Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

 

Wednesday 10 July 2019

Could be waves on points down coast early Wednesday in light landbreeze or devilish N but a light to moderate West later, so could be a good surf day in general. Town much smaller, maybe 2'. Clean early. Sunny and warm. Thursday again, fun calm dawnie 3-4' down coast, 1-2' in town, and clean before mild skank becomes moderate skunkage beasterly on-sore. Sunny and warm. Friday a stiff SW buster hammers open coast stukkend. Town protected but the big swell hitting the Cape does not arrive. Looks flat barring building windswell open coast and chunks building on horizon. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday urk! A cranking 16 sec swell has arrived open coast (small 2-3' sets on northern beaches for potential dawnie?). But. The. Blerry. Onshore. A stiff yeasterly beast wind puts paid to it all. Sob. Dawnie MIGHT have some. MIGHT. IF so, it FIRES down coast. Small fun in town if so. Then its kak. Swell solid six foot plus open coast. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday noooo! More mankage down coast. Again, small dawnie window. But might shut early. Staunch beasterlies continue. Swell still 4-6ft+ down coast. Small town. Yech. Sunny and warm.
