Easter Weekend 2019

Lekker clean Thursday in light SE breezes and a small smidge of 2 maybe 3' at most on exposed coast. Muizies clean 1' and mild onshore bump. Sunny and warm. Friday flat. A light NW goes moderate and mumpish as a weak cold front scrapes by. Muizies lekker clean. But small. If not tiny to flat. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday ah ha! Now vee talk Boris! New swell builds. It's already 4-6ft in morning, reaching 6-8' by evening. Not that punchy 12 second period, and quite mixed up on account of the storm's proximity. Winds moderate SSW going fresh S. Very west swell, which is good for weskus, bad for Fals Baai, which is mild onshore and small intermittent 1-2'. Partly cloudy with showers. Sunday pumping pure SE winds. Solid surf 5-7' but a taste of summer in the wind strength. Muizies run ragged in blown out onshore. Sunny and warm. Easter Monday blasted by SE neargale. A residual 2-3' x soft 10sec swell smashed flat. Muizies onshore and miff and dirty. Sunny and warm to hot.
