Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Monday 30 March 2020

Good news! The 18 second swell yesterday never came! Yay! But Monday shows horrible long gapped sets to 4-5' at 15 second intervals in clean light SSE winds to start, puffing fresh S. Yech! Seems the swell came overnight. Terrible news. Stay at home. Muizies is crap. Yay! Sunny and warm. Tuesday the third swell in five days arrives, damn! Watch as 6ft sets build to 6-10ft+ @ 16s intervals with light S winds going fresh to strong SSE. Horrible! Too good. Wind crap. Dangerous currents. Sharks everywhere. Spitting locals. And cobras. Stay home. Invent memes and kak jokes for dissemination to sixteen Whatsapp groups. Muizies onshore and messy. Yippee! Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday don't worry, it's still terrible. Rather run around your garden doing circuits using pots as weights and the boerbul as bait. Six foot barrels on peagreen sand banks in crisp offshores? So shit. So shit. It's amazingly shit. It's never been shitter. It's so tremendously shit that it is really terrific to see how shit it is. Fake news! Make America Great Again! Sunny and hot. What horrid surf Thursday it is terrible. Rather stay home. A 4-6' west swell cracks on open coast in pure SE to E offshore. Horrid! Putrid. Nasty. Stay home. Sunny and hot. Friday a disgrace. Just horrible. So crap. Clean leftover 2-4' lines in horribly light, crisp offshore SE. Sunny and hot.
