Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Tuesday 9 January 2018

Solid south swell to 8 foot runs open coast Tuesday but a southerly buster in place gusting to 20kts and swinging sideshore southerly. That means not good Ned. Wednesday would be classic dawn patrol surf 4-6'+ with south to southeast swell hitting points. Hope for early landbreeze before predicted moderate southerly going SE onshore. Thursday yech! a ripsnorting neargale beasterly smears a building mishmash easterly mangle-swell to shore, reaching 6ft by evening. Also coincides with 3-4' southerly groundswell that lurks beneath the building surface chaos. Its all happening. The onshore blasts Friday away too, and it's looking terrible like a washed up junkie with white powder all over his face. Saturday aaaaah! Noooooo! The first cyclone swell of the season dissolves in horrid onshores. Otherwise you'd have (like the Eastern Cape is getting) cooking beautiful long period 6ft groundswell with loooong waits between sets runs in glassy seas.
