During his time as Director General, the ISA experienced tremendous growth in ISA events, expanded its educational programs, and ISA membership grew from 57 to 86 nations.

  • HURLEY PRO Forecast From

  • Going further out, we will see a stronger, long period SW swell (220-205) for the back half of the waiting period (15th-19th) from a storm now cranking away near New Zealand. The good news is that this storm has been very impressive thus far with a large fetch of satellite recorded wind of 45-60 knots and seas of 40-45’+. The not so good news is that we will see some shadowing by Tahiti/French Polynesia, which will strip away some size and consistency.
  • We’re still looking at a good swell, however, with very long period energy (22 second+) building slowly through the day on Monday the 15th, a peak in swell on Tue/Wed the 16th-17th and then slowly easing swell on the 18th all the way through the end of the waiting period.
  • At this point we’re looking at surf running in the head high to a couple feet+ overhead range at Lowers, with some larger sets not out of the question from late Monday all the way through Wednesday. Thur/Fri will be slowly fading from earlier in the week, but still have overhead sets (especially Thursday). Stay tuned, we’ll refine this forecast further over the next few days as we track this swell through the South Pacific.
  • One other thing that we’ll want to watch out for is further activity in the tropics as some of the long range models indicate that we’ll see something flare up off of Baja later this week and this weekend. Although there is considerable uncertainty in this forecast at the moment, it does look like we could see more SE/SSE swell around the same time as the Southern Hemisphere mentioned directly above (Tue-Thur).

  • Damien Hobgood joins 100 Wave Challenge Sept 20th

  • I’m very close to my fundraising goal of $10K i need listeners to step up and help me get to the goal; every little bit helps
    got to and search for surfer Scott Bass and then donate on my page.

  • Duke: All around great guy and excellent shaper Wayne Rich who won his 50 59 age division at the MSA contest in pumping 1st point Malibu; and gave the glory to his Higher Power on the awards stage!

    Kook: The judges who apparently missed one of my waves in the final; as I had a two wave total of only 8.23 ; which frankly should have been the score for my first wave.
