Plett to Port Alfred

 

Wednesday 20 May 2020

We're in for a break from the epicness. Good. Hard to do surf reports when surf is sublime. Also going to revert to normal emojis! Wednesday 3' and miff onshore. Sunny and warm. Thursday a prefrontal N to NW wind puffs fresh to warm at first, then blows stiff SW to W from the buster. A new swell to 4-6' @ punchy 16 second period has arrived, with the brunt building in consistency all day. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Friday you will weep today. Your resolve may crack as 8-10ft lines smash open coast and points fire 4-7ft, with waves at Supers doing your head in. The winds couldn't be better either. Light SW to W offshore. Sob! Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday going off all day again. Similar size. Same winds. Same tears. Sunny and warm. Sunday 4-5'+ lines open coast, although swell direction is very west, so may be inconsistent and smaller. Crisply moderate SW offshore. Eish. Sunny and warm.
