Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Friday 20 September 2019

A horrible leftover beasterly kills off Friday although the west switch will come through in the arvi, from about 3 or 4pm or so. Too late she cried. Plensh solid 3-5' NE windswell or bigger. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday a moderate crisp W offshore and building 6ft or bigger SW swell suggests good waves today. Offshore lasts all morning, slowly easing to glassy and calm or light variable S to SE. Lekker! Partly cloudy with showers. Sunday a new gruntswell is shunted ashore by a big fat SW buster, whipping white caps with alacrity. It's 20kts+ smashing thro to neargale 30kt gusts in arvi. A lot of 3-5' SE windswell mixed into the groundswell. Wild and woolly and washy Winnifred. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Monday cooks bru! Proper 6-8ft surf (slowly easing) in crisp offshore W. Naaas! Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Tuesday 3-4' inconsistent west swell in kiff SW offshore. Wind goes strong S later so get in early. Partly cloudy and cool with showers.
