Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Wednesday 2 October 2019

Thursday sees south swell to 5 ft hitting open coast in leftover sickly yeast wind onshore, but looking better and better all day. By 5pm, for instance, wind shows 3kts SE. So it glasses off. Swell waning all day tho, so its 3ft just as conditions improve. Not the worst tho. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday a stiff buster smacks thro, bringing white capped seas and a building windswell, small to flat at first. By early arvi, a few sets (dogeared and fleabitten in the brisk breeze) make landfall open coast to 4-5', taking on a groundswell grunt by evening (some solid 6ft sets). Wind too strong. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday cha bra! Crunchy groundswell with 6 if not 8ft pounding glassy open shores, with no wind early, or a light landbreeze. Lekker! Light onshores later bode well for a day of spaghetti arms. Sunny and warm. Sunday yes! Kiff 4-6' surf open coast in clean moderate W offshore, crisp and brushed into offshore lekkerness. Offshore goes light SW later. Could just be epic! Partly cloudy and warm. Monday still the factory delivers swell packages to 5' if not 6' with slight boost to the juice. Winds stay moderate kiff offshore. Yebo Yes! Partly cloudy with strong showers.
