Plett to Port Alfred

 

Tuesday 25 February 2020

A wildly oscillating week of stiff seesaw winds, with the oos kussed Tuesday in mangled NE beast winds, which wastes a 3-4' SSW swell. Sunny and warm to hot. Wednesday boom. The west is thro. Crisp much cleaner seas. The problem is a lack of swell. Still, you might eke out a few fun 3ft open ocean peaks, maybe even 4 inches bigger. Winds crisp clean moderate to fresh west offshore all day. Evening glassoff. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Thursday fires on dawnie with epic long range 6-8' S swell at a punchy 17 second interval! Nice! Sadly, the wind on the way around to sideshore southerly. The earlier the better. By mid morning, moderate S and getting miff. By noon, miffer SSE. By arvi, major miffery! Schtonking SE onshore. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Friday sad to see the sea so sif. The onshore blows. Messy and broken up, despite underlying 4-6' swell. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday pomping beasterly easterly. That is all. Partly cloudy and cool to warm.
