Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Wednesday 23 September 2020

Small surf Wednesday despite chance of early landbreeze. Might be 2' max 3' open coast. Moderate NNE winds blow, going fresh during the arvi. Summery seas are here. Sunny and warm. Thursday classic S groundswell with punchy 16 second periods are perfectly lined up on the points. Woe is me. So is a stiff nasty NNE onshore. Drats! If you're lucky, you have a cooking session for an hour and a bit at dawn. Sunny and warm to hot. Friday early mangled morning sickness gives way to a buster that snaps up the coast with a wind reverse. Stiff SSW to S winds smash the leftover swell and manky east windswell. Partly cloudy and HOT and humid! Saturday continues to rumpy pump a staunch S buster to shred a washy mixture of miffness all round. Sets to 5ft hit open coast. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers. Sunday nice conditions. Crisp light landbreeze puffing variable glassy east and a fun leftover 3-5' SW swell around? Cloudy and cool and rainy.
