The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 January 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Bit warmish today, with a bit of dust in the air. The wind is expected to turn south early tomorrow morning to cool down the temp for you.

My mates and I have looked at the surf all week, gone in for swims because of the crowd (it’s school hols and those who had gone south came home and stayed home) and the waves (not to my liking anytime I saw them), but at the beach I’ve heard other people, all young people, raving about the great surf they had here or there, whenever. Anyway, good luck to them; glad they’re having fun.

The coming week is also likely to suit the keen, enthusiastic, young, fit etc, who’ll be best able to make the most of continuing Noreast windswell.  Factors determining how good the surf will be each day this week will be tides, banks (I haven’t seen a good one for ages) and wind.  And of course it’ll be bigger at southern ends of beaches (but windy at times).

Surf outlook

Friday: down a bit from today, say around the middle of the 1-2 metre range North East

Saturday: somewhere around 1, 1+ metres North East

Sunday: smaller East North East

Monday: around 1 metre East North East

Tuesday: ditto North East

Wednesday: up a little from the South, say 1-1+ metres East South East

Thursday: around 1 metre East South East.

At least someone’s having fun!
