Namaqualand and N Cape

 

Weekend 25 July 2020

Glassy 2-4' surf Friday in hot, dry, sunny weather. Winds glassy light N to NE, with a berg wind element. Saturday similar weather, hot and sunny, with a light variable SE whiff of a breeze in glassy morning conditions and straight west clean 4' lines along open shores. A moderate S wind puffs into the arvi. Sunny and hot. Sunday 3-4' lines maybe a few bigger ones on open coast, with moderate offshore SE winds that soon freshen to strong SSE and blasting 25kts by arvi. Partly cloudy and warm. Much cooler today. Monday swell has jacked to a solid six foot in moderate to fresh SSE to SE breezes. Sunny and hot. Tuesday 4-5' in morning, with sets to 6-7ft into the arvi, especially towards the evening. A moderate SSE wind blows in the morning, puffing to fresh S to SSE into the arvi. Partly cloudy and cool becoming warm.
