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 🙂

Water temp

Woo…it’s gone down from 17 off Sydney at the weekend to 15.7  — which is decidedly chilly on my scale.  With some Noreasters forecast over the weekend it could get even chillier.

Just look at that East Coast Current and how its complex whirrings affect your water temp>>>

Couple of interesting features this week..

1 looks like there might be some waves on the horizon for next week… outta control at first, naturally, but it should settle down a bit after that, and

Friday: not much happening, if anything at all

Saturday: ditto

Sunday: SSW wind to start ruffling up the surface and blow up some white water

Monday: in the 2ish – 3ish range at dead South spots, with SW wind to chop it up at first, then light

Tuesday:  a bit more consistent… down a little in the 2-3 metre range South East and with offshore wind

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.

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

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

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 🙂

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on July 13th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast, Surf Reports.

 

Saturday update:

Oh yes it’s UP!…MHL buoy 4-7 metres dead South 10+ period…Whoomping in at places open to dead South swell…and it’s freezing!

Just climbed to 10 degrees but the WSW windchill means it’s around 3 on the coast.

Not many takers out anywhere.

Stay warm!

TG.

Surf forecast issued Friday 13 July 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The outlook is for the surf to come up Saturday at places open to dead South but not be very attractive. There should still be some size Sunday but it might be more user friendly . That should continue through to Tuesday, but then drop of rapidly.
By Thursday it’ll be small to flat… before another winter swell arrives Friday from the South to start another surf cycle.
Saturday: should be around 3-4 metres at places open to dead South swell… may get something in protected corners
Sunday: 2-3 metres dead South spots
Monday: 2 – 2+metres South East
Tuesday: 2 metres or so South East
Wednesday: going down rapidly say 1 metre or so North East
Thursday: small to flat
Friday: starting to come up again from the South, in the 1-2 metre range.

Quick TG Forecast for Friday

Posted on July 12th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on July 6th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Wednesday update: Swell is slowly easing back.. still some punch at open beaches but becoming more user friendly. Still best left to fit nad experienced. Sunny blue sky Just saw someone having a swim like it was summer..sure 10 degrees feels like 6.

Sunday update: It’s currently 1 metre and plus with plenty of people out at places open to the South. Not much wind, almost glassy conditions – if you want to add to the crowd.  The Bureau has a dangerous surf warning up today.

Saturday update… Yep… like it says below… 1 metre rideable at some places, not at others.  cold offshore W/NW wind which will pick up as the day goes on.  Water temp is a coolish 18. Have Fun!

Surf forecast issued Friday 6 July 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Wind’s been blowing hard WNW for a good part of the day, and the Bureau is expecting some more windy days ahead.  The initial effect has been to decrease the size of the ENE swell that was coming in earlier, but after a day or so it’ll start to come up from the South.

At first there’ll be a lot of SW in the swell so most of that will be headed out to sea.  How much then results in rideable surf on a day to day basis is always difficult to judge, but TG’s best guess is below…

Saturday: down from today but it should still be around 1 – 1.5 metres or so from North East

Sunday: starting to come up at places open to dead South swell… say around 1 metre or so, increasing with the wind turning SW

Monday: could be around 2 metres or so at places open to dead South but unfortunately accompanied by southerly winds

Tuesday: similar size surf but the wind might be better

Wednesday: easing back through the 1-2 metre range dead South

Thursday: around 1 metre or so South East

Friday: similar.

Have fun !
