhow, you don't seem inter...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

and yes, I know Llangennith has 4ft of winds swell right now.

you're being unnecessarily defensive when all I'm trying to do is understand a little more about your coast-line and how it behaves during these Atlantic storms.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

we seem to be talking past each other. there's an enormous fetch right now within 3-400 ks of you. Exposed coasts in Morocco are 10-15ft. Wales is puny. So I'm trying to work out , of that little amount of surf you are getting from that massive fetch, is it mostly local windswell or wrap around the ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

quite the opposite actually. Had to jump through a lot of hoops to establish that my call was correct: 5/8ths of fukall of that swell got into Wales. And most of what did was either wrap or windswell. Exactly the same as my personal experience while in England. Massive Atlantic storms that were bloc...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

looks like fake news to me. I didn't see anything like that on any of the cam replays I got to load.

looks close to flat on the cam now.
