Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

The sharks are using scent to find it, presumably. Takes a while for the slick/scent to disperse, and be tracked.

Dunno about dusk.

Read that last paragraph and then understand why deep water equations for calculating Kj's are not appropriate.
Hans Einstein worked on fluid dynamics, and his dad, Albert, said turbulent flow was a more difficult problem than the theory of relativity.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Cranked I think you need to read a bit more about waves in general. You are mixing up ocean waves and breaking waves, and your description of what you think happens when waves break is a bit loony. If 100 cubic metres of water, per metre of shoreline length, was deposited by each 1m high 12s period ...

They've also underestimated the length of the NSW coastline by almost 600 miles.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

If only there was some way you hyperventilating tards could take a picture of what you are seeing on the website, let's call it a screenshot just for ease of reference, and edit that image to show what you mean. Take your objective, fact based approach and GTFO. Channels you didn't really think eit...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I thought it would be better for the river, but it's not.
Even the wind chop and boat wakes expose that it has no affinity with waves, no feel for the run or the curve at all.
And the light weight and extra buoyancy is a hindrance in the ocean.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've discovered that there's a certain point of the runout tide where the river near me forms standing waves for about 40 minutes.

Had a lot of fun playing on them, but made me realise that I need to get a proper slsa ski with more rocker.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's a bunch of websites that do that, but not in the surf space. Citizen journalist stuff, scientific forums etc.
They're almost all shit.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

What about support for the smart drumlines? I reckon the whale population is in overshoot so that's why we are seeing the dying whales in decent numbers, and lots of shark food. Wouldn't be surprised to find they're maturing earlier and having larger litters. Some pretty small changes to those facto...
