The Goat’s First Surf Forecast for 2019

Posted by: on January 3rd, 2019

The Goat’s First Surf Forecast for 2019:

22nd year of TG’s Forecasts:

Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Some variations in wind direction ahead for the coming week to give you a little variety, and hopefully some small to medium rideable waves.

But this arvo, (an Aussie word whose meaning is unknown to all those foreign visitors, so use it at will just to confuse ’em), a gentle onshore breeze, warm sun and background music of cicadas provided the perfect opportunity to kick back in the shade, chill out and recuperate from days of surfing or paddling, and nights of refreshments and socialising.

It’s been congested in the ocean – one more area to add to the list – but hey kids, I think I just heard mum say you should take a few days off out of the sun now.

I will give those thousands of visitors a helpful tip (as apparently they aren’t aware)…

Barrenjoey Road to Palm Beach is a Dead End Road. It’s not a Through Road… It’s a Cul de Sac.

And there’s nowhere for thousands of visitors to park… anywhere..

Just so you know why you’ve been stopped or crawling in traffic from Mona Vale.

A Community Service Announcement by TG.

Water temp has been bouncing around from nice to freezing with consistent Noreasters dragging cold water up, to ? It should improve when the next southerly comes by.

Waves:

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East.. biggest at southern ends of beaches

Saturday: ditto

Sunday: ditto

Monday: around 1 metre or so Eastish

Tuesday: ditto to that

Wednesday: around 1 – 1+metres North East

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range North East/ South East

Hope 2019 is good to us all!
