Calm most of the time, the Southern Adriatic Sea occasionally becomes very rough. "Jugo" ("South") weather first brings a rapid air pressure. Initially, waves become just longer, and then they gradually get bigger and bigger. A wind with a worm, moist air follows in about 12 hours. A day or two later weather clears and the wind and yet bigger waves turn Western (so called "Pulenat"). QWYX Home Page - Stranica sa objawnjenjem QWYX slova

Uglavnom miran, Jadran se s vremena na vreme popriliyno uzburka. Obiyno prvo naidqe Jugo koji donosi toplo i vlaxno vreme. Najavljuje se brzim padom vazduwnog pritiska i prvo poveqanom duxinom talasa, bez vidnog razloga, tj. bez vetra, a zatim sve veqim i veqim talasima. Dan-dva kasnije juxni vetar "prevrne" u zapadni, tzv. Pulenat. Najyewqe baw tada talasi budu najveqi.

"Climbing the Waves" "Penjanje na talase"

A unique way for young people showing off exists in Petrovac, called "Climbing the Waves". The point is to swim on the top of a wave when it hits the port, and to land on the port while avoiding becaming a pancake (smashed to a port's stone wall). Here is how it is accomplished (actually, how is the author showing-off):

U Petrovcu se momci (i poneka dqevojka) prave vaxni baveqi se jedinstvenim sportom - "penjanjem na talase". Vewtina se sastoji u tome da se skoyi sa pristaniwta u more i iskoristi za povratak talas koji udara u pristaniwte, a da se pri tom ne ostane zalepljen na kameni zid. Evo kako se to radi (tj. kako se autor pravi vaxan):
