Okay so brag away you Westie and knife me re Swanny GT2 those damned Eagles it's not the GF yet that last Collingwood vs Eagles GF I drew a cartoon of a magpie eating an Eagle wonder where I put that Ha! I'm happy to share it with you
That's a SLAB that wave you posted surely not Margies where is it? Its a towie wave for sure. The ripples were head high yesterday here and fun small barrels I don't do tow in myself hahaaaa geez your posts make me smile GT2
Actually that slab you posted is a good metaphor for interferon erghhhh. I would defs wipe out and I did on peginf lol!!
Have a look at my avatar that's a couple of weeks ago we are just getting swell after swell in Vicco.
Hey, Tasmania..... If you are in Hobart head down to Shippies because the fellas are towing there like huge waves
I'm fascinated by tow in surfing it's another league and they seriously risk their lives have a listen to Ross Clarke Jones on it or Greg Noll of course
See what's happening GT2 once I am wound up on surf I cannot stop! Argh
Anyhoo the thing is how much can you take in wiping out? Surfer Today explains it:
" Big waves are surely heavy. If you want to get an overall weight for your specific wave, you can roughly memorize that a cubic meter of water (1000 liters) weighs one metric tonne (1000 kilograms). How about that?
Example: a 33-foot (10-meter) wave with a falling lip that is 66-feet (20-meters) wide will mean that, if you wipeout, you'll feel the equivalent of 410 tonnes (410000 kilograms) over your body. That's the weight of 488 Volkswagen Beetles (1967 model)!
Another example from the average surfer's perspective: imagine a 20-inch (50 centimeter) thick wave lip, only 3.2 feet wide, in a summer three-foot wave. Total weight? A solid 500 kilograms (1100 pounds)."
My preference is 3-6 foot and they are more than capable of holding me down if the swell period is over 14 seconds! I don't wipe out much but I feel it when I do
Love the pic GT2
Not forgetting the Collingwood thing gawd I wish we could rip those Eagles throats out
Cheers and have a great day and Ty for writing back such a fun rsvp
