TG’s Quick Thursday Report and Brief Forecast for Friday

Posted on July 19th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Thursday: flat as a tack. Nice day though.

Friday outlook: flat as a tack. Hmm well there might be a little tiny North East ripple at some places. If there’s not – it’s flat, and that’s that!

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.

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 !

TG’s Quick Thursday 5 July Forecast…For Friday 6 July 2018

The Goat’s Surf Forecast – Update

Posted on June 28th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Small today, but little rideable waves at places for mals.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 28 June 2018: Seven … no, eight… no, nine day outlook for Sydney:

In an effort to give you the most full-some-est outlook he can, TG has stretched his muscles. strained his eyesight and generally got himself all wound up looking at the week ahead.

But the outlook is pretty much the same whether it’s 1, 5 or 9 days ahead… pretty small.

Now that that might be good news to some people, especially as the weather is supposed to be a little better at times than it’s been . A cruisey little mal wave can be a lot of fun, if the banks are right for those who have to watch their ticker doesn’t overdo it…and for those who don’t want to have to fall too far down off the wave.

So

Friday: smaller than today, say about 1 metre or so East

Saturday: around 1 metre or less North East

Sunday: ditto but at places open to dead South

Monday: about 1 metre or so at dead South places

Tuesday: ditto South East

Wednesday: ditto East

Thursday: ditto ditto

Friday: 1 metre or so North East

Saturday: 1 metre or less South East.

Get out and have some fun…maybe wait till it stops raining… or wait till tomorrow. The BoM says the temp at 4 pm Thursday is currently about 11 but feels like 4.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 20th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Wednesday 20 June 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Early forecast this week..

Why?..

Just because I can..

It feels like it’s been cold and wet and windy forever, and it’s only been a couple of days!  Surf conditions have been less than attractive for most people and, as I haven’t seen any whales at all for the last couple of days (previous days random counts 27, 15, 41..), I suspect they too are sheltering from the unpleasant ocean conditions, in protected corners or bays, before continuing their northward journey.

But with weather conditions generally improving over coming days there could be some surfable waves for the keen people, and whales might start to appear again.  The surf outlook looks like this:

Thursday: easing back from today, but still in the upper 1-2 metre range East South East

Friday: ditto (TG is a goat of few words)

Saturday: dittoish, maybe down slightly, but still with sets

Sunday: could be a little change in direction, with waves starting to come up in the 1-2 metre range from dead South at those places that are open to them

Monday: upper end of the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South swell

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: ditto again.

Hope you have a good one.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 14th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 14 June 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Most people seemed to be happy that the weather and waves of the past week have passed by, judging by the number of smiling faces who turned up today at the right tide/time combination, despite the chilly wind.  The water temp was fine.

A deceptive little surf.  It looked flat to very small early on, then lines started to show, but the waves were still pleasantly sized and quality brushed by the offshore wind…

Until the sets arrived every so often, with a size and punch quite different to the average (after you left Ray).

If you were unfortunate to be under them (tick, more than once) you had a good workout today…which meant some of us had lower than desirable energy levels when more suitable waves came. Those who caught ’em had fun.  But all that wasn’t long lasting and by twilight it looked like it had calmed down a lot.

Friday: should have calmed down even more than today, say to about 1 metre or so North East, but there should be a little pulse at times from the East

Saturday: W/NW/N winds will eventually flatten it, but there maybe little NE waves.. (or maybe not)

Sunday: waves out to sea, headed toward NZ, but inshore it’ll be all calm.  Disappointing, but you won’t really be disappointed with a 14 max air temp forecast and the windchill keeping that down to an UncomfortableforanAussie level

Monday: what happens from here depends on what a Low expected to form down south does…possibly starting some SW swell.  Got that? SW swell_ not much happening inshore at first… then building up later through the day, and into the night while you’re asleep

Tuesday: Depending on the Low… could be in the 2-3 metre range , or more, at places open to dead South swell… with wind (or not, if it goes somewhere else)

Wednesday: Ditto proviso… maybe 2-3 metres South East, with wind

Thursday: could be similar South East, with some punchy sets.

The whales have started up again in earnest after the rough conditions… saw 9 today, between 5-15 ks out and moving along, keen to get to their holiday up north.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 7th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 7 June 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Today Thursday it’s eased back somewhat but there were but still some decent waves (2-3 metres, 6-10 sec from East South East) for those with the skills, the endurance and the desire, at the right places. And it looks like there’ll be some more waves in the week ahead. But whether they are suitable or not will depend on your abilities and inclinations.

If the waves don’t look appealing to you over the long weekend, something else for you to do, or even as well as…

The Avalon Beach Historical Society will celebrate its 35th year by holding the 9th Great Historic Photographic Exhibition in the main hall Avalon Beach Recreation Centre, 59a Old Barrenjoey Rd AB, 10am-5pm Saturday-Monday, which will include material on the introduction of the malibu at Avalon Beach in 1956.  Learn about the ancestry of the board you’re riding today, as well as seeing some great old photos of the beaches and the local area.

Friday: down a bit from today, but still in the upper end of the 1-2 metre range East South East early on, then going down through the day.

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range East (could be OK with an offshore N/NW wind)

Sunday: coming up overnight at places that are open to dead South, 1-2, 2+ metres at those spots but with wind behind it. Places that are sheltered from the S/SW wind will also be sheltered from the swell

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East, with SW wind to chop it somewhat

Tuesday: -2 metre range South East with a little punch to it

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

Thursday: 1-2 metre range East South East but with a bit of punch.

Marine wildlife is around. Don’t be mistaken for a seal.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on May 31st, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 31 May 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Tomorrow is the first day of Winter! and there’ll be a 17 max temp to welcome you…not to mention a big windchill to make it feel even colder.

There’s been strong SSW/S 40-50 kph winds and cold air today. It’s only reached 16 so far with an apparent temp of 7.

I see rolling swells out to sea, but inshore it’s still rather modest. Ships off Newcastle have weighed anchor and have headed out to sea to ride out some expected nasty conditions.

Some of the models aren’t automatically updating themselves.   No doubt wanting to see what a Low that forms off the coast is expected to do, which will tweak the numbers and direction.

If the Low does what TG thinks, there will be a lot of SW in it, which will keep the nevertheless sizable swell inshore, not as big as out where the ships will be.

Overall, TG doesn’t see much attraction in thinking about getting wet in the ocean and trying to ride a surfingboard over its surface for the next several days…

Friday: up from today, into the 3-4 metre range, shortish period at dead South places.. and windy and cold Yumm

Saturday: around the 3-4 metre range dead South, with bigger sets from South East.. and windy and cold

Sunday: in the 3-4 metre range, maybe bit bigger but shortish period…and windy and cold

Monday: 2-3ish metres range East South East.. with wind and cold

Tuesday: let’s say, dittoish

Wednesday: oh, and ditto

Thursday: 1-2 metre range South East.

Ok… a bit of a bummer for most normal people.

Just relax chillout chillax and listen to this week’s oldie but a goodie.
