Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

 

Wednesday 6 November 2019

Looks miff from a mangled morning of manky beast wind Wednesday which whips a smeared sea state into a putrid pile of steaming mink manure. Partly cloudy and hot. Thursday stiff S wind blows the coast sideways, and it's not lekker, tho town a little less messy. A 3-4' east windswell makes landfall at the piers. A couple of slightly fleabitten waves potentially rideable if desparate. Cloudy and warm with showers. Friday solid 4-5ft sets feasible open coast - 2 maybe 3' on northern beaches - but fresh SSW winds (S later) still a bit stiff and sideshore for open coast, but much cleaner in town. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday swell down. Wind lighter. After a calm clean start, it goes wobbly yeast onshore moderate to fresh. Leftover 4' waves around down coast, some fun if small peaks in town on the dawnie. Cloudy with rain. Sunday honking beast wind onshore kaps u another 1. A HORRIBLE spurt of onshore up for 4-5 days. The nearshore becomes a mangled discoloured mess. Plenty rain forecast too, so rivers might flood. Miff bru. Miff.
