Look ahead a bit further with wxmaps.org/pix/prec7.html though the further 7 days changes a bit more with the way further out.

Howdy Turbo,

Yay ! great to talk to a fellow surfer. Yeah I am at work in Angola now, I always keep a close eye on the surf via the net. Its guarenteed to pump while I am at work !!! The is a swell wave link on weatherzone on the left column which is great for planning surfaris. I also use swellnet.

I love Streaky Bay the best. Of course I cant show all the secret spots here ! but I knew some of them would of been going off !!! Some great dunes there for the fourby too.
Hoping for some tube time when I get home. Catch a few waves for me Turbo while I am away.(((((((((((((((((((())))))))))))))))))))))

Later TPM \,[[[[,/

Hey Turbo,

Where do you surf normally, What vehicle and board are you riding ? I'll keep an eye out for you.

I always surf alone, a extra bit of bait in the water may reduce the shark ratio !!!! : )))

What sort of work do you do TPM, if I may ask?

Hey TPM,

Worked off Angola for 12 months myself in 1998/1999 for Texaco doing seismic surveys. Did 9 years of 6 weeks on, 6 off.... damn I miss them holidays. Oh well, price you pay for getting married.

www.buoyweather.com/virtualbuoy.html is an excellent site for swell and wave height. Accurate as well. We used it for day to day planning on the ship.

On the downhill side of your trip now matey - almost single figures. Enjoy your break.

Cheers,

Wazza.

Also see a trail weather service using the lastest BOM feed data available - Not yet released for all - I was lunky enought to find a reference and made contact with the BOM project leader and now we have these maps online. I am going to build a much better service but for now we have Satellie IR, Forecast and rain radars displayed live in real time at www.exploroz.com/states/default.asp you can also see a break down of each state in the states pages that link from the above page.
