The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 30 January 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Well if you’d looked at some places today you’d have said there was nothing. And you’d have been right if you didn’t have any imagination.  But if you imagined there were waves, and went out regardless, you might have caught an occasional fluke if you were lucky.

The same principle will apply for the next few days at least.

But with how weather forecast and warm water you might as well get wet…

Water temp is around 24-25 according to MHL. TG’s built in RFITW (Real Feel In The Water) sensors concur!

Friday: about 1 metre or so short period North East windswell

Saturday: maybe a little bigger, somewhere in the 1-2 metre range short period North East windswell (small at northern ends, bigger at S ends)

Sunday: let’s say ditto

Monday: Ditto North East/ East

Tuesday:  coming up somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at dead South spots, but short period, so not much chance of much happening in corners protected from the S/SE wind

Wednesday: maybe a bit more say 2, 2+ metres dead South and a bit more chance of something in protected corners with sets around 13-14 seconds

Thursday: going down, say 1-1+ South East

Have a good one
