The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 January 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Fires, smoke, bluebottles and now storms on the way…Can’t complain you live dull lives with all that variety. Southerly’s on the way with oomph.

There were waves through the week with size, quality and attractiveness varying from beach to beach depending on conditions. Many of the good ones were suitable for the keen, fit, able and young, but for this the right boards are necessary, and the use of custom longboard surfboards which you can get online could be great for this exact purpose.

After all the Bushfire and Poor Air Quality Alerts last week, I hope you’re not alerted out. The alert for this week from the BoM  is possible Thunderstorms almost every day. Just remember to exit areas out in the open – eg the Beach  and the Ocean  – if there rumblings and flashes on the way, unless you’re an idiot and want to play Lightning Strike roulette

The outlook for the coming week is for more size at times with the quality and attractiveness being suitable at different locations. It’ll be interesting to see how it pans out.

Friday: coming up from South East somewhere in the 2  1-2 metre range with some punch at times, but with S wind…Try those protected corners and see what it looks like

Saturday: ditto with North East and South East swells

Sunday: dittoish East South East

Monday: same same East North East

Tuesday: down a little East North East

Wednesday: similar Eastish

Thursday: around 1 metre or so North East.

Have fun. Stay safe.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on January 9th, 2020 in Goat's Forecast.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 9 January 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

How good was it to breathe clean air today if you were on the coast. You would have been lucky to find your way to the beach yesterday through the thick smoke and mist that hung around all day… which wouldn’t have been healthy for surfing… if the surf was good… which it wasn’t. The air was better today because the wind was pretty much onshore for East to South East from way out.. Air quality was good, surf quality was bad. So many things to keep track of these days…

DPI’s Index in the weather forecast (below) lately seems to regularly say Poor Air Quality covering all of Sydney which is a big place, while the BoM says eg Smoke haze mainly in the west…

TG has his own Air Quality Index for the beach…

See smoke, smell smoke = Bad

Don’t see smoke, don’t smell smoke = Good.

Surf outlook, and quality, continues to be dominated by frequent wind changes, so take advantage of conditions when you can

Friday: smaller than today but somewhere in the 1-2 metre range East South East

Saturday: Up at places open to dead South as a result of a southerly change expected to come through after midnight Fri night, but windy and not much likely to get into protected corners

Sunday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South, not much in protected corners

Monday: going down, ditto

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range South East, with onshoreish wind

Wednesday: bit smaller but.. form the East, with North East wind early on, before it changes South

Thursday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East

On the positive side hopefully the frequent wind changes will enable more backburning to help get some more fires under control. And in other good news, the Bureau seems to think (see below) we’ve turned the corner with the first Tropical Cyclone of the season crossing land, and while there could be some more hot days in the next few months, extreme conditions look like easing according to BoM.

BoM Climate outlook extract

Climate influences

  • The positive Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), which contributed to the dry and warm conditions across much of Australia during winter-spring 2019, has ended.
  • Likewise, a recent persistent negative phase of the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) has also weakened, with forecasts of SAM now fluctuating in the neutral range.
  • With these two major drying influences easing, the likelihood of drier than average conditions has weakened. Outlooks broadly indicate equal chances of wetter or drier conditions, with no widespread extreme conditions forecast. However, it is seasonally the hottest and drier time of the year for southern Australia.
  • While tropical Pacific Ocean temperatures are likely to stay warmer than average, the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is expected to remain neutral into 2020 and have a limited influence on Australian climate.
  • Abnormally warm sea surface temperatures in the western tropical Pacific Ocean and to the west of Australia may also be contributing to some changes in weather patterns over the continent, while warm and dry soils over the continent—a legacy of Australia’s warmest and driest year on record in 2019—are keeping temperatures warmer than average.
  • In addition to the natural drivers such as ENSO and the IOD, Australian climate patterns are being influenced by the long-term increasing trend in global air and ocean temperatures.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast
The surf outlook
With more variable winds ahead, the outlook is again for more variable surf.  If you head to the beach not expecting to find great conditions, then you won’t be disappointed!
I wouldn’t expect anything approaching good quality, but there should be something from time to time if you feel the need to get wet, or are desperate, or both. And the surf is very tide dependent in places.
Friday: smaller than today, say around 1 metre East
Saturday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East windswell (bigger at southern ends, where it’ll be windier
Sunday: similar or up a bit ahead of a forecast Southerly change
Monday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range but only at places that get dead South swell
Tuesday: ditto in the 1-2 metre range South East
Wednesday: ditto and going down East
Thursday: around 1 metre East South East
With tourists being told to leave bushfire zones on the South Coast, https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/dangerous-fire-conditions/predicted-fire-spread-for-new-years-eve, it goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway, that if you were thinking of heading away in the present circumstances… Don’t.
Air quality from smoke is likely to become a bit how do you do….
Stay Healthy. Stay Safe.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 26 December 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The good news for this week is>>>Waves – of varying sorts – all week.  Don’t get too excited… It will be mainly NE windswell but there should be enough of it from time to time at the right places to catch a wave… So, bigger at the Southern ends of beaches, where it’ll be windier too … You can’t have everything.

Friday: 1-1+ metres East North East and starting to come up later

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range North East

Sunday: up a bit more in the 1-2 metre range through the day North East

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range North East

Tuesday: 1-2 metre range East North East

Wednesday: 1-2 metre range Eastish

Thursday: Ditto

Have a safe and Happy New Year.

Trust we’re all seeing with 2020 vision next year.. It’s a joke. Get it?

The Goat’s Christmas Surf Forecast and Message

Posted on December 20th, 2019 in Goat's Forecast.

The Goat’s Christmas Surf Forecast and Message

Surf forecast issued Friday 20 December 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Hey hey only five more sleeps to Christmas Day.

Which is one reason the forecast is a day late… Santa needs his little/ big helpers.. The other is, I’ve been having Fun!!

First then the surf outlook…

Some more chopping and changing winds ahead, to 1 make the surf choppy and changeable, and slow down the momentum of much swell building, and b just be helpful enough to blow the same smoke and a bit more back and forth…although hopefully there could be some periods in the coming week when there are exceptions to both.  So we’ve got good news and bad news.  Are you with me so far??

Then TG’s advice is to focus on the good news.

Good news is there should be some waves from time to time, the air should be clear from time to time and the Bureau says we might even get a few drops of rain if we’re lucky,

Saturday: around 1 ish metres South East, then coming up at dead South spotz (new word for 2020), with a Southerly change much later

Sunday: somewhere around 2, 2+ metres at those dead South spotz, only, then down somewhat later

Monday:around 1-1+ metres South East

Tuesday: around 1ish metres, sort of Eastish

Wednesday (Chrissy Day): dittoish sort of, maybe a little bigger for you to try out all the new toys

Thursday (Boxing Day): coming up at dead South spotz (what? you’re sick of TG’s Experimental English already.. too bad) say 2 – 2+ metres South… with onshorew ind currently forecast might be a good day for you to kick back and watch the start of the Sydney Hobart on TV… unless you’re in it

Friday: similar.

Now you know how Santa Know’s who’s been naughty and nice… well this summer there have been more than a few people who’ve been beyond naughty to outright criminal. Yesterday, a total fire ban day I saw a dill driving and flicking his ash out his car window.. I couldn’t get close enough to give him some advice in my native Australian English tongue, but hopefully someone else reported him.

TG’s Nice Award goes to the four local teenage kids who asked me (in my surf patrol uniform) could they hand in to me , a mobile phone they found in the carpark with the guy’s drivers licence and credit cards in it. (he was happily reunited with it later)  I hope they get everything they want for Christmas!

Have fun..Stay safe… Have a very Happy Christmas!!

The Goats Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 5 December 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Lots of wind changes ahead according to the BoM forecast below.

That will keep surf levels down and blow smoke back in your face that you thought had gone away… Personally Im limiting my outdoor exercise to times when the smoke isnt around.

But at least youll be able to get in the surf… Its only a few years back that it was unhealthy to go in the surf because of the murky runoff from the Hawkesbury after torrential rains!…

https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/warragamba-dam-set-to-spill-on-monday-as-heavy-rain-falls-on-sydney-20160619-gpmomm.html

There should be some fun waves around from time to time, at the right place, right tide, right wind, right board, for the right rider!

The surf outlook in short..

Friday: around 1 metre or less at places exposed to dead South

Saturday:  around 1 metre or maybe a fraction more on sets at dead South spots

Sunday: ditto

Monday: ditto

Tuesday: ditto North East

Wednesday: ditto East

Thursday: ditto dead South

Stay healthy. Have Fun!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 28 November 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Some warm, smokey days ahead with flip floppy winds and not much surf.

At least the water temp has gone up a little to make for some comfort…on those warm, smokey days ahead with flip floppy winds and not much surf…

Might get a spot of rain according to the Bureau..that’ll freshen the air a little together with the breeze changes

Friday: 1 metre or less North East

Saturday: around 1 metre North East then smaller

Sunday: maybe around 1 metre or so at dead South places only

Monday: probably less than 1 metre

Tuesday: 1 metre or less at dead South places only.

If the surf outlook’s the worst thing you’ve got to worry about anyway, then you’re laughing 🙂

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

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

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

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

Sick of the bushfire smoke here… imagine what it’s like for people up the coast.

Scientific analysis of How Bushfires start in Oz … “The majority of bushfires are started either intentionally or unintentionally by people.”

https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2019-11-20/bushfire-ignition-source-how-we-know/11701132

Being aware of the causes can help reduce the risk of fire in hot dry weather conditions.

In between staying inside out of the smoke to stay healthy, and looking at the surf, there hasn’t been much surf to miss out on.

With more flip flopping wind changes and smoke haze forecast by the Bureau, don’t expect much joy in the days ahead.  At least the water’s getting to a more comfortable temperature for a cool down swim.

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

Saturday: 1 metre or so North East, to be chopped around by Southerly and E/SE onshore wind

Sunday: around 1ish metres East North East then South East, and ditto re wind from S/SE

Monday: around 1 metre Eastish

Tuesday: 1 or 1+ metres North East

And, beyond that I can’t see through the pesky smoke haze at the moment…

Leave you with a couple of thoughts:

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

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

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 14 November 2019:

Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Waves popped up this morning at places open to dead South swell, but it was short lived and has eased back now. To be precise the swell height didn’t actually pop up, but the period did, so more energy was able to get in to receptive beaches.

The outlook, with variable winds and weather forecast, is not looking too exciting.

Let’s keep it rooly simple… cause that’s what I am>>>

Any waves are likely to get in to places open to dead South… other places aren’t likely to see anything much…

Friday – next Thursday: If it’s 1 metre ish or so dead South, be happy.

If it’s not, still be happy.
