Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Wednesday 19 July 2017

Conditions over the last three days have been mental! An even bigger swell is on the way! But first a raging buster Thursday puts paid to the dawnie in emphatic fashion. The coast looks a roiling mass of terror and mayhem. Smeared white capped winds kap a solid 6ft swell that starts the day, but it gets bigger and bigger and bigger, ending the day 10-12ft open coast with deep grunted energy and SSW consistent direction. This bodes well for a terrifying dawnie (I should know. I am here) on Friday morning, with points and other spots 6-10ft and mostly too big, barring the odd nook, slab and crannie. Crisp clean W offshore. Gaping barrels. My knees feel weak. The swell gradually wanes all day. Saturday dawnie cooks, this time some sanity prevails. Crisp landbreeze katabatic cold offshore ruffles a beautifully lined 4-6' swell and its firing everywhere. A strong SSW ends that thought. Sunday its over. Barring possible dawnie, the SE puffs, and the swell drops though still solid 3-5'. Monday blown out onshore poop.
