Re: Just general surfing stuff

I didn’t watch much of it, but some of Carissa’s waves were just very great surfing. So precise, controlled, fluid and radical. The top women were easily better than 80% of the men I saw.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Where I used to stay about 1km from the beach, some nights you could hear this thrilling deep wave rumble rolling across the land. This was just about always caused by the little slappers. The little slappers occur on still nights which partly explains the noise production.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Those small shore slappers seem to generate more of an epic night swell noise than actual big surf.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

No, fcuk the WSL, I think we should align ourselves with the ISA (International Surfing Association), They are apparently the governing body of surfing. Who knew!?

She does seem to get a bit rattled when she’s behind in heats these days

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Well, I always enjoy Kirra water shots. Being a SE Qlder, Kirra has been a surfing muse for a long time. Everytime I see film of good Kirra from the water, it evokes my whole memory vault of every time I’ve been out there and it’s firing. I’m back to being a wide-eyed teenager experiencing Kirra in ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I did enjoy this clip of Steph Gilmore at Kirra from this week which Nick included in his Gold Coast swell story.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That is a U.S. forecast, but it is funny, as Australia has been all metric for a very long time, Aussie surfers will keep describing surf heights in feet*. The foot is just such useful height unit. * odder still, given the fanciful surfer foot (non-imperial) which is a rather flexible measure depend...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I didn't look pumping. Ok, smallish conditions. Only 6 heats left to run. They will run on Tuesday, whatever the conditions Tuesday’s forecast Fading 6-10’ faces AM, easing. Light cross-offshore wind. SWELL/SURF: SW swell drops off through the day but is still solid in the morning with sets running ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I don’t think this CT was the worst ever. At least, there were plenty of waves ridden. The worst are when there are average waves with long lulls. Though, I didn’t watch when it went more onshore later in the day

Re: Just general surfing stuff

i was out at Snapper close to Jack Freestone throwing some big airs on an overhead day. The visual was something I’d become used to from clips, but I was surprised by the loudness of the noise as he blasted off the lip. The sound was thrilling.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Someone posted this Caio Ibelli instagram link on Swellnet. Caio is saying it’s his first wave at North Narra for 10 years. Good memories. Coming 3rd in his debut on the international stage in a junior contest. His first wave there in 10 years is a pretty decent wave! https://www.instagram.com/p/CNj...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’m a Fanno fan, but I have zero desire to see him surf another heat. What’s the point?
I also reckon this cameo wasn’t Fanno’s idea.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Gee whiz, the rumour is true. Mick Fanning will be competing as a wildcard in the WSL’s Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic. Not very forward looking. It will capture a few eyeballs though. Louis Hynd and Jacob Willcox (Rip Curl’s other male aussie surfers who aren’t already competing) will be a bit disappoi...
