Ballito Bay to Richards Bay

 

Friday 30 August 2019

While a SW buster in the south eases all of Friday up this side looks fresh N to NW but also easing, going light crisp offshore. This bodes well for the general 4-5' SSW swell x 15 second punch. Could be fun in the arvi. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday a fresh N blows in the morning, sucking down from the local High towards an upcoming low pressure system and buster, which arrives with neargale ferocity in mid to late arvi, pumping into the night. Swell options zip to zero. Null and not mooi. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers. Sunday the buster blows hard SSW to S still, but eases all day. Solid swell around, with 6ft+ surf on open coast. The breeze a little too sideshore for epic conditions, but there are spots that might handle. Sunny and warm. Monday fun on open coast in loverly conditions. Light landbreeze, then light variable SE and / or glassy. Should be lekker 3-4'. Bumpy onshore later. Partly cloudy and warm. Tuesday a nice new swell, but hammered by freshening N to NE winds. Might be dawnie 4'. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
