Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Weekend 25 July 2020

Friday shredded by stiff NNE onshore for mangled 3-5' open coast surf. Sunny and warm. Saturday a hint of berg N wind, but crosshore at times. Similar swell. The N flow is thanks to a big buster on the way for tonight. The N blows fresh in evening as a precursor. Sunny and warm. Sunday the SW pomps. Swell jacks, 3-5ft going on 4-7ft but west direction suggests lank shunted past. Wind yowls all day, going SSW in arvi. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Monday in the wake of the buster, it FIRES. Surf 4-6'+ open coast in kiff glassy dawnie with whiff of west. Cooks all morning. A light E puffs in arvi. May blow moderate to fresh in west towards PE side. Partly cloudy and cool, with showers. Tuesday proper 15s grunt has arrived in form of 6-8ft SW groundswell. Sorry for you, but it pumps NNE or N cross-onshore, another precursor to another big winter buster. Partly cloudy and warm.
