TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on October 12th, 2017

Surf forecast issued Thursday 12 October 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

While I was avoiding a seal in the surf here last week, Wazza was swimmng in Hawaii and there was a seal on the beach there…   What’s going on??? Huh???  The lifeguards marked out an area around it to avoid an unfortunate incident.

A welcome drop of overnight rain followed by a pleasantly warm, sunny day today.  Almost perfect except there was no surf.  Then this arvo a fresh SE change blew through… Will it blow up some surf?? I hear you ask through my speakers… The answer is:

Not really… well maybe a little something, and there could be more of a little something later

Friday: about 1 metre South East

Saturday: about 1 metre or so East South East, with maybe a little pulse from due South from time to time

Sunday: about 1 metre at places that like dead South swell, with sets that are a little bigger

Monday: coming up in the 1-2 metre range East/ South East

Tuesday: upper end of the 1-2 metre range East South East

Wednesday: ditto and more East

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range North East.

Have a good one

Down in the Water

Water temp is around 19 mostly, trying hard to get to 20. As far as I’m concerned it’s not trying hard enough.  Maybe this weekend…
