So, everybody's seen that wave now,

over and over and over.

And it's the same size every time,

so, 

How many goats?  Body parts?  Feet (not the body part)?  Centimeters?

Calibration study?

 

edit:  don't want to prejudice this study with my own opinion; but....,

I'd say that around two goats or so.

Originally posted by: Cole Kids who have never seen an ocean will crave riding waves like we all do and some will rip. Watching them transition to actual ocean waves will be a hoot. Their contests will differ from what we are used too, but I'm sure some of out local rippers wouldn't mind scoring some cash from a land locked contest. Within ten years there will be millions of new surfers and in-turn, a deserved boom for the struggling surf industry. Truck loads of boards from QF, Neilson and R&D headed for Kansas. I think it's a big win for everyone.

Your kidding right? You want even more crowded lineups than we already have? Now we will have pool kooks coming to surf the ocean with no idea of surf edicate.

 Don't get me wrong I would love to have a pool here locally to beat those flat summer days and to train in before traveling to a real wave.

Some of the surf companies used to rent the pool in the mornings while the expo was running and due to the party atmosphere, very few would make the 7:00 am start time, so I've done the track deal and you are 100% correct, it is a hell of a workout. We finally talked them into letting us stay in the water to wait for the next wave, which was good, because I was near anaerobic death.

e11even, I don't see many crowds at all, but then again, I avoid RC's, High Tower and the like on the good days and even if they do increase numbers, they won't be used to paddling, so I don't think they will be much competition.

One thing is that it looks like the wave starts out less than head high and then jacks up to over head as it gets going. Reminds of Ponce when the rocks take off eventually jacks up further down the beach on a day where you can connect it through.

This wave seems to be about head high on Gerry Lopez,

which means that it would be head high on me too,

and also on that guy that owns the place.

lopez

 

I equate this size to about 4-5' and 8-10 seconds (two goats) on the 20 miler in cleaned up conditions.   

Not that it happens that often...

You are right Cole they wont be much competition but they will be a constant obstacle and dropping in on people.  I do surf RC's and the better spots and its getting rediculous on the good swells. We will see how this all unfolds.

My favorite surfers of all time in chronological order:

Gerry Lopez
Shaun Tomson
Tom Curren
Ke11y

Gerry, being the oldest obviously, and riding the youngest's wave pool gliding that left hand smoothly over the lip ... stylemaster.

Actually would love to see Claude Codgen surf it. Come on Ke11y, give him the invite!
