The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on August 23rd, 2018

Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 August 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Forecasts may be intermittent for a little while… depends whether there’s access to wifi wherever I am and whether I’ve got the time to do a forecast or send a postcard while I’m having fun!  Will obviously check in from time to time to see who our Prime Minister is this week.

In the meantime… the swell is still hanging in there at pretty much dead South 2-3 metres offshore, mostly going straight past but with enough of a period for it to be getting into the places that like that kind of thing….though is starting to turn a little more South East, so more will start to come in.

And it looks like there might be a few drops of water falling from the skies over the coming days… but not enough for the farmers unless there’s more to come later.

The waves~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Friday: up from today – around 2 metres or so South East, easing back a little later

Saturday: then up again to around 2 ish metres East South East

Sunday: then down again in the 1-2 metre range East

Monday: down more to around 1 metre or so East South East

Tuesday: dead South swell starting to come up from a Low expected to develop off the far South Coast… say in the 1-2 metre range at dead South friendly spots, with most going straight past  (don’t jump in the car, Don)… bigger outside…not enough period to get in, then…

Wednesday: easing back in the 1-2 metre range dead South, most still going past

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East, but more coming ashore.

Sad news about Bob, a regular at Little Av, which is never a wave for the faint hearted.

Goodness it’s hard to know where to go to get warm … Earthquake rumblings in Indo.. Hurricanes off Hawaii…

Talk when I can… Miss you already 🙂

Water temp

Woo…it’s gone down from 17 off Sydney at the weekend to 15.7  — which is decidedly chilly on my scale.  With some Noreasters forecast over the weekend it could get even chillier.

Just look at that East Coast Current and how its complex whirrings affect your water temp>>>
