Melkbos to Doring Bay


 

Saturday 28 March 2020

The surf is so kak Saturday I would advise you to stay at home. A terrible 4-5' lined up west swell is running on open coast in light S winds puffing moderate. The swell is dropping all day. Sunny and warm. Sunday a new 18 second swell arrives with six foot sets, and pulsing long distance lines. It's shit. Stay at home. A moderate S wind goes fresh to strong in the arvi. Sunny and warm. Monday the long tailed swell continues 4-6' at 15 second intervals. It's the worst surf I have ever seen. Much better to braai, or better still, read a book in bed. Winds light S puffing fresh. Sunny and warm. Tuesday and the third swell in five days arrives. 16 second 6 sets build to 6-8ft in light to moderate S. What crap is this?! Horrible surf. A day for gardening and inventing memes and kak jokes for dissemination in sixteen Whatsapp groups. Partly cloudy and warm. Wedneday solid 8ft sets crack along open coast but it's so shit, so shit. It's amazingly shit. It's never been shitter. It's so tremendously kak, that it is really terrific how awful it is. Fake news! That clean SE offshore in the morning takes the cake for kakness. MAGA! Sunny and hot.
