The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on January 4th, 2018

Surf forecast issued Thursday 4 January 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

There were some rideable waves in the lower reaches of the 1-2 metre range this morning for keen punters at some places open to pretty much dead South as a result of the strong SSE wind we had over the past couple of days, before the tide got into it. Boy that’s a long sentence for you to get stuck into if you want. Lower reaches ??? He’s talking in riddles.

But they’ve already eased back.  See… Shorter sentences make more sense and are easier to read. But I don’t have time to rewrite it more nicer.

What’s that you say?? …Just get on with it???

Quick summary for you… Small waves. Possibly some mal rides at the right tides, right places. Keep your eyes open for opportunities.  Enjoy the warm water and warmer weather. Watch the extreme UVs, plus a couple of days when the Bureau says there might be Tstorms, and take precautions. Stay cool. And keep smiling. (I know they aren’t sentences… Just consider them to be bullet points to start preparing you for the working and study world soon). Keep smiling I said!

Friday: maybe around 1 metre or so or less at places open to dead South

Saturday: ditto

Sunday: around 1 metre or so of North East windswell

Monday: ditto

Tuesday: ditto but a little bit bigger

Wednesday: about the same as Tuesday, maybe a touch more

Thursday: about 1 metre or so North East

The king tides (Highs over 2 metres) we’ve had over the past few days will gradually start to ease back. But they will still be high Highs and low Lows (say that quickly) for a while.
