Zippo Saturday morning

Posted on September 26th, 2020 in At large.

Hello Friends,

No surfing for you this morning. Conditions were otherwise nearly perfect with sunny skies and chilly (and accelerating) offshore winds. Out at sea the buoys were seeing 0.74 metres of 9 second SE wind swell. Ocean temperature is still 18C and we’re heading to a high of 18C along the beaches.
There is a slim hope of a little improvement in wave size toward dusk, but I very much doubt you’ll be going for a surf. Tomorrow could see knee to waist plus waves at the better south exposures, but the good news is that it looks from the forecast models as though we can expect a steady increase in both period and swell heights. Monday should have waves and Tuesday could be overhead at south magnets. In fact, right now the models are telling us we could have waves all week.
Have yourself a great Saturday, stay safe and take the mask for times when you can’t maintain distance.

Weather Situation
A strong cold front which crossed the state on Friday has brought a vigorous westerly change to the New South Wales coast, with conditions expected to remain windy during Saturday. In the wake of this front, a high pressure system is forecast to move across southeast Australia during Sunday and Monday, while a deep low develops over the southern Tasman Sea. This high looks set to be the dominant feature in the region until the next change mid-week.

Forecast for Saturday until midnight

Sunny start, gales inbound

Posted on September 25th, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A light, cool northerly under clear blue skies as Friday got started along the beaches. As the picture shows, it was still flat at Dee Why point and there was only the tiniest of tiny lines coming in up the beach. The Bureau tells us to expect a strong westerly change of 20-30 kts later in the day as the cloud arrives. Swell at sea was about a metre from the south at about 10 seconds apart but you’ll do well to find anything above the knee high mark.
So, when will we see an improvement?
You’re in luck because the one and the only, the mighty Goat has scanned the entrails and pronounced upon our prospects.

Go well with your Friday and keep the mask handy.

Maybe a day to take the kayak for a spin

Weather Situation
Winds will tend northerly and increase today ahead of a vigorous cold front, which looks set to bring a strong to gale-force west to southwesterly change Friday afternoon and evening. A south to southwesterly flow is then expected to persist throughout the weekend as the front moves away to the east and a high extends a ridge from the west.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast and More

Surf forecast issued Thursday 24 September 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Surf outlook

We’ve had a lot of westerly winds lately….pretty much unrelenting..

And the short term outlook is…

Yes.. pretty much more of the same for the next coupla days, but then there might be a little surf when the westerlies ease off.

Some lines were starting to show at places open to the South, today.

Friday: might be a little something, say around 1ish metres at the right tide, at places open to dead South… and not much elsewhere

Saturday: not expecting much at first, maybe 1ish at dead South spots later

Sunday: starting to come up gradually in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places with wind behind it

Monday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: ditto South East

Thursday: ditto more Eastish.

But wait, there’s more

This weekend is the start of the school holidays, and the start of the “swimming season”.. ie the flags go up to show the safe areas to swim.

With people’s thoughts turning more to the beach, and with families and others taking holidays, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to spread the virus (you know the one) around Sydney, the rest of the State and elsewhere… unless people follow the official health advice… Which of course you already know, unless you’re a Complete Boofhead.

Sick of hearing about it?  Hey… Guess what!!!!  We’re doing great here right now, but the point is, it only takes one person.  You’ve got the examples of Europe and the US and Victoria, of what can happen when people relax their guard a little too much.  It hasn’t gone away, and there’s no excuse for ignorance at the beach or elsewhere. There’s this thing called the internet… You’re on it right now!

To help us all stay safe over Summer,  local governments have calculated in advance, the maximum Covid safe beach crowds for individual Sydney beaches… you know, for them to decide if a beach needs to be closed for public health reasons.

Northern Beaches Council info, with crowd numbers they’ve calculated for individual beaches, is here…

https://www.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/general-information/summer-action-plan-outdoor-public-spaces

Go to “Helpful Documents” (could be even more helpful if it were easier to find!)

Surf lifesavers will not be enforcing public health regulations.

That will be the job Council Rangers and the Police if necessary.

But hey, let’s not make any of it necessary…

TG’s Simple Tips for everyone this summer

  1. If you’re driving to the beach and you’re in a line of traffic… then turn around and go somewhere else!
  2. If you get to the beach and it looks crowded… then go somewhere else!
  3. Relax.. Stay Safe… and Have Fun!!

So pretty, so flat

Posted on September 24th, 2020 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Sorry kids. No surfin’ for you this gorgeous spring morning in Sydney. The ocean is a lake. Best thing about the conditions are that they can only improve from here. The Bureau says it might bump up a touch at south magnets this afternoon, but I wouldn’t be expecting much above ankle to thigh at the best exposures.
The Goat will roll out his weekend and week ahead forecast thoughts later this afternoon, so here’s hoping he’ll spot something in the way of an improvement during the weekend…
Go well and take the mask for enclosed spaces – remember, the pandemic started with a single case.

Lazy morning at Manly

Micro but beautiful Wednesday

Posted on September 23rd, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Looking nearly flat at Dee Why this morning. If you’re really patient, there might be the occasional ankle to knee high set. It might be a tiny bit bigger at better NE exposures, but I wouldn’t be overly hopeful. Out at sea the buoy is seeing a touch under a metre of 9+ second bumb from the ENE. As of 0710 wind was out of the NNW at 4-5 kts. It’s set to go around to the west and pick up as the day goes along, at the same time the tiny swell will get tinier as the tide comes into a relatively high 1.66m tide at 1255. It should be a sunny day, getting to a high of 24 and the water ought to be around the 18C mark. Dunno about you, but it’s looking like a bike ride day for your webmaster.
This morning’s swell models are pointing to continued microness until (maybe) late Saturday afternoon when a fresh south pulse could start filling in.
Go well with your Wednesday everyone, and take that mask when you head out.

Windy, mild and little waves

Posted on September 22nd, 2020 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A mild 10 kt westerly at 0700 when I grabbed the snaps. Tide was coming in to the 1.7 m high just before noon and out at sea the swell was around the 1 metre mark at 9 seconds from the east. There looked to be a few knee to maybe waist-and-a-bit plusses at Dee Why. Beachwatch reports water is on 18C and the Bureau says we’re heading to a high of 27 on what should be a mostly sunny day.

Should be a wave around the place if you’re keen. The swell direction means most beaches should be showing something.

From the look of the models, we’re likely to see a decrease to near flatness tomorrow and small to near flat Thursday into late Saturday. But there is some hope of a pulse for south magnets from Sunday morning on into next week…

Have a great day and take the mask for those occasions when you can’t maintain distance. Don’t give the virus a chance.

Weather Situation
A cold front crossed southern and central New South Wales overnight, and is expected to push through to the northeast during today. Meanwhile, a complex low pressure system developing to the west of Tasmania will direct continued fresh to strong west to southwesterly winds over southern and central New South Wales today and Wednesday, extending across all coastal waters by Thursday. Winds are expected to tend north to northwesterly towards the end of the week ahead of another cold front.

Soft and small but not hopeless

Posted on September 21st, 2020 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Going to a high of 30 today. It’s sunny this morning, but there’s a 60% chance of showers later. There is some bump about thanks to 1.3 metres of 8-9 second NE wind swell. Best exposures should be seeing waist high sets with the odd chest plus bomb. Tides heading into a fairly swampy 1.75m high at 1105. Wind before 0730 was out of the north at around 10kts. That should build soon because the forecast says it’ll be 15-20 kts later. Water’s still on 18C.

Onshore but rideable at Manly before 0900

Clean and soft little lines

Posted on September 19th, 2020 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Smooth and glassy under foggy skies as Saturday got started. There were a fair number of folks scattered along the north Collaroy to Narrabeen stretch and similar numbers south of there at Dee Why to Longy. Sets at the best peaks were into the waist high range, but mostly it was knee high or smaller. Swell at sea is 1.3 metres at 9 seconds from the SE and our next tide is a swampy 1.7 m high at 0930. Wind will gradually pick up from the eastern quarters as it builds to 15-25 kts for the afternoon. Water is 18C.
Tomorrow’s swell looks like being smaller and more east as the cloudy conditions continue and the NE wind gets stronger across the daylight and early evening hours. Summer NE windswell spots will be the go. The current forecasts show the surf prospects fading across midweek before (hopefully) coming back up a little as we head into next weekend.

Take care and take the mask. The virus hasn’t gone away and everyone you love can catch it, so let’s keep each other safe.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on September 17th, 2020 in Goat's Forecast.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 17 September 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

There’s a Sydney Southerly Buster for you…

3pm 32 degrees and low humidity 28% light N wind,

5pm 18 degrees and 78% and strong S wind.

If you were lucky enough to get to the beach today… and were at the right place at the right tide, there were some nice cruisey waves around.

There are so many factors and variables to consider, it’s a wonder that those who pick it aren’t all rocket scientists!

So will all that wind that’s blowing around outside now do some good??? you ask.

For all its huffing and puffing, the general answer is:

Not really.

If you don’t set your expectations too high, you shouldn’t be disappointed, and

who knows, you might even be pleasantly surprised after a few days.. at the right tide.. and right places>>>

Friday: in the low end of the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South… nothing much elsewhere

Saturday: ditto, a bit more South East

Sunday: ditto and North East

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

Tuesday: down a bit in the 1-2 metre range North East

Wednesday: around 1 metre or less North East

Thursday: Ditto

Have fun.
