Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Monday 30 March 2020

Urk! Avoid the dawnie Monday at all cost. That's because its a solid 4-5ft lined up SSW groundswell on points in light landbreeze offshores. Horrible! Stay home! Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Tuesday good news is that this cracking new swell comes with a horrible on-sore beasterly easterly that blows from early. Excellent news! Stay at home and garden and invent memes and kak jokes for dissemination to 16 Whatsapp groups. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Wednesday a cracking 6ft+ SSW groundswell has arrived. Horrible! BUT. The good news? A strong S wind is too hard and too sideshore S to kill what would be cooking surf. Great. So great. Amazing. So amazing. It's so tremendous, it is really terrific. Make the South Coast Great Again! Open coast surf messy and torn apart, which is great! Cloudy and warm with heavy showers. Thursday wonderful news! A light to moderate miff SE onshore blows, which breaks up the 4-6' surf. Stay home. Do five circuits around the garden. Lift pots. Do situps. Weight lift with the boerbul. Cloudy and warm with showers. Friday damn! A glassy start with clean leftover 4-5' lines is not great. Stay home! Horrid. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
