Pro as in sponsored to free surf or on the tour. Definitely not on the tour.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Oh, surfs good. It’s just an aesthetic thing on my part. Kind of long body motion. He looks good in some surf.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I think Beany just goes down to the beach and has a look. It’s terrible behaviour, I know. :D :D I’m amazed we could even surf at all before the internet saved us, with it’s periods and such :D Got that right The Marauding. It does give the surf forecasters something to talk about though.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Old school surf forecasts involved looking at isometric charts and seeing how far away the low was. Further away by default meant longer period but so what? Unless you are somewhere like Indo, Fiji or Hawaii it’s largely irrelevant to the average punter. Are you suggesting swell period is irrelevan...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Thanks for the heads up, Trev. Who needs to know more than wave heights, wind direction and tides?
ISO Charts for long range.
I reckon I could still look at Cook Island and have a fair idea of everywhere that would have a wave between Burleigh and Lennox Head.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's based on period. You’d think Bean’s would have understood that after surfing for 84 years. Well, yeah, nah. Apart from obviously powerful building swells and lazy dying swells and ground swells vs wind swells I have remained blissfully ignorant of the subtleties of swell period. I just tend to...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yep, really been treating surfing as mainly an exercise program lately. Conditions have been marginal. It’s been worthwhile though. Making the most of the bath warm water temps.
