Plett to Port Alfred

 

Thursday 13 June 2019

Bruuu! Thursday fires 6' in clean offshore west winds light and smooth. The swell direction very west, so long lulls likely Larry after the mid-week disappointment caused by honking westerlies blasting the forecast swell sideways and much past the coast. Surf easing as well. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Friday crisp NW devils breezes and more 3-4' west swell, a lot going past. Exposed reefs and beaches best for the dribs. Points picking up the drabs. Sea nice and brushed. Swell too west for proper crankage. Swell due to pick up again, particularly after dark. Sunny and warm but chilly early! Saturday a solid epic 17 second pulse awakens you with a salty snotklap as 6-8ft sets at punchy intervals smack open coast in frisky DEVILS NW landbreezes at dawn. This turns towards a fresh buster by noon. Sunny and warm. Sunday firing on the dawnie 6ft+ open shores with kiff landbreezes, BUT watch the beast wind onshore lurking. It puffs moderate to miff later. Sunny and warm. Monday more winter bliksems past in shape of a strong straight W buster. Mangled conditions, despite optimum wind direction. Goes more SW later, and abates all afternoon, light to moderate by 8pm. Swell 6ft - picks up to 6-8ft by evening. Might be a late sesh. Might.
