Thursday 17 April 2014

Smilies all round! Thursday weather goes kiff autumnal light variable and small pulsing 4' kiffswell breaks with long lulls. False Bay clean 1' maybe 2'. Moderate south wind in arvi. Friday shows great potential as epic long range 5' swell or maybe bigger in arvi pulses at 17secs (looong lulls) in moderate going fresh SSE. Bodes well for lekker Easter. Muizies mushed. Saturday should fire, despite SE wind upgrade to strong, but pure and straight. Beachies go off 4-5'. Frigid cold. Muizies mushed squished yeaster eggs. Sunday the wind dies into a hot, egg-melting, glassy day. Expect nice 4' surf early, easing to around 3' by dusk. Light E winds. Muizies improves 2-3' windmush going light lumpy fun 2'. Monday lekker glassy and smooth with small 3' surf. Muizies 2' and clean.
