Plett to Port Alfred

 

Thursday 13 June 2019

Thursday fires in the west towards PE side, but Slumtown side could puff sideshore south today. Not strong, but a bit unwelcome. However, could be a clean offshore at dawn. If so, cooking 8-10ft surf open coast, with long lulls due to west direction in the swell. This makes many spots way smaller and more inconsistent than the forecast suggests. Partly cloudy and cool. Friday stiff N winds mess with a leftover 4-5' SW groundswell. Due to ease mid to late arvi, opening up options as breeze switches to clean crisp NW devils breeze. Sunny and warm but chilly early! Saturday an epic long range 18 second groundswell fills in today, but might be messed up by stiff N again. However, it should drop in arvi, if not earlier, opening up some epic surf options. Sunny and warm. Sunday firing on the dawnie 6ft+ open shores with kiff landbreezes. The beast wind onshore lurks, puffing moderate to miff then fresh to nasty later. Sunny and warm. Monday a stiff straight W buster slenters past. If not too strong, there are waves, with continued 4-6' along open coast. Tomorrow dawnie fires too! Wow.
