Posted on April 3rd, 2020 in Surf Reports.

Looking small, real small. Checked the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch first. Only a few people splashing about because waves were maybe knee high and only rarely appearing.

Very tiny morning
South Narra set

The Dee Why to Longy stretch was equally small, but there were lots more people in the water and walking along the beach.

Many strolling

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 2 April 2020

When life gives you lemons… make lemonade.

First, here are some lemons for us to suck on>>>

From NSW Health

“Help stop the spread of COVID-19

From 31 March 2020you must stay at home, unless you are going to

  • work and education, where you can’t work remotely
  • shop for food and essentials
  • medical needs or the care of others
  • exercise.

Existing rules around 10 people at funerals and 5 people at weddings still apply.

  • If you go out, stay 1.5 metres away from other people at all times.
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home.

Do not gather in public with more than 2 people except

  • for members of the same household
  • where the gathering is essential for work or education.

These new restrictions are legally enforceable.

Anyone could spread the virus, even without knowing.

Together we can help stop the spread of COVID-19.”

COVID-19 is not to be taken lightly and the rules are for our own good health. My daughter knows two young people, one in Australia, one in the US, who are currently suffering from coronavirus. You don’t want to get it!

We should all have a think about what the rules might mean for us – adults and kids – when say we pull up at beach carparks, consider paddling out to join a crew at a crowded spot and conditions on the beach itself on the next good surf day or nice day for the beach>>> over the next three months …at least>>>

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-02/nsw-lockdown-to-be-lifted-in-90-days-as-coronavirus-cases-fall/12112182

There’s not much point considering technicalities of which beaches are closed and which aren’t. If any beach gets too crowded they will be closed – as Palm Beach has been twice already, Manly, Freshie, Curlie, DY, Long Reef etc. on sunny weekends.

Here’s a tip: If you’re heading for any beach and you’re in traffic, just turn around and go home.

So what’s the lemonade??

If you leave your car out tonight and tomorrow you’ll get a free carwash! 🙂

Yeah, I know. It’s not the same as getting in the water yourself – which you still can do for exercise in accordance with the above. But if it all gets too hard trying to do the right thing, remember it is a “temporary” phase, and it will pass in Australia sometime. Remember when you had to stay out of the surf for an extended period say after an injury or an operation? You had to stay out of the surf, or slow down, or not do certain things to get better then. You might have to do something similar now, just to stay healthy.

Most of us will be home for quite a while so it might be a good idea to start thinking about getting out your favourite surf movies for the 63rd rerun. Maybe starting with the classic Endless Summer and follow up with Endless Summer 2 ! Tell a mate to watch it at their place too and have a video chat about great surfs and what you’re going to do when it’s safe.

The power of movies is amazing.. A friend of mine saw the original Endless Summer one weekend when it was first released. Back at work on Monday he was down at Circular Quay in his lunch break, saw a ship with “Cape Town” on the back of it. This was in the days before cheap plane travel. He booked a passenger ticket on the ship to South Africa on the spot, went back to work and quit his job… and set off in search of the mythical waves of Cape St Francis!

No one can stop you dreaming about great surf 🙂

Friday: around 1 metre or so North East

Saturday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East

Sunday: around 1 metre North East

Monday: around 1 metre East

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range dead South

Wednesday: dittoish

Thursday: starting to come up more from dead South

Just the basics… don’t want you to get overexcited about nothing surf 🙂

Stay healthy

Tiny waves around the place

Posted on April 2nd, 2020 in At large.

Hello Friends,
Went for a bike ride with the camera…
Wind was light NNW 5-10 kts as of 0900. Swell was out of the NE and was a metre at 15 seconds out at sea. I did not see any obvious sign of 15-second energy though, instead, as the pictures show, it was weak and wind-swelly looking. So, maybe there were bomb sets I missed.
Weather was partly sunny this morning, but there’s a 90% chance of rain by this afternoon.

Mild morning, milder waves

Posted on April 1st, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
How’s the home front this morning? Hope you’re keeping well and washing those hands. As the pictures show, you’re missing nothing where the beach’s concerned. There was a light ESE following a weak and choppy 1.2 metre SSE bump at Dee Why this morning. A few people were in the 22C water for a paddle but they weren’t catching anything.

Checking the models, it looks as though we may have to wait until early next week for anything interesting in the way of waves – assuming of course that we’re still permitted to surf for exercise.

Go well with your day!

Sunny skies, tiny swell

Posted on March 31st, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A beautiful sunny morning along the beaches with a light WNW breeze as of 0900. As the pictures show the waves are really tiny. Out at sea the bump is about a metre at a choppy 5 seconds apart from the SSW.
Fortunately we’re still allowed to exercise (with a maximum of one other person and maintaining 1.5m minimum distance).
Outlook is for the tiny conditions to persist for the coming week, with maybe a little uptick at the weekend according to the latest Wavewatch forecast.
Stay safe everyone and follow the rules.

Grey and drizzly Monday morning

Posted on March 30th, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Waited for the drizzle to back off before getting this morning’s pictures. Out at sea the east wind bump is 1.2 metres at 8 seconds. Tide was high a touch after 0700. Dee Why is in the knee to waist plus range.

As of this morning, I’m out of self-isolation so, according to the current advice  from the NSW government, I can exercise in public space again (see below). Given the paltry conditions, I’m not planning to go for a surf, but maybe a bike ride around the lagoon later… of course there will be no stopping for a chat with folks and I’ll be maintaining distance at all times, remembering that whenever I’m out, the virus can find me. It persists on surfaces and you just need the one viral particle to come in contact with your eyes, nose or mouth and you’ll be shedding millions within a couple days and symptomatic anywhere from 1-10 days later. You will expose everyone around you to danger.

So apart from getting essential supplies, going to the doc, or work, or getting exercise, stay home.

NSW Government Outdoor exercise statement (link (opens in new window)

Yes, you can exercise outdoors but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.

Personal training, boot camps and fitness classes may be held outdoors in groups of no more than 10 people (including the person running the class) but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.

Social sporting-based activities may be held outdoors in groups of no more than 10 people but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.

Sporting activities may create the opportunity for physical contact between people and therefore can increase the risk of transmission of disease. The Australian Government’s Community Sport Guidelines provide advice in relation to organising or attending these activities.

Weather Situation
A high pressure system near New Zealand stretches a ridge to the north coast. Winds are expected to tend more northerly as the high moves further east and a cold front moves through Bass Strait. This front is expected to bring a southerly change to southern New South Wales waters on Monday and the remainder on Tuesday. Another high will move to the southern Tasman on Tuesday in the wake of the front.

Keep your distance

Posted on March 29th, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

This morning there were 1617 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in NSW and the State government is flagging stage 3 restrictions. Remember to that there is an unknown number of asymptomatic cases which are capable of shedding virus without realising it. If you’re at home, it’s much less likely that the virus can ‘find’ you. If you’re outside, give yourself the best chance of not picking it up by staying away from places with others and keep your distance. Wash your hands when you come home.

There are waves this morning and people are getting amongst them at Dee Why. The carpark looks full too, so lots of folks are taking a chance that the virus won’t find them. I’m on my last day of self-isolation but I wouldn’t be down there with that many people around.

In response to new measures introduced by the State Government that limit the number of people on any beach to 500, some beaches and harbour pools are closed until further notice. This is to encourage appropriate social distancing (1.5m between people) and to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Please contact councils for local beach conditions.

Windy, messy, lumpy, grey

Posted on March 27th, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

First order of the day, wash hands, check temp for day 12 of self-isolation. All good. Fire up the coffee, flick on the news, grab the camera and climb aloft for a couple of snaps. High overcast, wind ESE 10-15 kt and the ocean looks like it too – dull, choppy and bumpy but there are junky, sectiony chest plus sets at the point and along the beach. Out at sea it’s 2.3 metres at 9 seconds from 131°. Tide is coming into the high at 1100. Water is rated as clean and 22C by Beachwatch.

Earlier I posted some text from the ABC website, but it is highly likely that the advice in question will soon change given the following remarks from the Premier of NSW.

Ms Berejiklian says people should not go outside unless they “absolutely have to”.

She said containing COVID-19 at this stage meant “we are better off in the next few weeks and months”.

“It is up to all of us to come together to do our part and deal with the disease at this critical stage,” she said.

re: exercise, ABC News’ website published the following on Tuesday

Exercise outdoors, while you still can
If you’re not self-isolating or unwell, the experts agree you and your family can still go outside to exercise at this stage.

But you must practise social distancing, keep up good hygiene practices, and wash your hands when you get home.

This advice may change in the event of widespread community transmission of this coronavirus, said Adam Kamradt-Scott, an expert in the spread and control of infectious diseases at the University of Sydney.

So walking, cycling and running are still on the menu, as are outdoor sports like golf and tennis although you’ll likely find your local golf course or tennis club will have implemented extra hygiene measures to abide by.

In response to new measures introduced by the State Government that limit the number of people on any beach to 500, some beaches and harbour pools are closed until further notice. This is to encourage appropriate social distancing (1.5m between people) and to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Please contact councils for local beach conditions.

So, your correspondent will remain on the exercise sidelines until Monday morning. Of course by then the instructions could change.

Keep safe and remember if you stay home, you’re staying away from the virus. The more you move about, the better the chance you have of finding it.

Weather Situation
A high pressure system near Tasmania is lowly moving east across the southern Tasman Sea, while a low pressure trough lingers off the northern coast of New South Wales. This pattern is directing south to southeasterly winds along the coastal waters, which are expected to tend more northeasterly across the weekend as the high moves further east and a cold front approaches from the west. This front is expected to bring a southerly change to New South Wales waters during the first half of next week.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 26th, 2020 in Goat's Forecast.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 26 March 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

I said to a mate this morning that I’d been mulling over what I should say in the forecast in a socially responsible way, given present circumstances.

He said:

Just say… The surf is crap. And you can’t go out anyway!

So there’s the Surf Forecast. Thanks Roy.

While that might not be strictly correct (the surf is _total_ crap), now is not the time to be splitting hairs.

Some of the major beaches are closed because of the people who couldn’t stick to social distancing rules. But in addition, among the Government’s current advice to stop the spread of the virus in the community, is “We are suspending non-essential gatherings to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19). This will give both businesses and people time to fully understand social distancing requirements.” And “non essential travel is to be avoided”.  It doesn’t specifically say don’t go to the beach, but that doesn’t mean: let’s all go to beaches that are currently open and congregate in close groups like Total Drongos.

Keep up to date: aus.gov.au

Common sense in following the rules is the order of the day for outdoor (and indoor) activities.

To assist with this, for the time being  TG intends not to provide comment on what the surf outlook looks like and just give the facts, for people to use their own common sense.  Younger people and Complete Dills might need some community guidance for the good of public health from time to time.

We all need something to look forward to. If we all do the right thing, we should stay healthy so we can enjoy crowded surfs (!!??) in the future.  Did that come out right??

TG may offer some helpful suggestions from time to time… like…

Maybe remember some great surf trips you’ve had in the past to talk over with mates on the phone?.. or

Under the current rules, hairdressers are open. Yesterday he was weighing up the risks of getting a haircut…

Will the barber follow the 4 square metre rule etc?

versus

Will a later gathering of 10 people say: “A pity about TG. But boy he’s got a great haircut!”

As TG was starting to look like Rip Van Winkel, he decided it wouldn’t hurt to have a look….

First barber “Closed due to coronavirus”.

Second barber “Open”.. plenty of space inside, lots of ventilation with front and back doors open, and the only person inside was the barber.  So far so good, fingers crossed. 🙂 If it doesn’t work out I’ll blame the Government.

To help out those businesses that can’t work from home and help keep the economy ticking over, if there is something you need, it might be worth just having a look, following the rules and using common sense.

Stay safe. Stay well.
