Could be fun early

Posted on February 28th, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,
As of 0640 wind was light from the WSW and the MHL buoy was showing 1.3 metres of 8-sec SSE bump. Magnets should be in the waist to chest range and wind should be okay until late morning, when it’ll get around to the NE. Tide is dropping to a low at 1130.
Outlook is for there to be something surfable in the mornings for the next few days. The models are currently predicting an improvement to swell power from around Sunday. If they’re right, the front half of next week could be interesting at east swell spots, particularly in the mornings… wonder what the Goat’ll say on the topic…

Still waiting for swell in California, so herewith a few snaps from a train ride I took yesterday along the coast between Ventura and Santa Barbara.

The mighty Rincon slumbers on, waiting for the next swell

Homeless encampments like this one near California Street, Ventura are not uncommon on public land close to cities here.

Weather Situation
A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is extending a ridge to the New South Wales coast. This pattern is expected to persist into next week, bringing east to northeasterly winds to the coastal waters. The winds will tend to the north and strengthen in the southern coastal waters later on Saturday and into Sunday as a trough approaches NSW.

Forecast for Thursday until midnight
Winds
Northeasterly 10 to 15 knots.
Seas
Below 1 metre.
1st Swell
Southerly around 1 metre.
2nd Swell

Keen only need apply

Posted on February 26th, 2019 in At large.

Hello friends,
Swell energy in Sydney continued to fade overnight and at first light magnets looked to be maybe knee to waist – on the big ones. Wind was lightly offshore for the early and tide was running out to the low at 0900. You can expect a mostly sunny day with a high of 27 along the beaches. Water temp’s at 25C according to Beachwatch. In the middle of the night the Sydney MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 metres of 7-8 second stuff from the SSE (150 degrees).
With any luck, the swell shouldn’t fade to zero over the remainder of the week, but from the look of the models it may not be much above marginal at most places most of the time.
California’s wave drought continues. It seems to be pretty much flat from Santa Cruz to LA, but with some tiny knee plusses south from there to the border. There does however seem to be a slight hope for an improvement in coming days. Who knows, I may get in the water yet…

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is gradually weakening as a cold front passes to the south today and tomorrow. This will bring a southerly change to southern parts of the coast from late tonight and during Wednesday before a new high moves across from the west. The new high is then expected to stall over the Tasman Sea from late Wednesday, maintaining a ridge along the New South Wales coast for the remainder of the week.

Forecast for Tuesday until midnight

Winds
North to northeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the early afternoon.

Surf’s still lumpy bumpy and horrible with tide too low at most places… and the wind is onshore.  Only for the desperates.

Hello Friends,

Looks like another scrappy you-could-surf-if-you-were-really-keen sort of day in Sydney. Magnet spots should deliver chest plusses, but the overall conditions are fairly marginal. For starters, the ESE wind was already 10-13 kts at 0730 under cloudy skies. As of 0400 the MHL’s directional spectrum chart for Sydney was showing a mix of NNE and SSE swell, with the latter very much dominating. First tide of the day is the low at 0755. You’re back to a moderate 1.4 m high at 1355. By then the Bureau says you can expect a light NE’r to have taken over from the SE stuff. Ocean temp is a very warm 25C according to Beachwatch, although run-off from weekend rain may put a question mark over water quality at some beaches.

The story in California remains dire for surfing. Weather is perfect but there is barely a hint of a wave from Santa Cruz south. Looks like the best place to be is somewhere in the vicinity of Trestles – again.

Trestles is likely one of the better spots for a wave this morning in California

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near Tasmania is drifting slowly east, as ex-Tropical Cyclone Oma continues northwards over the Coral Sea. Later today the high will shift to the central Tasman Sea, where it will linger during Tuesday. This system will weaken on Wednesday as a cold front passes to the south, allowing a trough to move along southern parts of the New South Wales coast, but will quickly be replaced by a new high moving across from the west. The new high is expected to be very slow-moving and should remain the dominant feature in the region for a number of days.

Forecast for Monday until midnight

Winds
East to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots becoming east to northeasterly about 10 knots in the afternoon.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres, decreasing below 1 metre during the morning.

Saturday Surf Report

Posted on February 23rd, 2019 in At large.
​T​he Bureau’s forecast is for TC Oma to move offshore a little and track north again for a couple of days. But Cyclones can change directions, as this one has, and are notoriously difficult to track​.​
In any event, the main swell we are getting in Sydney now, and the waves coming over the next couple of days will be from weather systems down south, so we’ll get southerly swell.  The problem is that accompanying those waves are southerly winds…
So while there will be waves today and tomorrow they will be messy and bumpy at places exposed to the south.
But there may be some opportunities at places protected from southerly winds, like the Manly- Queenscliff stretch… But if that’s any good it’ll be crowded.. and could be dangerous at lower tides. ​Anyone can slip on their board and end up in hospital or worse.​
Low tide was around 6am
High is around midday
Low again around 6.30pm
And there’s nearly one and a half metre difference between high and low tides at the moment with the full moon.
Water temp is around 22
​There’s about 2.5-4 metres of dead South swell offshore, but​ on the beach it’s currently around 1-2 metres, 2ish metres​ of messy bumpy waves at open beaches​ ​. It’ll increas​e through the day from South East​ but the southerly wind will also increase.
​Only chances are sheltered corners and not much will be getting into those.​
The outlook:

Sunday: 2-3, 3-4 metres at places exposed to the South  (but with SE winds, so bumpy messy uninviting etc)

Note the BoM’s warning: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing.

{That will be at places that are exposed to the South}

Surf Life Saving NSW recommends only swimming at patrolled beaches and between the red and yellow flags.

{That’s if they’re up!  If the flags aren’t up, the beach is closed for reasons of public safety.  In which case unless you’re very experienced it will be best to stay out of the water}

Monday: 3-4 metres East South East

Tuesday: 2-3 metres East South East

Wednesday: 2-3 metres East North East, with sets (wind expected to be lighter.. might start to be ok)

Thursday: 2-2+ metres East North East

ALL SUBJECT TO CHANGE as the spinning tops move around

Take care. Stay safe.

​And s​peaking of Surf Life Saving…it’s always a good idea to know what to do if you or a mate need help in the surf, from a shark attack to resuscitating someone who has nearly drowned… and you can get the necessary info and training from a surf club.  But did you ever think that those skills can be used in situations away from the beach?

Recently a probationary surf club member successfully resuscitated a man who had a heart attack playing futsal at a local RSl..
Cain Byrnes of Avalon Beach SLSC had been training for only two weeks yet was able to save someone’s life.  The National SLSA surf club of the year will be running free training sessions for the public on CPR on 13 March 2019… details at www.avalonbeachslsc.com.au
Also check at your local surf club. As Nick Carroll says: surf clubs need surfers, and surfers​ ​need surf clubs. Both have a lot to offer each other!

Choppy, bumpy, windy

Posted on February 23rd, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,

As I often say on ABC radio when it looks like this, it’s a real doona day. Wind is sideshore from the SSW at 10-15 kts as of first light. But it’ll pick up and swing SE as the morning goes along. And that won’t help the scrappy 2.3 metre, 8-second, SSE swell. Not that it matters much, but tide is coming in this morning to a midday high.

Looks as though the Bureau expects some of that cyclonic oomph to appear tomorrow. Unfortunately the wind will be strong and SE for Sydney. Bad luck.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, California is seeing just a tiny touch more swell around the place this morning. It’s now into the just barely surfable range at many spots but with sideshores. A few postcards…

Big excitement at the Pit, Santa Barbara

Weather Situation

A strengthening high pressure system near Tasmania is drifting slowly east, while Tropical Cyclone Oma lies about 600km off the southern Queensland coast. This pattern is generating south to southeasterly winds over New South Wales waters, strong to gales force in the north due to the presence of Oma. Conditions should ease gradually on Sunday as Oma moves away to the north and the high shifts to the Tasman Sea. This high is expected to become the dominant feature in the region through the coming week, bringing a gradual shift from southeast to northeasterly winds in most coastal areas.

Forecast for Saturday until midnight

SW early, SE later

Posted on February 22nd, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,
As of 0720 the wind was lightish and from the SW, but it won’t last long. Pretty soon the wind will be coming from the SE, just like the showers wafting in from that direction. Not a nice morning and while it’s getting crazy up north from the Oma energy, Sydney is currently seeing 2.7 metres from the SSE at 8 seconds. From the cams it looks pretty lumpy and disorganised with size in the shoulder-head high range at magnets. As for the week ahead, well, it looks like a complicated story. The Goat has ruminated upon the prospects and yesterday offered his take on the possibility of our seeing something vaguely reasonable from all the storm energy boiling around off the east coast.

As for California, it’s still flat to micro everywhere from Santa Cruz to San Diego. But here are a couple of Surfline cam sourced postcards for your amusement…

You could have had Malibu to yourself…

Weather Situation

A strengthening high pressure system to the west of Tasmania will move slowly east over the next couple of days, establishing south to southeasterly winds through most coastal areas. Winds and seas in the north increase today and through the weekend due to the presence of Tropical Cyclone Oma in the region.

Forecast for Friday until midnight

Easterly 1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres during the afternoon.
2nd Swell
Southerly 1 to 1.5 metres, decreasing to around 1 metre during the morning.

TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted on February 22nd, 2019 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 21 February 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

TC Oma is up north but is affecting the weather and surf outlook depending on where she decides to go and the interaction with a High and a Low down south. At the moment she’s tracking here

  1. She can always change her mind but based on the present situation the surf outlook for here (it’ll be bigger and messier up north, but could get nasty in  a lot of places) … The weather here has that tropical feel to it but Note the direction of the main swell for us in Sydney.. mainly from the south/east south east than coming down from Oma up north. Interesting days ahead:

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places and starting to come up from the south during the day

Saturday: 1-2 metres, 2ish metres and increasing through the day East South East

Sunday: 2-3, 3-4 metres at dead South places

Note the BoM warning: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing. Surf Life Saving NSW recommends only swimming at patrolled beaches and between the red and yellow flags. (That’s if they’re up!)

Monday: 3-4 metres East South East

Tuesday: 2-3 metres East South East

Wednesday: 2-3 metres East North East, with sets

Thursday: 2-2+ metres East North East

Yeah, naw

Posted on February 21st, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,

The numbers tell the story for Sydney this morning. At 0600 North Head was seeing 13-19 kts of SSE wind. At 0300 the MHL buoy was detecting 2.3 metres of 7-sec SSE wind swell. The weather radar at Terry Hills was picking up showers off to the NE. So, I’d say you can write this one off and then check back later to see what the Goat has to say about prospects for next week (maybe mid-week?)

No better here in Santa Barbara, or most of the rest of California. The only place I spotted a wave on the cams was at Pismo Beach (about 2 hours north of where I am) which was offering feeble waist plusses. Santa Cruz was flat and so was Windandsea in San Diego… you’re missing nada!
