Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Wednesday 11 September 2019

Looks sickly N devils wind Wednesday with lank sloshy east windswell hitting inside corners of the points. The wind dies off becoming light SW and there might be places that blow offshore earlier than forecast here. This could open up some spots, particularly slabs or beachbreaks. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday a washy 3' E windswell in light to moderate NE onshore rapidly dissolves into a nasty beasterly onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Then, overnight Friday a moer of a buster has smashed you sideways - a humping rumping SSW wind blows today. Some chunks on horizon. Not great on coast. Windwell 3-5' perhaps on open coast, but messy and windsmacked. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Saturday a clean crisp SW offshore (needs to have done a lot of work cleaning up the mess) and solid 6-8ft swell could mean cranking waves if not a bit wild and woolly at many spots. Partly cloudy and cool. Sunday mild mushy NE beast wind onshore dissolves into stiff beasterlies. Tiny surf mangled. Partly cloudy and warm.
