Dee Why today

Magic Seaweed - very small waves 1-2 ft - 10 sec intervals
Surf Forecast - 5-6ft - 400-500 Kilojoules
Swellnet - 3ft with a 10 sec interval

Swellnet closest
Arrrgggggfftt. This is what I've been trying to convey to people Thud, 400-500kJ is 2-3 foot faces not 5-6', 1000kJ is 5-6' faces, kJs are a more reliable indicator of breaking wave sizes than the swell forecast wave height. Short period wave heights will over call it, long period wave heights will under call.

Seems to be travelling OK for this though.

Steve, I didn't think it was passive-aggressive. Sarcastic is what I'd call it.

Cranked, the brains trust has spoken.
The fact that you have spent 6 months a year for the last 4 years on the Bukit and have found you can get a quite reliable sense of the swell at Impossibles from Surf-Forecast's kjs forecast.....well, you are clearly wrong. Wake up to yourself, buddy.
:lol:

Ive used surf forecast for a few place over the years and it's fked.

You know what Cranked. Enjoy your fking Kjs. Are we done now?

No.
Surely a powerful 3ft wave is better than a 6ft burger?
Therefore kjs wins.
Now we done.
Erase.

Oh god Thud spare me. Out of the frying pan and into the fire. I was just ruminating on whether to take my two epoxy boards (7' and 8' nuggests, both unridden but I've owned both previously). No I'm not going there.

Steve. I found somewhere you can carry on the discussion :lol:

What’s the forum live over their godsave? I was looking at an older thread on 2+1s, some nice boards.
