The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on April 12th, 2018

Surf forecast issued Thursday 12 April 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

There’s been a bit of hot air blowing our way from the inland of the Continent – Did you just say: ‘There must be a political convention on out there!’ … ‘I didn’t know they’d moved Canberra’ – Dear oh dear… Of course they haven’t moved it. The hot air is only temporarily coming from that direction.  Now, don’t you get me started.

The ocean has been agitated too… sometimes small, sometimes big..sometimes good, sometimes bad… It’ll probably be settling down soon into a bit more of a routine in the lead up to the school holidays.

Friday: down more from today, in the 1-2 metre range East South East, with some little sets

Saturday: around the low end of the 1-2 metre range North East and South East, still with an occasional pulse

Sunday: low end 1-2 metre range North East and South East

Monday: about 1 metre North East

Tuesday: about 1 metre at places that get dead South swell

Wednesday: up slightly in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places

Thursday: down to around 1 metre at dead South places.

Happy Birthday to Mark Morrisey
