The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Friday 8 January 2021: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Right now it’s windy and the surf is windblown choppy rubbish.  Sheltered corners? >> there’s not a lot happening.

The outlook is for the wind to ease and swing around to a Summer Noreaster, which means summer surf conditions too.  Hey it’s about time we got some Summer.

There should be opportunities for waves at the right tides, right places for those who keep their eyes open.

Saturday: lower end of the 1-2 metre range East South East

Sunday: around 1 metre or so East South East

Monday: around 1 metre or less East South East

Tuesday: around 1 metre or less East

Wednesday: ditto or maybe a bit more

Thursday: 1 – 1+ metres East

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range East/North East

Stay safe and follow official Health advice.
