Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

 

Weekend 4 April 2020

Okay reverse emojis are done bru! In the wake of the ridiculously good surf you ous have had lately, Friday still cooking down the coast 3-5' in epic light landbreeze going light W for the morning. Town super fun on northern beaches 3-4' and waves on the piers too. A buster smacks through in the mid to late arvi, and it goes pears open coast. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday wow. Yet another epic, solid 6-8ft SSW groundswell x 15s came through on the coast late yesterday already. Light SW to NW offshores, and we're back to being rid-ik-u-louse again. Wow! Sob! Town 3-4' solid. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday the run of surf is waning. Swell down to 3-5' open coast in light becoming messy moderate N to NNE winds. Have a rest. Have a Zoom meeting. Just don't lean forward. Salt water not good for laptop keyboards. Sunny and warm. Monday so for the first supposedly day you could surf (?) or not, well, it's cool. Just hold on to the memories of those rogue gaping tubes that obliterated your endorphin supplies a couple days. Apart from a possible dawnie landbreeze, moderate becoming kak NE. Swell has gone as well. Sunny and warm. Tuesday beasterly kills it today. Swell gone. Sunny and warm.
