The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 15 October 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Today the weather was beautiful, but the surf when I saw it was very windy and ordinary with few takers.

The surf outlook is for small to medium surf over the weekend and into next week, while the weather outlook according to the BoM is for lots of wind changes and a mixed bag of showers and partly cloudiness.

Which means there could be some OK waves at times, but quality will likely  depend on the fickleness of the winds, so stay alert for your opportunities..

Friday: down a little from Thursday, say around 1- 1+ metres East then coming up a little with southerly winds, say in the 1-2 metre range at places open to the South

Saturday: down in the 1-2 metre range South East, then up a bit later in the 1-2 metre range South East

Sunday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range East North East, down at first, then up

Monday: around 1ish – 1+ metres East South East

Tuesday: around 1ish metres or less East South East

Wednesday: ditto South East

Thursday: ditto East, then starting to come up later.

Stay cool… Chillax… Be kind to others, in and out of the water.

Water temp… When is this cold water going away! It’s a PITB and is making the wind at the beach cold too. Inshore it’s still around 18… out a bit it’s 19-20. Maybe the current will swirl some of the warm water inshore soon.
