Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Tuesday 6 August 2019

A staunch W buster dies off all day Tuesday and it FIRES in the arvi if your spot is not out of control 8ft+, which it might be. But the solid 10-12' open coast swell starts the day, easing to 6-8' so might be epic as the frisky west goes lekka light and kiff into the arvi. Partly cloudy and warmish. Wednesday looks 6ft+ but very west direction in a stiff N sideshore that soon ousts the katabatic NW landbreeze, a precursor to a monster buster that's heading this way. However, looks like a stiff NNE wins the day for now. The buster smashes in from the west from 3-4pm, hitting Slumtown by 5 or 6pm. Hammers open coast overnight. Savage galeforce gusts in the night. Sunny and warm to hot. Thursday pomping winter westerlies gust to neargaleforece. Swell is huge, maybe 12ft open coast. Too much of everything. Sunny and cool. Friday could be fun 4-6' SSW surf with fresh west offshore, easing to light and crispy. Nice! Sunny and warm. Saturday 4-6ft at least, but fresh N winds blow. Further to the west towards PE and St Francis, light W offshore should mean kiff waves. The N winds here are sucking down towards a winter bursterly that busts tonight. Dik storm swell and winds due tomorra. Sunny and cool to warm.
