Over 30 years of surfing and have never yet once had to think about not rely upon “kilojoules” to figure out what’s going with conditions. Pretty sure that’s the same for about 99.9999% of the global surfing community. There’s only one forecasting site using the measurement. Try find another. There isn’t. That in itself tells you all you need to know. It’s to be giggled and guffawed at mercilessly.

I don’t care less about cranked. I am talking about the topic. It’s a ludicrous equation.

Will you now use it? Do you think it will help? How on earth have you managed without it until now?

Oh wait...

This suggests it’s not worth going for a surf

I just don’t get why anyone gives a shit what Cranked uses. I think it’s really just a case of internet trolls trying pass themselves off as old guard self appointed surfing experts to massage their egos.
Surfing for over 30years? I’ve been surfing for 55 years and only ever used the little black and white map of Aust.in the newspaper for most of it, until recently. So what?
This continued obsession with Cranked and pictures of him and his wife in Bali, his choice of surfboard construction and now this, is going to get someone a TOTY.

You might be right MM, but the other side of the coin is Cranked putting it out there, copping a bit of flak and then defending himself to the death over it.

It's up to him of course, but if you put shitt up on a surfing forum and you can't cop a bit of ribbing over it, maybe it ain't such a good idea.

He seems to cope OK with it though, gives at least as good as he gets....no harm no foul?

He also posts plenty of stuff, maybe the majority, that gets nothing but hoots and shakas.

Looked good for a swim. Only the desperates would paddle out today.
Last Monday was Fcuking great though. It was so consistent for a while I let about five excellent waves go with no takers to wait for the extra perfect one. That's after just paddling back out and hitting the next set for another wave about five times in a row. Stoked. Similar for about four days last week as well.......and that's after three days of maxing long walls at Crescent the week before. Equalled my previous biggest, longest ride ever there about five times. :-D-:

I don’t care what cranked uses. If it’s working for him, so be it. What pictures? And tuflites are rubbish. And if they’re working for him, so be that.

I have zero concern for cranked. I’m saying the kJ measurement is superfluous. irrespective of whether or not there’s any science to it. Swell height-direction-period-fetch should be enough to go off to gauge size/power. If not, then surely by now, kJ would be mainstream. Or at the very least be used somewhere else as well, not just forecast-surf dot com or whatever it is

There is no “other side of the coin” with Cranked, he’s a good honest contributor on here.
