The Goat’s Surf Forecast

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 31 October 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Very small today, but at the right tide with the right board it’s amazing at times to watch what young/fit agile people can make of what little is available and have fun, which is after all the object of surfing.

Very smokey hazy and foggy early, then just the smoke haze, now seems to have mostly cleared away. But the Bureau expects it to be back tomorrow, then after a fresh Noreaster which should clear the smoke on Sat and Sun morning the forecast is, hey hey, for rain at times.. . Hope some falls on the fires up the coast.

The surf outlook is for Noreasters to push in a little windswell for the weekend, then a short Southeasterly period, then back to Noreatsers… Spring/Summerlike.

Friday: a tiny bit more than today, still around 1ish metres from the North East… more noticeable on the lower tides with highs being so high and full

Saturday: up more form stronger Noreast wind, into the 1-2 metre range toward the more southern parts of beaches

Sunday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range East North East

Tuesday: down a bit in the 1-2 metre range East South East

Wednesday: around 1 metre or less South East

Thursday: ditto North East

Super smoky

Posted on October 31st, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

UPDATE from Longy

Bomb set at Longy 0800

Crew at Longy under heavily smoky skies 0800

Micro and probably equivalent to smoking a ciggie or two

Very heavy smoke pollution this morning. So polluted in fact that I couldn’t see the beach from a kilometre away. The MHL buoy is showing 1.2 metres of SE at 11 seconds apart as of 0400. Wind was N-NE at 2 kts as of 0730. Next tide is a high at 1115.

Today’s Goat’s forecast day, so I shall defer to his mightyness and await his words of surf wisdom later today…

I’ll try to update with a picture or two from the beach in the next hour.

Very smoky morning along the coast

Posted on October 30th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Not a good day for organisms that enjoy breathing, but it must be particularly bad for those with asthma etc. There’s very little wave activity at Dee Why, so passing on a paddle won’t involve missing much.
The MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 metres of 7-second wind bump from the south as of 0500 and the swell models are saying we shouldn’t expect any real change until maybe Friday-Saturday. If the predictions are right we’ll see a burst of NE wind that should push up some short period but potentially fun size stuff at the usual spots.
Have a great Wednesday everyone.

Micro at No Mans and no takers as of 0730

No dice for the point, but a couple of hopefuls at Kiddies 0730

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will direct north to northeasterly winds over New South Wales waters for most of the week, apart from a brief southerly change along the south coast on Wednesday as a trough moves through.

Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
Winds
Northerly 10 to 15 knots, tending easterly from the early afternoon.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres.
1st Swell
Southerly around 1 metre.
2nd Swell

Postcard from … Munich!

Posted on October 29th, 2019 in Surf Reports.

Went for a wander along the beautiful Isar River yesterday around (20 kms from Munich) and to our surprise we noticed a couple of young guys carrying surfboards. A short distance later on we came upon the Ickinger Weir where they were surfing a standing wave. Evidently the wave is formed by a submerged log that has been wedged there. In this photo you can also see a couple of surfers lined up on the wall waiting for their turn. Looked like a lot of fun, however given the water came from the Alps a little to the south, the surfers were wearing a lot of rubber.

This guy had the best style. Here he is on the wave of the day at Ickinger Weir, Munich, Germany!

Small to tiny but not flat for Tuesday morning

Posted on October 29th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

We had light breezes for the early. Skies were hazy but mostly free of cloud and there seems to be a little south swell trickling in. It didn’t look too consistent at Dee Why and size was in the knee high range with maybe the odd bigger one. Out at sea the MHL buoy observation from 0400 was seeing 12 seconds of 1.5 metres from the S-SSE.

The Bureau’s website is among a number of major sites offline here in Australia and around the world. So no forecast info to share for now. From the models it would appear we can expect NE wind this afternoon. And tomorrow may offer similar marginal surf conditions under cloudy skies. Next tide is a high at 0845.

Longer range outlook is for weak and small through the rest of the week with perhaps a little NE windswell influx on Saturday.

Have yourself a top old Tuesday everyone!

Little Monday but not flat Monday

Posted on October 28th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Small lines coming into Dee Why this morning were delivering knee high waves at the point and maybe a touch bigger up the beach. A light westerly was giving the ocean a little texture and out at sea a few hours earlier, the MHL buoy was seeing 1.3 metres from the S-SSE at 8 seconds apart. So don’t expect much energy. Tide’s high at 0900 and will be back to low about 1515. By the time we hit low, the wind will have been onshore for hours. Hit it early if you can. Ocean temperature is 20C and today’s high will be around 23 along the coast.
Outlook is for swell conditions to fade closer to flatness over the next couple of days. From Wednesday it looks as though we might have a bit more energy in the system. I’m not seeing anything dramatically interesting, but from here it seems as though we could have waist to waist and a bit at south magnets, grading toward chest high sets as we get to Saturday.
Have a great Monday!

Tiny wave up toward No Mans at 0700

Weather Situation
In the wake of a cold front a large high pressure system continues to move into the state from the west, bringing a generally south to southeasterly flow. By Tuesday a northerly flow will return as the high becomes established over the Tasman Sea.

Forecast for Monday until midnight
Winds
Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning east to northeasterly below 10 knots in the evening.

Sunny Sunday with little waves too

Posted on October 27th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Looks as though there are a few fun little knee to waist plus sets along the beach at Dee Why. No one was in the water at the point, although I did see a set wave that looked mal-able. Wind was coming lightly from the SW at 0900. Tide was high at 0815 and is currently running out to the low at 1425. The MHL data from 0600 was showing a mix of dead south and NNE swell. The latter was around 1.5 m at 10 seconds apart. Yesterday afternoon I happened to be down at Curl Curl and there were definitely some nice looking NE lines coming in. Around at Dee Why though it was a lot quieter. So, start your hunt by checking your fave NE spots. Beachwatch says the water’s jumped from 19 to 21C too. Wind should be favourable this morning, but out of the NE from about midday.

The Bureau is calling for the swell settings to hang in there today and then for both to come up a bit tomorrow. Unfortunately the models show the period decreasing, plus the wind call is for it to go SE. So maybe hit it for the early. The next pulse looks like turning up midweek along with cloudy weather. At this stage the modelling shows it getting to around a metre at 10-11 sec.

Go forth and enjoy!

Whadya know, not totally flat on Saturday morning

Posted on October 26th, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Looks very tiny most places this morning, but if Northy is any guide, north corners are picking up waist plus waves. However, if you’re thinking about Dee Why, expect ankle to knee at the south end and knee to thigh up toward Longy. But there’s a bit of a wait in lake like conditions between the sets. There’s a mix of microscopic south and about a metre of 8-second NNE bump as the day gets started.
First tide of the day was the high at 0730 and by the time it’s low again at 1330, the wind should be 20-30 kts from the north, swinging SW toward dusk.

Hot and micro

Posted on October 25th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Less than a metre of 10-sec SSE bump out at sea means that we go into Friday with no surf prospects at Dee Why – or anywhere else in Sydney.
We’re headed to a high of 36C along the coast. Water is sitting on 19C.
Outlook you ask? Ah, we have the wisdom of the Goat to consider…
Have at great Friday and keep cool!

Sunny, heating up and flat at the point as of 0725

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 25 October 2019

Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Decidedly small today, and the outlook for the week ahead is for no significant change.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be okay for some people…. mal riders might be able to find a small wave from time to time, and it’s perfect for learners or for people who just want to sit out there in Nature and have a chat with friends…

Friday: similar to today, say around 1 metre or less Noreastish

Saturday: dittoish, or could be up ever so little bit slightly from wind

Sunday: not much, from dead South

Monday: around 1 metre at dead South palces

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: ditto

Thursday: ditto from North East

Enjoy
