Ballito Bay to Richards Bay

 

Wednesday 10 July 2019

Should be fun waves open coast Wednesday with light to moderate NW landbreezes with a hint of devils wind. Surf looks 4-5' early on open coast, easing. Sunny and warm. Thursday again, fun calm dawnie but smaller, 2-3' open coast. Mild skank becomes moderate skunkage beasterly on-sore. Sunny and warm. Friday a stiff devils wind NNW starts the day, then a SW buster hammers thro late morning. Skunked. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday a fresh leftover SE onshore unsettles the sea. The swell has picked up or is picking up, to 4-6' open coast, maybe bigger. Wind ends up East of NE moderate to manky. Partly cloudy and warm with light showers. Sunday more mankage open coast. Dawnie MIGHT have some. But might shut early. Fresh beasterlies due. Swell still 4ft open coast. Sunny and warm.
