The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on November 23rd, 2017

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

Mother Nature has heard you all cry out: Onshore! again! day after day.

But she’s misheard that as: Encore! again!  The wind has drowned you out while she’s conducting her symphony of the elements.   So could you please all speak more distinctly in future.

In the meantime, she’s already programmed in a bit more of the same, thinking that’s what you want.

With the onshores has come some marginal to tiny surf… But some pretty fabulous weather, and the water has warmed back up a little.  It ain’t all that bad.

If you’ve been able to jag a wave at the right tide, then stay alert and grab it when you can.

The surf outlook for the week ahead:

Friday: around 1 metre or so East

Saturday: around 1 metre or so East North East

Sunday: ever so slightly up into the low end 1-2 metre range East North East

Monday: somewhere in lower end of the 1-2 metre range East North East

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: somewhere in the low end of the 1-2 metre range North East

Thursday: ditto.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends, here or there, and to everyone who likes a good turkey!

Heard of a worthy cause this morning … Saturday 5 k walk to raise money for research to cure brain cancer in young people. 8.30am registration at Shelley Beach Manly for pleasant walk to North Curl Curl.

So the surf’s not perfect. There’s still an awful lot to be thankful for.

Stay well.. Have fun!
