The Goat’s Surf Forecast

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

Just when you thought it’s time to get back in the water… along comes a chilly blast from way down south.

Kids are gearing up for school, parents are gearing up for work… Lots of people exercising in the water today.  But let’s see how many there are out there tomorrow.  Good luck to them!  Not this little duck. I’m now officially a Fair Weather Surfer. It’s official ’cause I say so.

Anyway for others who are younger, fitter, or thicker skinned than I am…… Hang on, the weather looks like it’ll warm up a little after a couple of days…But the surf will be bigger.  So many things to think about!

Friday: down a little from today, say around 1 ish metres

Saturday: around 1 metre or less, or even flat

Sunday: coming up at dead South places,say 2, 2+ metres

Monday: up some more, 2-3 metre range dead South

Tuesday: easing back , 2-2+ metres South East

Wednesday: 1-2 metre range South East

Thursday: around 1 ish metres dead South

Stay warm, Stay safe. Stay well. Stay yourself.
