Easter Weekend 2019

Easter ok surf wise but Friday sees pestilent morning sickness after a day and even night of onshore. A peaky mixed 4' SSW swell and 2-3' east windswell looks broken up. The onshore might just be blowing early, and not the routine NW. However, the beast wind is due to die off as a W buster approaches in the west, with a crisp moderate west thro late morning Plett side, and early arvi Kowie side. Arvi looks much better. Partly cloudy and hot. A cold front arrives early Saturday and you are white kapped sut brah. A mixed, short period stormsea builds all day - big messy surf on wild side coast. More meat pushes in evening, when sheltered points show promise 4-5'+. Partly cloudy and cool. Sunday could fire at dawn 4-6' before a light S freshens into moderate SE going messy and miff. Partly cloudy and cool and showery. Easter Monday slapped by a big gooey chokkie beasterly bunny onshore from a strong High pressure system south of the country. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Tuesday a honking neargale beast wind bash. Big 3-7ft windsea builds. Ugly. Partly cloudy and warm.
