TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on March 23rd, 2017

Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 March 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

According to the radio yesterday, Sydney had 19 days in March (out of 22) that were wet… so make that 20/ 23 today.  Despite that, and a few severe Thunderstorms, the Beachwatch website suggests that most Sydney beaches are unlikely to be polluted today:

Great news!… Personally I’ll wait for a bit more sunshine to get onto the water. My own simple rule: If it looks dirty, it is dirty.

Surf:

Friday: about 2 metres, 2+ metres on the sets South East

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range South East, with occasional sets

Sunday: going down in the 1-2 metre range South East

Monday: about 1 metre or so East South East
