it's not even dry fly fishing getting a rise out of you over Magic Seaweed Godsave.

it's quite touching the way you defend their honour against the colonials.

Would it be fair to say that Magic Seaweed is using broadsword technology in a musket world?

Oh I’m very ambivalent about magic seaweed. Yet you seem to want to use it but don’t understand what it’s trying to tell you. Think of me as a mediator, a hostage negotiator. We’ll crack this, you’ll see

I think the name says it all. I mean everyone knows seaweed isn’t magic (right?)

I understand it , I just think it's as useless as tits on a bull.
You don't seem to understand the reasons why it is offering useless information.

no matter, all the euros will be out there Friday on their epoxy Firewire getting pitched.

It’s saying pretty much the same as all the other forecast sites. You just dismiss it out of hand because you can’t bear to be told by the hated Pom

So, to be clear, 15.5 Pommy magic marshgrass feet will be 7.75 Aussie he man feet?

Currently, with few exceptions, automated surf prediction web sites do not over predictions based on local bathymetry nor specific local wind conditions.

Most surfers realise this and apply their local knowledge.

Surf Forecast has 10 stars for Lennox Friday morning with 9492kj.

Could you translate that into something for me Cranked?

Steve, I don't have any local knowledge for Lennox.

I read a few weeks ago that a prediction site in the NE US is adding bathymetric impact to their local model, and the organisation's responsible for the virtual wave buoys are set to halve the buoy area very soon.

They expect these two changes to significantly enhance surf site prediction accuracy.

As for the kJ, for what its worth, last years big Ulus swell was 17,000kJ

OK, but based on those numbers what would you expect Cranked?

20' faces. A large swell acceptable and accessable for most of the local big wave surfers. So 20-30 in the line-up, rather than just the handfull that attacked the big Ulus swell

I dunno but I hope it is big, I’m sick of these half cocked south swells with their fetches that fall over and point toward some other fcuken coastline.
