The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 22nd, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 22 June 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The Low that’s been sending all those waves this week is slowly moving away to NZ.  If it continues to track as expected, it’ll still have an influence on the surf at most Sydney beaches for the next couple of days, after which those places open to dead South swell should be the go. Conditions look like being good with some offshore or light wind days until Thursday, for those who don’t mind the cool air temps.

Water temp is around 20, 21.

Younger people will be keen and strong enough to handle it all, while mature ladies and gentlemen will decide for themselves. You can work out the category you fit. Everyone should watch the surf for a while to check the set pattern before going out.  Have fun. Stay safe.

Friday: towards the upper end of the 1-2 metre range East South East, with sets from the East

Saturday: 1-2 metre range South East, with sets from the East

Sunday:  1-2 metre range at places that get dead South swell, and with some sets

Monday: down in the 1-2 metre range dead South, still with sets

Tuesday: 1-2 metre range at dead South places

Wednesday: around 1, 1+ metres dead South

Thursday: down, 1 metre or so dead South.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 15th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.
Surf forecast issued Thursday 15 June 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:
Quick forecast…We know how changeable the weathef has been…so current poutlook is for Waves all week, mostly small to medium, but also with wind at times. The swell is likely to come up from due South on Monday but will mostly be going straight past because of the SSW direction. Down the next day, then up, then down again…Think I’m feeling seasick.
Friday: in the 1-2 metre range South East
Saturday: around 1 metre or so East, but with larger sets from the South East from time to time
Sunday: around 1 metre or less South East
Monday: coming up from the dead South outside, but not a lot on the beach..maybe 1-2 metre
range at places open to dead South swell
Tuesday: about 1 metre dead South places only
Wednesday: coming up from East…1-2 metre range with some power behind it
Thursday: down again to around 1 metre or so East.
Complex isn’t it….

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 9th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast reissued Friday 9 June 2017:

Six day outlook for Sydney:

Oh dear… there’s a long weekend coming up, and I know you’re keen to know…

But let me just state at the outset… It’s not my fault!

Quick summary>>> I’d suggest you swallow the pill quickly>>>

It’s not looking very good.

Showers, SE/ S wind most days, and surf that would be pleasant enough if it weren’t for the fact that’ll it be windblown rubbish at places open to the South, and the short period won’t be enough for much to swing around into sheltered southern corners.

Looking on the bright side:  It will stop raining and blowing and the sun will come out…

sometime in the future.

And who knows.. Lows are notoriously changeable, so the wind might ease off or blow offshore, the waves smooth out, and the sun come out sooner than expected…so dream on. 🙂

In the meantime, be flexible like the reed and bend with the wind. There are always other things to do.

Surf

Saturday: somewhere the 1-2 metre range South East, and windblown, at open beaches

Sunday: ditto, again

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range South East, and windblown…

Tuesday: at this stage looks like around 1 metre or so South East, windblown

Wednesday, Thursday: ditto at places open to dead South swell.

Have fun!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 1st, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 1 June 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

It only seems a few days, less than a week in fact, since I last had a surf, but already the sudden onset of wintry conditions over the last couple of days has made it less appealing to me to want to get wet … and I suspect, a lot of other people.  But I’m sure we’ll get some nice days ahead through winter, and the water is still warmish, so don’t fret just yet. Out of the chilly wind it feels fine, but the windchill has been dropping morning air temps of 9 or 10 down to 2 or 3!

The large waves at places open to dead South swell today are likely to be there again tomorrow, then gradually ease back to Wednesday when it looks like coming up again at dead South spots.

A word of caution for those who are keen to just go out anyway… watch for the sets for a while before you go in.  That cold wind can sap your energy quicker than you think, and remember Dirty Harry’s words: “A man’s GOT to know his limitations” … That applies more and more to those of us who “used to go out in ‘that’ size”.  There are no lifesavers on patrol watching in case you need help. Surf with a mate. Open beaches are not the place for beginners this week.

Friday: around 2. 2+ metres at places open to South swell, with a fair period meaning some of it might get into  corners normally protected from South swell

Saturday: down a little, but still upper end of 1-2 metre range at dead South places

Sunday: easing back more, size and period,  in the 1-2 metre range dead South

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range South East, smaller period

Tuesday: around 1 or some metres at first then could start to come up later at dead South places

Wednesday: around 2, 2+ metres looks like at this stage, easing back in the 1-2 metre range dead South

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range South East

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on May 25th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 25 May 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Weather looks good for the weekend and early next week, with corresponding moderate to small surf conditions until later in the week.  As with today, there’ll be waves to ride at some places at the right tides if you want have some exercise. If you just want to get wet, the water temp is starting to edge down the scale slowly. More cool mornings will probably see most people staying away till the day warms up, so you’ll have it all to yourself 🙂

Surf:

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range South East and with enough of a pulse to get into some places the small dead South swell today didn’t

Saturday:around 1, 1+ metre South East with an occasional slightly bigger one from time to time

Sunday: around 1, 1+ metre of North East windswell

Monday: down, 1 metre or less

Tuesday: around 1 metre or less with a possible little pulse showing at times at places open to dead South swell

Wednesday: probably similar – despite larger dead South swell offshore going straight past – until later when there might be a little pulse showing on beaches open to the South

Thursday: at this stage it’s looking like being in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places.

TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted on May 18th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast, Surf Reports.

Surf Forecast issued Thursday 18 May 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney  :

Well as we know, we live in an active part of the world for weather …variety is the spice of life… and surf conditions may be prone to change in a somewhat inconsistent manner, so here’s the outlook as she’s currently looking:

Medium to large surf all week, with extra large long period sets to surprise punters from time to time.  Keep your eyes ooen and watch the surf for a whike before you rush in. Not looking suitable for beginners on many days, especially with the shallow banks currently at places like Palmie and the Queenscliff to Manly stretch ..even at high tide there are strong rips in places and shallow water is where a lot of accidents happen…and as for rock fishermen…you’ll be safer at home on many days. Check the BoM warnings also from day to day.

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East with bigger oomphier sets at places that get dead South swell

Saturday: 1-2 metre North East windswell

Sunday: 1-2 metre range East South East but with bigger sets from time to time

Monday: coming up around 2 metres or more South East with bigger sets

Tuesday: easing a bit 1-2 metre range South East with bigger sets

Wednesday: down more to say 1, 1+ metres East South East, with bigger sets from time to time

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range at dead South spots.

Take care

Surf forecast issued Thursday 11 May 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Should still be some waves tomorrow similar to today’s conditions, then easing back to smaller all week but enough of a wave to ride on most days.  If you decide to go for a dip swimming don’t be fooled by small wave size….watch out for tricky rips that small surf can often generate.

Surf

Friday:in the 1-2 metre range from South East, still with some feeling

Saturday: down to about 1 metre East

Sunday: about 1 metre East with occasional slightly bigger sets

Monday: ditto

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on May 4th, 2017 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 4 May 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

If you’re somewhere where the South swell has been going straight past, that’ll continue for the next few days.  If you’re somewhere open to dead South swell you’ll be happy to know there will be some waves for the next few days.  If you’re at either places, it may be too bbigg for you for a few days after that (depending on what a Low expected to happen south of Tassie does)… Is that clear???

Friday: around 1 metre or so at dead South places, and with bigger sets… and elsewhere, what do you think???

Saturday: slightly smaller but ditto

Sunday: less than 1 metre dead South

Monday: coming up from the South with timing and size say around 2 -3, 3+ metres or so, dependent on the formation and track of the aforementioned Low

Tuesday:  down slightly ditto

Wednesday: 1-2 or 2+ metres South East (ditto proviso)

Thursday:1-2 metre range East South East, with occasional sets from the North East!

Enjoy.
