The Last of Nock-Ten

Nock-Ten moved pretty quickly west over Hainan, but still gave us four days of good surf.  This is the last of it, in Dadonghai, when the sun finally came out.

洛坦的行动很快就从海南的西边方向移开,但是我们还可以连续冲四天浪。这是大东海最后的一天有浪,而且太阳也终于的出来了。

Darci’Blog “Luotan” ” 洛坦”

“洛坦”是2011年的第一个台风直接袭击到海南岛的, 这次台风是从菲律宾传过来的,是从海岛的东面开始登陆的,岛上东海岸在前两天就已经有很好的浪了,大东海从昨天下午才开始有浪的。昨天下午的浪尺寸还不错但是因为风的原因影响了浪的形状变得很乱,今天早上10中左右“洛坦”就离开了这里,所以现在没什么风了,下午退潮后浪可能变得更好。

“Luotan” the first typhoon directly hits to Hainan in 2011, The typhoon passed over from the Philippine, hits to the east of the island first, so there’s swells at east coast from two days ago, but Dadonghai only start to pick up yesterday afternoon, the waves is ok , but because the wind waves are to messy, this morning around 10 “Luotan” left , so now it’s not too windy and afternoon lowtide the waves will be better.

July 29th 2011年07月29日 Typhoon Update – 台风更新

Dadonghai is still flat but some locals have told me that yesterday some spots in the east coast went off.

According to the forecast, this late afternoon the swell might change direction from north-east to west, and tomorrow it should turned to south swell. The wind shouldn’t get stronger than 10 knots. This means that we might get some pretty good waves at Dadonghai soon. Check out the following  Magicseaweed Swell Chart Maps:

大东海是仍然风平浪静,但有本浪手告诉我昨天在东岸线有很好的浪。

据预测,今天下午浪会从东北到西南转向,明天浪讲转向从南方来的浪。风力速度不会超过10,看来我们可能会有些好浪。看看下面的预报图:

July 27th, 2011年7月27日

No two ways about it. It is flat today. Not California ‘flat’, where there is still a ridable wave in the water. Hainan ‘flat’, meaning like a lake. But Typhoon Nock-ten is still looking good to produce some waves for us. She will come really close to Hainan, if not hit us directly, so we will definitely suffer from a day or two of blown out madness. But if you are able to make it down to Hainan this weekend, come join the madness!

毫无疑问,今天大东海有是平的。并不是加的的“平”,在加州人说浪是平的其实是有些小浪可以冲的,海南的“平”,意思就是平的跟湖一样,但是台风洛坦来了,看起来能带给我们一些好浪。她这次离我们很近,如果不直接到我们这,那我们就绝对能有一两天是疯狂的冲到精疲力尽。如果这个周末你能来海南,来加入我们一起疯狂吧!

 

Weekend forecast: Typhoon waves! – 周末预测:台风的浪!

There is a typhoon coming from Philippines that should hit Hainan on Friday for the whole weekend, so get ready and book your tickets to the Island.

台风从菲律宾再来,它周五应该到来海南在整个周末。所以你们在准备预订你们的到三亚票去冲浪吗?

According to the forecast, a 4m southwest swell will hit Dadonghai from Saturday to Sunday; with low wind on Saturday morning and off-shore winds on Sunday afternoon. Although on Monday the swell will decrease to half of the size, the wind will completely die so we reckon that it will be the cleanest day. We will report an update later on the week.
