TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 23rd, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

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

Monday: about 1 metre or so East South East

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: 1 metre or less East South East

Thursday: 1 metre or less East North 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!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

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

20 Years of TG’s Surf Forecasts !!

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

Yep, TG has officially done 20 years of surf forecasts, and is now into his 21st year (I wonder if he’ll ever grow up??)…

The first forecast went up on 30 January 1997 and there has been a forecast on realsurf.com for the week ahead almost every week since then 🙂

TG’s Surf Forecasts were the first publicly available surf forecasts on the internet in Australia!  We know that was the case – because there wasn’t anyone else!

And they are still provided free, and gratis, and without charge to the viewing public. Talk about value for money.

To all those who’ve said nice things about them and how helpful they’ve been over the years (amazingly a lot of people) Thank you…It’s appreciated and a pleasure.  But don’t let that stop you… Keep on sending ’em :)… TG thrives on praise.

To those (remarkably few) others who’ve felt inclined to nitpick when the forecast for a particular day was out by say a metre.. or three (quite rare, amazingly)… You can go umm… make your own arrangements 🙂  The forecasts come to you with the proviso:  You can’t tell Mother Nature what to do.

http://www.realsurf.com/the-goat-faq/

Now for the week ahead…

Not much in store, unless you ride a longboard or SUP… and at the right tides, you might get a fun little wave.  If you don’t, and you don’t like onshores when the surf is slightly bigger, then Suck it up! (that’s harsh love I know) and Relax.

Friday: around 1 metre or so North East, maybe a little more

Saturday: about 1 metre North East

Sunday: coming up in the 1-2 metre range from South South East, and windy.  Not much is likely to get into protected corners

Monday: going down already to about 1 metre at dead South places, and windy

Tuesday: hmm, ditto

Wednesday: 1 metre or less East South East

Thursday: about 1 metre East South East

Have fun! Keep smiling!

Saturday: 1-2 metre range East North East, and watch for sets

Sunday: ditto and ditto at first, but going down as the forecast Southerly hits it

TG’s Surf Forecast

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

Surf forecast issued Thursday 2 February 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The gusty Southerly change that came through this morning huffed and it puffed but it didn’t really do anything, and while it has eased off considerably, the present smallish surf is WCNG (Windy, Choppy, No Good).

Wind is expected to be light North Easter by tomorrow, with some more hot weather on the way. The surf outlook for the coming weekend and week is, shall we say, somewhat subdued.. but have no fear there will be little waves at some places at the right tides…and with the appropriate surf craft.

Friday: about 1 metre or so South East

Surf forecast issued Thursday 26 January 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Happy Australia Day…hope you all enjoy it wisely.

Variable winds so not much chance for waves to build up over the coming weekend and week.  But there are some warm days forecast by the Bureau, so the mostly small waves will at the right times and right places provide an excuse to get wet and get some paddling exercise at the same time.

Friday: around the middle of the 1-2 metre range at places that get dead South swell at first then more coming in from East South East

Saturday: ditto size… from South East

Sunday: ditto…from North East

Monday: ditto..East

Tuesday: ditto..North East

Wednesday: and ditto..East North East

Water temp is around 21 at present…
