The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 6 August 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Good news ! for those who like some solid waves. It looks like there’ll be plenty of wind and wave direction changes too and variety is the spice of life.

But it may turn out not to be all that pleasant, with lots of Lows on the map swirling around, to end up who knows where. The weather forecast has changed for tomorrow since yesterday, with rain now expected later in the day. So don’t be surprised if the weather and the wave outlooks change over coming days.

At present the surf outlook is

Friday: around 2ish metres, 2+ maybe South East

Saturday: ditto East

Sunday: upper end of the 1-2 metre range Eastish

Monday: dittoish

Tuesday: 3ish metres South East

Wednesday: 2ish metres East

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range East

Stay safe and Have Fun in and out of the water.
