The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on November 15th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 15 November 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Well that doesn’t look very nice does it.. water’s got a tad cooler, air’s got a tad cooler, waves are blhh at most places, and that looks like what it’ll be like for the weekend and into early next week.  Hard to get excited about that, and there’s water falling from the sky as I write.. which is of course good but not if you want to do things outside. Tsk it’s so hard to please everyone.. anyone?? Oh well…

 

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range South East without quality or power, and accompanied by a S wind to chop it up

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East and ditto S/SE wind

Sunday: ditto, maybe up a little on sets, and onshore

Monday: dittoish, and mostly onshore, with NE wind later

Tuesday: ditto down a little, NE Wind

Wednesday: ditto up a little East South East/East North East

Thursday: ditto at dead South places only, might be small Ok if forecast offshore comes good.

Keep smiling

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on November 1st, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 1 November 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

It’s gunna be hot…it’s gunna be hot..

So best to be where it’s not… where it’s not!

And where might that be?

In the water of course.  With a 37 degree max forecast – all of a sudden – for tomorrow, who cares if  the ocean surface is not going to be moving around much..

Ok Ok you might get lucky at the right tide,  the right banks, with the right equipment and bag a little wave as a bonus.

Friday: about 1 metre or so North East

Saturday: a little more say 1 -1 + metre North East, until an early afternoon SE change, as expected by the BoM

Sunday: maybe around 1 metre at places that get dead South swell

Monday: ditto

Tuesday: smaller East North East

Wednesday: about 1 metre North East

Thursday: coming up at dead South spots.. 1-2 , 2-3 metres

Have a good one.  Stay cool.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on October 25th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.
Waves of varying sorts in the coming week. Water temp is very slowly creeping up and warmer water is still offshore but coming closer. Might even attract me back in after being away in warmer climes.
Friday: down a little from today but still in 1-2 metre range East South East
Saturday: up in the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South
Sunday: up some more, into the 2-3 metre range at dead South places
Monday: still up, with some oomphy sets, and probably coming into protected corners
Tuesday: down a little, around 2 metres South East with some sets
Wednesday: down some more  – around 1 metre Eastish
Thursday: around 1 metre North East South East
Have fun. Stay safe.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on October 18th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast, Surf Reports.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 18 October 2018:

Seven day outlook for Sydney:

How about this great weather???  Great if you’re a farmer, a keen gardener, or just want your dam levels to keep filling up so you can have a drink of water and a wash, and your food ( whether you’re vegetarian, or carnivourous, or omnivourous) to keep coming to wherever you get it.  And you’re gonna get wet anyway going for a surf so what’s a few more drops on you before you get to the water’s edge…

Saw a few nice looking waves today before dark and there should be waves all week, suitable for Nor East spots.  But be prepared to have a few more pre-surf showers if you want to have a surf in the coming week…  Air temp should be warmer and who knows with the water temp…

Surf outlook:

Friday: up a little from today in the 1-2 metre range East North East

Saturday: down a little in the 1-2 metre rnage East North east

Sunday: dittoish but southerly wind affected, but not enough to completely stop the East North East swell

Monday: down a little in the 1-2 metre range East North East

Tuesday: similar

Wednesday: ditto

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

Have a good one.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on August 23rd, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 August 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Forecasts may be intermittent for a little while… depends whether there’s access to wifi wherever I am and whether I’ve got the time to do a forecast or send a postcard while I’m having fun!  Will obviously check in from time to time to see who our Prime Minister is this week.

In the meantime… the swell is still hanging in there at pretty much dead South 2-3 metres offshore, mostly going straight past but with enough of a period for it to be getting into the places that like that kind of thing….though is starting to turn a little more South East, so more will start to come in.

And it looks like there might be a few drops of water falling from the skies over the coming days… but not enough for the farmers unless there’s more to come later.

The waves~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Friday: up from today – around 2 metres or so South East, easing back a little later

Saturday: then up again to around 2 ish metres East South East

Sunday: then down again in the 1-2 metre range East

Monday: down more to around 1 metre or so East South East

Tuesday: dead South swell starting to come up from a Low expected to develop off the far South Coast… say in the 1-2 metre range at dead South friendly spots, with most going straight past  (don’t jump in the car, Don)… bigger outside…not enough period to get in, then…

Wednesday: easing back in the 1-2 metre range dead South, most still going past

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East, but more coming ashore.

Sad news about Bob, a regular at Little Av, which is never a wave for the faint hearted.

Goodness it’s hard to know where to go to get warm … Earthquake rumblings in Indo.. Hurricanes off Hawaii…

Talk when I can… Miss you already 🙂

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on August 10th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Friday 10 August 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Hi folks

Surf outlook continues to be mostly smallish, but there should be the occasional nice little wave at some places at right tides etc..

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range North East

Sunday: down in the 1-2 metre range Eastish

Monday: down more 1-1+metres only at places open to dead South

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: down again, small to flat

Thursday: ditto

Friday: there might be a small increase at South facing beaches.

I was at a celebration of life yesterday for surfboat legend and fellow Life Member of ABSLSC Rick Millar who passed away last weekend.  He had  battled problems with the Big C for some years – not that you would have known it, as he not only continued sweeping boats in several Aussie Titles after treatment, but won a Gold Medal at the last one in April in WA!  That is determination.

He used to joke that the P in his name was silent, but again you wouldn’t know that from hearing the positive comments from the many younger club members who said he had changed their lives for the better – an outstanding achievement in anyone’s life.  I will miss him. He can now give Midget an exclusive earbashing about the surf and boats, more than he used to. Midget will love that.. haha. RIP both of them.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on August 3rd, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Friday 3 August 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Very small NE windswell today, that was not breaking at high tide…

Nice day, except for the howling Northerly, and horrible air quality from necessary bushfire control burnoffs on the Central Coast.

If you thought it was small today, wait till you see tomorrow, and the next day, and the next>>>>>>>>>>>

Saturday: less than 1 metre NE.. and not breaking at high tide

Sunday: similar

Monday: ditto

Tuesday: smaller or Flat

Wednesday: ditto

Thursday: about the same.

Friday: might be little wave around 1 metre or so at places open to dead South

Keep smiling 🙂

Lovely day ..24 max.. N/NNW wind might make some tiny NE windswell later if you’re lucky.

Have a good one.

Saturday update

Yep..beautiful morning …teensy tiny waves..you wouldn’t say surf …at places open to the South.. Only for sitting chatting on longboards SUPs etc etc if you’re keen for some paddling exercise.

Have fun.

Surf forecast issued Friday 27 July 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Beautiful weather Ordinary waves… to continue this week. Don’t shoot the messenger! OK

Saturday: pretty much flat

Sunday: might be a tiny Nor East windswell, but don’t expect much to be happening at high tide

Monday: flattish

Tuesday: might be a little something around say 1 metre or so briefly but only at South facing beaches

Wednesday: down again to not much

Meanwhile, while waiting for the surf to come again, stay healthy!
