The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 November: Seven day outlook for Sydney

Ah this changable weather… Risked sunburn earlier.. might need an umbrella soon.

No sign of anything large in the way of surf yet, but if the wind strengthens from the South overnight there’ll probably be something tomorrow at places open to the South. The question is will it be useful, with the wind behind it? TG thinks not for Friday, but you never know.

Saturday, Sunday might have some offerings at S swell/NE wind spots.  Monday, Tuesday.. wind driven waves from the North East.

Keep your wits about you and just appreciate Life’s Grand Pageant ūüôā

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at dead South spots, if the wind picks up,

Saturday: easing back say 1-1 + metre range dead South

Sunday: similar

Monday: starting to get pushed up a bit somewhere in the 1-2 metre range North East, bigger and windier at the southern end of the beach

Tuesday: dittoish

Wednesday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range from North East with southerly wind and showers in its face

Thursday: around 1-1+ metres East North East

If you’re looking for some inspiration in your life, try this… Hard to beat on so many levels~~~~~
