The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 4 February 2021: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

From what I saw of the surf today, there were clearly some people who, when looking at the surf must have said to themselves, Yum Yum.

I don’t know for sure, but I imagine they would be the same people who might look at an ice cream cone dropped in the dirt, covered with pebbles and twigs, and say to themselves, Yum Yum.

Fair enough… It’s a democracy.  Everyone’s entitled to their own view… But I would suggest that the opinions of two people wouldn’t be the same as what most people would say to themselves.

What I saw, admittedly later in the day, was absolute rubbish… onshore wind pushing shoreward a constant succession of close outs from way out to sea.

So that was today. What’s on the horizon?  Will it be more dirty ice cream cones, or something more tasty??

A bit of both. 🙂

Friday: easing back a bi from Thursday, say somewhere in the 1-2 metre range from East with light wind at first, then up a bit, say maybe around 2 metres at southern ends with the Noreaster pushing it along.. Sheltered corners are the places everyone will be. But If you want it to yourself, get out in the wind and eat your dirty ice creams

Saturday: leftover similars from yesterday, increasing at southern ends of beaches, along with the Noreaster

Sunday: easing a bit in the 1-2 metre range North East, then turning more East as a southerly comes through to chop conditions up completely (dirtier ice creams)

Monday: coming up 1-2 metres, 2 + metres Eastish

Tuesday: might look like it’s down, but will be just a change in direction to dead South, with most going past, somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at places open to the South

Wednesday: ditto

Thursday: dittoish South East

Enjoy your ice creams, when you can.

TG 🙂

You don’t like ice cream?? That’s unfortunate for you.
