Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

 

Weekend 25 July 2020

The good run is done, and Friday is the first of two days of NNE onshore shreddage. Expect mangled 2-4' open coast surf, and mixed up dirty waters. Sunny and warm. Saturday Same Same. Sunday dawns crisp NW with a mangled peaky 1-4ft sea, a mix of NE, E and SW wind and a smidge of groundswell. Could be worth a little lip bash. A SW buster smacks thro from 4 to 6pm. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Monday leftover S winds blow for meh! crosshores. Waves look 4-5'+ open coast but unless you get a mysto offshore, it doesn't look kiff. Town 2-3' and might be a few mediocre ones. Wind puffs SE onshore in arvi. Partly cloudy and cool, with showers. Tuesday shew! Check the 18s long distance grunt arrives in arvi and evening! A horrid NNE wind puts paid to any hope there. The beasterly is the precursor to a winter buster on way for tomorrow. Sunny and warm.
