Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Thursday 21 May 2020

Stiff NE onshores smash a 4-6' x 15sec groundswell Thursday so no need for more gnawing of the knuckles nor emotional sobbing. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Friday conditions improve in moderate SSW that goes glassy to light S followed by a whiff of onshore S to SE. A proper 6ft+ swell hits open coast. Bigger sets towards evening. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday the swell quite west so inconsistent, but conditions are so kiff bru. And the swell jacks in arvi going a SOLID 8ft by evening on open coast. Some great waves today. Evening glassoff caps an epic surf day. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday more epicness. Cranking 6-7' lines in crisp SW offshore to light NW, puffing light to moderate N by lunch, with a NNE to NE onshore wobble into the arvi. Sunny and warm. Monday big winter storm on way, with crisp freshening NW to W dawn patrol vigorously brushing 8ft sets, but rapidly dissolving into a pearshaped mangle. There was a band called Winthrip Mindwarp and the Mangleheads. About right brah. By 9am, big white caps appear as a staunch W buster comes cracking up from the Western Cape, smashing thro at 45 knots by early to mid arvi. Hoooge swell builds, with 40foot seas ripped asunder off the coast by evening and into the night. Ships beware. Wild Coast will be deadly. Sunny and warm.
