Melkbos to Doring Bay


 

Monday 24 February 2020

Hot weather ahead. A nice 4' west swell runs early Monday at first, but wanes and swings inconsistent southerly 2-3' by arvi. Winds are a kiff light SE offshore at first, puffing fresh to strong S. As it does. Sunny and blerry hot. Tuesday lekker clean, calm seas for a few hours from dawn in flat to mirror like seas. A bumpy moderate SW onshore set to blow, easing to light S into the night time. Sunny and horridly hot. Wednesday flat flat morning, with slight pulse to a slow 2' then 3' then 4' but the latter by the time its dark already. Light S early, puffing moderate to fresh S. Partly cloudy and hot. Thursday new swell pulses firmly, with 16 second intent. Sets to 4-5' are slow at dawn and SW in direction, becoming more consistent WSW direction 6ft into the arvi. A fresh S wind up tho. Points therefore better. Pumps a shtonking 25 kts by arvi. Sunny and warm to hot. Friday clean SE early, with 3-5' leftovers, and fun surf surely despite the S in swell direction. Swell wanes. Winds pump SSE to S. Sunny and blerry hot.
