Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Tuesday 11 February 2020

A moderate becoming fresh yeast wind onshore kills a 2-4' swell along open coast Tuesday mangled and messy into the arvi. Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday the NE beasterly winds up into a paper shredder ... even stronger yeasterlies kap it sut, while a mangled windswea washes ashore 2-5ft, and getting quite dik due to intense short range wind velocities. Schtonking. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Thursday also laid low by a honking beast wind. A pity because a swell fills in today, but no cigar, altho the winds wane from the west and soon it will switch offshore west. Sunny and hot. Friday a huge differnce, with kiff seas after a good few hours of landbreeze magic, and getting better with a kiff 4-5' new SW groundswell at punchyish 14 sec intervals. Kiff sets when they come. Glassy to crisp light offshore all morning. A bunk work, run away from home, break out of choekie kind of day. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday swell wanes, and east onshore back, mild to miff and middling to nowhere barring chance of dawnie. Partly cloudy and warm.
