The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on February 7th, 2019

Surf forecast issued Thursday 7 February 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

If you’ve been lucky enough to catch a wave… then you’ve been lucky enough to catch a wave!

The outlook is for continuing variable wind directions, so there’s not much chance of a swell building. But.. there should be enough movement in the water, at the right tide, at the right place…and if you’re lucky enough to be there, you might be lucky enough to catch a wave! And.. as a bonus here’s an eight day forecast for you 🙂

Probably best at mid to lowish tides – but not too low to be sandbank accident potential – on:

Friday: say around 1-1+ metres East North East

Saturday: around 1-1+ metres East North East

Sunday: changing direction to a little something at dead South places with wind too

Monday: around 1-1+ metres East

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range North East at southern ends, as the Noreaster picks up

Wednesday: around 1-1+ metres North East

Thursday: ditto South East

Friday: ditto ditto.

Stay Safe. Have Fun.
