The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on May 16th, 2019 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 May 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Fabulous weather, fabulous water, and what can you say about the waves??

Sometimes they’ve been ok… sometimes not.

The outlook for the week ahead is for mostly more good weather… and mostly more not so good waves.

But who knows… with mostly light winds expected, you might be able to catch a wave at the right tide, right place with the right board…

Let’s keep it simple:

Friday through Wednesday: 1 metre or less at places open to dead South; flat elsewhere

And then Thursday: smaller still! maybe just flat.

Good Luck!  And just chillax.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday (May 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The outlook is mostly small, but there could be nice little waves from time to time.

Friday: 1 metre or less North East

Saturday: could be coming up at places open to dead South but there’ll be a lot of SSW in it. Hard to say …The BoM says “Large and powerful surf…”… but I wouldn’t expect any to be getting into surf spots protected from the South like eg Manly… there might be something up the beach towards Queensie… let’s say in the 1-2, (2+ later) metre range… and let’s see 🙂

Sunday: back down in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places… going down through the day

Monday: around 1 metre or so South East

Tuesday: 1 metre or less East

Wednesday: up a little into the 1-2 metre range at Dead South places

Thursday:down to around 1 metre or so at dead South places

Have fun!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 2 May 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Some rain and showers forecast over the weekend, but there might be some South swell later on from a Low that’s expected to develop off the South Coast.

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range East North East, going down through the day

Saturday: around 1 metre or so East at first before a SW/S/SE wind change pushes up some little messy South swell

Sunday: up in the 1-2 metre range South East with messy S/SW wind

Monday: coming up around 2-3 metre range at places open to dead South swell and wind… a bit might get into protected corners

Tuesday: easing a little, but still around 2- 2+ metres at places open to dead South swell before easing back later

Wednesday: … then a little bit of North East windswell, in the 1-2 metre range

Thursday: .. and then down as the wind blows it out to sea… before some SSW swell might develop

Keeping up ??

Hope you find something suitable.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 25 April 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Fabulous weather for ANZAC Day and great to see ever increasing numbers taking a little time out of such a beaut day to pay their respects for those who’ve served their country at Dawn Services and later Commemorations…

Water temp is a very pleasant 23 ish – great for a swim before or after, but not so great fro a surf with very small to nothing conditions.

Tomorrow morning expect something similar first off, then not a lot resulting from a SW change.  Coming up a little through the week – not a lot – at places that are open to dead South, but quality may not be all that great.

Friday: similar to Thursday at first then even more ordinary

Saturday: coming up into the 1-2 metre range at dead South places only

Sunday: a lot of due South in it so could be going straight past.. 1-2 metres

Monday: 1-2 metre range dead South, with some sets

Tuesday: 1-2 metre range  South East with more getting in

Wednesday: going down to around 1 metre or so East

Thursday: down more 1 metre or less East.

There you go.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 4 April 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

It’s hard to be enthusiastic about the surf outlook on a cool, damp, wet evening, while you’re nursing a mild but nagging surf inhibiting injury.

So you’ll have to be the one who says Yahoo, or Yippee, or whatever it is you say… when the outlook suits you

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range South East

Saturday: similar, but East South East, and bigger sets from South East

Sunday: ditto, East, and a little bigger

Monday: interesting… smaller on average but with bigger sets from the East

Tuesday: around 1ish metres North East

Wednesday: starting to come up at places open to dead South swell

Thursday: in the 1-2 metres at dead South places

Trust there’s something there to your liking.

I’ll probably be watching.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 29 March 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Fabulous weather… blue skies, sunshine, warm air, warm water, and some waves every now and again depending on tides and banks, and setty waves too. More challenging for those of us who can’t get to their feet as quickly as we used to, but lots of fun for those who can.

A few ups and downs in the week ahead but there’ll be waves at certain places and times and sometimes with offshore winds.

Friday: around 1-1.5 metres South East, with occasional sets from dead South

Saturday:  somewhere in the 1-2 metre range from North East

Sunday: around 2 metres or so at places open to dead South swell (with offshore wind)

Monday: ditto (but with light winds, turning SE later)

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: around mid range 1-2 metres at places open to dead South with East South East sets

Thursday: dittoish South East

Keep on surfing…. or paddling around. The water’s nice. Read the rest of this entry »


The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 21st, 2019 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 21 March 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Nothing too thrilling on the horizon as far as surf goes. Small to medium mostly and with various winds. There are some times when light winds or slightly offshore are forecast and you might be able to jag a rideable wave.  Otherwise… just relaaxx.

Let’s keep it simple:

Friday: somewhere in the lower half of the 1-2 metre range from the East (light winds)

Saturday: ditto (light, N,NE, light)

Sunday: down to around 1 metre East (light, SE)

Monday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East (light. NW)

Tuesday: ditto (SW)

Wednesday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places (SSW)

Thursday: ditto (S)

Don’t forget to vote on Saturday.

You know those animals they say can pick the outcome of elections… Well The Goat is running around like a headless chook!  Don’t know what that means.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on March 14th, 2019 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 14 March 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The overriding feature of coming days appears to be rain, wind, and thunderstorms and more rain and wind and thunderstorms.

The surf?  It’ll be messy and you don’t want to be in the water when the thunderstorms are around, and the water will be dirty from the rain runoff.

It’ll be somewhere variously in the 1-2 metre range all week, from the East turning South East later in the week.  There’ll be light winds at times but with residual chop and all things considered I can’t imagine that anywhere will be attractive.  But of course some people will go in anyway,

Oh well we need the rain.

Check back next week.
