The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 20 June 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Lumpy, bumpy, windblown waves and cold air do not make me want to go for a surf… So this week I haven’t. Yes there were times when the waves looked ok if you were young and fit, or silly, and the water temp is still ok (for the moment), but ’twas not for me. So I did other things.

This week I’ll be doing more ‘other things’ and you might want to do that on several days too (unless you’re a Hell Man), with colder air, bigger waves (at South spots) and wind to go with them… but conditions might get a little more civilised at some places  later in the week>>>

Friday:: around 2 ish metres at places open to dead South swell; some smaller waves might possibly get into protected corners, maybe

Saturday: up a bit say in the 2-3 metre range dead South; some smaller waves might get into protected corners

Sunday: ditto and should get into protected corners

Monday: ditto, and ditto for sets

Tuesday: around say 2 metres at dead South places, some into corners

Wednesday: easing back into the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South; some little ones might get around the corner

Thursday: around 1 metre or so South East

Friday: ditto East South East.

Stay warm, stay cool, stay safe.
