The Goat’s Easter Surf Forecast

Posted on April 13th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 13 April 2017:

Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Well the wind looks like finally easing up but there’ll still be some sizable waves pushing through for some days yet at places open to the South and even getting into the protected corner, before it too starts to ease back. The Low in the Tasman that’s been responsible for both is heading off to spread some Easter cheer to NZ. It’s left us with a parting gift of waves all week.

With people going away and coming here for the long weekend there’ll be lots of rips at unfamiliar places, and waits between the sets, so TG’s advice is to spend some time checking the surf before racing out.  We want to see you all back here after the break… In fact I think you should report back on your adventures on your return, even if you’re not going anywhere.

Surf:

Friday: around 2-3 metres South East, with some sizable sets

Saturday: down a little in the 2-3 metre range, more South South East, but with sets

Sunday: 1-2 metre range South South East

Monday: upper end of the 1-2 metre range South East, with sets

Tuesday: mostly around 1 metre South East, but with bigger sets from East South East

Wednesday: ditto, East South East, and ditto

Thursday: around 1 metre East South East

Stay safe and have fun the surf.

Happy Easter

Water temp is “nice” I’ve been told…

Several of MHL’s waverider buoys – Sydney, PK, BB and Eden appear to have had enough of the recent foul weather, wind and sea conditions and have either floated away in despair or are in need of other technical help.  Anyway they can’t tell us about the waves or the temp at the moment.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 March 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

According to the radio yesterday, Sydney had 19 days in March (out of 22) that were wet… so make that 20/ 23 today.  Despite that, and a few severe Thunderstorms, the Beachwatch website suggests that most Sydney beaches are unlikely to be polluted today:

Great news!… Personally I’ll wait for a bit more sunshine to get onto the water. My own simple rule: If it looks dirty, it is dirty.

Surf:

Friday: about 2 metres, 2+ metres on the sets South East

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range South East, with occasional sets

Sunday: going down in the 1-2 metre range South East

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 16th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 March 2017:  Seven day outlook for Sydney:

I hate to say it, but the current outlook is for similar or a variation on more of the same… Showers (or two), onshoreish wind (or fresh southerlies for variety), choppyish short period waves and generally rubbish… with an occasional patch of blue sky, even sunshine, to make you think it’s fining up and settling down at last.  Might be semi OK Monday, Tuesday.

There’s a big High out over the Tasman that’s sending us all the above. A Low that might form off the Goldie is uncertain at this stage according to the BoM.

On the plus side: warm air temps, warm sea temps.

So the Surf:

Friday: let’s just say about 2 metres or so windblown from South East after an expected southerly starts puffing away

Saturday: around 2 + metres East South East windblown

Sunday: around 2 + metres East North East and onshore to Nor East

Monday: around 2 + metres North East, with a fresh Noreaster

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range North East, might be OK before a southerly change chops it up

Wednesday: ditto, with southerly wind

Thursday: starting to come up in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places.

If none of the above appeals to you…

Just relax, keep calm and say it again: “Oh well We need the rain”… And keep saying it to make yourself feel better.

Remember, it will get better.

There will be sunshine and perfect waves… Sometime 🙂

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 9th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Another quick one cause I’m still on the road..

That Low/s off the coast has been blowing long and hard and is still pushing large swell up the coast, which is really only rideable at the best South swell spots…and I’ve been fortunate enough to have been at three of them…Six straight days of point break surfing for me … Mostly not really in my age bracket.  I’m just happy to be able to get to my feet these days so I’m more than happy, but I need a rest.   I’m not 18 anymore haha.
Its been much better up the coast than in Sydney, but it will start calming down everywhere soon.
For Sydney
Friday: about 2-3 metres East South East
Saturday: about 2 metres East South East
Sunday: 1-2 metre range East South East
Monday, Tuesday: about 1 metre East
Wednesday, Thursday: about 1 metre North East.

TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 2nd, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Quick surf forecast coz I’m travelling and busy having fun…

The onshore easterlies and Eastish, Eastnortheastish swell coming from a fair distance courtesy of a High in the Tasman might be supplemented or replaced by some swell coming from the South, but overall conditions may not be much better with the wind also behind that. Wait and see what the Low does.

At this stage

Friday Saturday in the 1-2 metre range East North East

Sunday ditto East

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday possibly  2-3, 3+, 1-2 metres depending on what the Low does.

Enjoy .

 

 


Saturday and beyond

Posted on February 25th, 2017 in At large, Goat's Forecast, Surf Reports.

Something for you to read on a wet day

Waves are currently around 2.3 m offshore from dead South at 9 seconds.  Tide is high at 8.20am. It’s raining heavy at times, windy at 30-40 kph overcast and dull to dark to poor visibility…

And there are some keen ones in the water! Me… I’ll have a shower instead.

The surf doesn’t look too promising for Saturday at the moment….likely to start coming up at places open to due South, but which will also be open to the S wind … And only shortish period swell, so it’s not likely much will get into protected corners.
If you’re keen you’ll have to look hard to find that place with a sweet spot between the wind being too much, and the waves not breaking.
For the following days, not much joy at this stage… Although there’ll be waves pretty much all week it looks like most days with have onshore/onshoreish wind, so wave quality isn’t likely to be high.
Never mind.  Might be ok for a get fit swim in protected corners, or in beach rock pools
Water temp was 22 from the Noreasters yesterday…Already back up to 24 after the southerly came through.
The Bureau is forecasting several days with the chance of a Thunderstorm… Being on the open ocean, or an open beach if there’s lightning around is not the places to be then.
The Goat’s Surf Forecast 
Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 February 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Well we’ve had some nice weather …and ordinary waves. ..

Now, based on the Bureau’s current weather outlook, and after TG has digested the info he swallowed from his long range over the horizon binoculars and crystal ball (there’s a picture for you),  it looks like we might have coming our way ….some ordinary weather…and some ordinary short period low quality waves!  Yum.
I can either tell you what you want to hear, or I can tell you the truth…
No use sugar coating it for you..
Friday: around the middle of the 1-2 metre range East North East, might be alright in the morning before the wind turns S / SE
Saturday: starting to come up at places that get dead South swell,  but with little quality, no pulse to it and windy and choppy
Sunday: in the 1-2 metre range East North East with onshore wind
Monday: pretty much ditto
Tuesday: down a bit in the 1-2 metre range East North East onshoreish
Wednesday: and ditto
Thursday: 1-2 metre range East with onshore
Have fun.  Keep smiling!
