The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 18 November 2021: Seven day outlook for Sydney

TG is having a well earned (so he says) break from his hectic (so he says) normal (so he says) life, and is currently chilling out at one of his favourite places anywhere … Australia’s most easterly point. If you don’t know where that is, he’s not going to tell you.

It’s so peaceful and relaxed up here – at the moment – that it reminds him of those halcyon days in FNNSW, PPQ and BPs (Far North NSW, Pre Pesky Queenslanders and Backpackers spoiling the Natural Vibe, clogging the surf and the streets).

The only downside is there’s not really any surf to write home about. But hey, the weather’s warm, the water’s warm, the Vibe is cool, and it’s PPQ and BPs! (TG is sure they say the same about people south of the border and east and west and north! but it can’t stay like that forever).

Even while he’s away though, he thinks of you.. What a guy…

Sydney Surf Outlook

So the surf outlook for Sydney looks like being smallish but rideable for the weekend, then briefly responding to the puffs and rain from a Low expected to develop off the far South Coast on Monday, and possibly OK ish for the next few days after that >>> Up here it looks like continuing small, but Good vibes, Captain ūüôā

Friday: around 1 ish metres or so East South East

Saturday: dittoish, Eastish

Sunday: ditto ditto

Monday: coming up briefly, say 2 ish metres or so South East

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

Wednesday: down a little in the 1-2 metre range East

Thursday: ditto

Enjoy it when you can and while you can.
