The wind held up, and the swell jacked overnight as a strong surge of SW wind broke away from a giant storm in the deep, off the Antarctic iceshelf. That means that as we move into the semis, the swell should be more consistent with 6'+ sets feasible as the direction goes more south. The semifinalists read like a list of whos who in SA surfing. Whose your money on?
