Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

 

Weekend 4 April 2020

Rejoice! Look out your flat and behold! Kak conditions Friday as a shtonking NE onshore turns the ocean into salty peasoup: a 2-3' swell turns into a snot-dribbled mess. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday yah! yay! Whoopee! Miff horrible onshore smashes it again. Kiff bru! Stay at home. Exercise tip #1: Starve boerbul. Rub braaied lamb all over body. Take walk in garden. Instant workout! Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday the sea is a mess, the onshores continue, the swell is smaller and messed up completely. This is brilliant news! It's a wonderful day to be at home. Sunny and warm to hot. Monday oops. The damn wind has become offshore SW. Lets hope its flat. But there are waves down the coast. Bummer. If you think you're sad, think about the JBay ous. It's 6-8ft and off its tits and they're at home. Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Tuesday now the buster is thro properly, and a whole lot of wind and swell has totally blasted the points out of town with out of control conditions. Yay! The bummer tho is that in the Durbs basin, there could be cleanish 3-4' lines from a dik 8ft+ ocean SSW groundswell, particularly in the arvi. Please let it not cook. Only 10 days to go! #stayhomeSA - Cloudy and warm with showers.
