The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on January 10th, 2019

Surf forecast issued Thursday 10 January 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

All that huffing and puffing today won’t bring up much surf, but there should be waves of varying sorts all week for those still on holiday.  A few wind changes, but some more warm weather ahead to.

I can sympathise with those who had to go back to work this week. Last night I had a terrible dream. I was driving round and around and couldn’t find a damn parking spot in Manly to catch the ferry to work.

Proving that things always look better in the morning… when I woke up I remembered that I’m retired!  Haha.

Surf outlook:

Friday 11/1: in the 1-2 metre range South East/East, easing back through the day

Saturday: as a Noreaster picks up so will the surf, somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East… might be some little sets from Eastish

Sunday: change in direction again with the wind .. somewhere in the 1-2 metre range South East, with maybe occasional sets from the East

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places..not much elsewhere

Tuesday:  1-2 metre range East South East

Wednesday: 1-2 metre range Eastish

Thursday: 1-2 metre range East North East.

Enjoy, if you’re on holidays.

If you’ve gotta go to work… earn some money for your next holiday :
