Ballito to Richards Bay

 

Thursday 13 June 2019

A taste of winter as staunch SSW busters smash the Noord Kussed Thursday ragged and blown out all day. Cloudy and cool with heavy rain showers. Friday lots of south swell at 10 second intervals and leftover S to SE breezes for a sideshore bent. Some groundswell shows on open coast in arvi to 4-5' but the wind is light to moderately miff SE. Partly cloudy and cool with residual showers. Saturday moderate to fresh N winds due to mess with a small S going more SE swell. Dawn patrol has a few. Might be fun 3'. Sunny and warm. Sunday a bit more energy and solid 4' feasible bigger surf with nice long range kiffswell. Winds are epic further down towards Dirtbin, but here you might get N wind skunkage. Moderate NNE to N winds puff. Sunny and warm. Monday more S grunt in the kiffswell today from nice SSW direction and clean, light kiff 3-4' barrels along open coast in the south at dawn. However, a potentially fresh N wind may blow the closer towards Richards Bay you are. Sunny and warm.
