Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Thursday 30 July 2020

The waves be kraaking bru. Thursday fires 6-8ft open coast in strong W buster early that settles into a crisp straight West kiff offshore. Nice! Partly cloudy and warm. Friday epic crisp NW to W offshores (going SW in arvi) pure and straight for kiffness at right hand points. Solid 4-6' surf open coast suggests more than enough 3-4ft fun on such points. Sunny and warm. Saturday the swell jacks with renewed punch as 15 second energy underpins a new 4-5' swell with perhaps the odd 6ft wave cracking along open shores. Epic conditions. Crisp clean light W going glassy and beautiful. A light E puffs in arvi, going a little wobbly towards late arvi. Sunny and cool to warm as a High pressure rules. Sunday swell has eased to 3-4ft open coast with more crisp W offshore, altho a frisky berg wind NW puffs earlier. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday a stiff W buster is thro. White capped seas and building frontal swell reaches 6ft by evening. Partly cloudy and cool to warm.
