Re: Where did you surf today ?

Perfect 10' faces? Way out of my league, I get very shaky at 4000 kJs, and I probably wouldn't go out as the 1 hour sets of a 4000kJ 5 star 20s period swell may be 10 plus waves at 15' I've noticed 5 stars is perfect conditions on a 6-8' swell and for quite a while I thought that 5 stars was their t...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The Hawaiian big wave surfers I've met in Bali, when asked to compare Indo and Hawaii, say it gets big in Indo, but nothing like as big as Hawaii, they reckon the size just keeps and going!

Those comments were made during and after the Bali mega-swell of a few years ago.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The wave cam driven software may deduce it though and save all the work. I'd be progamming it up though as well to check if the cam driven software came up with the same forecast. If it does the cam concept is proven. I'd throw in a few more hand coded spots to get a reasonable sample size for proof...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Honestly, this is why I like Kilojoules. Double overhead is about 3,000 kJs and the biggest swell I've been out in was 4,000 kJ and I was caught inside by a set and was thinking I may not survive. So when I was watching the 17,000 kJ swell in Bali a few years ago I knew it was probably unsurvivable ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

This is bit different, but the same. Bikes, but a big road gap, 30' wide, 20' deep both sides solid vertical rock walls both sided, everyone there one Sunday arvo, one downhill world champ, couple of state champs, all watching. There's a little 2' kicker on one side to launch, blow it and you go str...
