Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Tuesday 7 July 2020

After a crisp offshore dawnie, with solid 6ft surf lighting up the points Tuesday, the crazy burst of an Endless Winter with schizo elements returns with a staunch SW buster. Swell goes wild and woolly, and even bigger by evening. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Wednesday now a stiff beast easterly wind onshore klaps the coast with nasty messy seas to kill off a SOLID 8ft SSW swell with 10ft sets. Warm with showeres. The NE goes neargale as air from a High pressure off the coast sucks southward towards an upcoming low pressure system and associated cold front. The storm moves off before it arrives though and the onshore continues Thursday pumping NE - the beasterly lull as the next front moves up the coast. Surf messy 4-6ft mixed with messy windswell. Sunny and warm. Friday there is solid 4-6' surf, but again, the high sits and the onshores blow, moderate even fresh. Partly cloudy and warm. Then, a hectic SW gale into Saturday going nuclear. You are bliksemed with a vengeance as huge swell builds. By arvi, dik chunks like sheep herded along the horizon by a giant salt-encrusted sheep dog. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
