Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Wednesday 20 May 2020

After epic waves, it's gone to pot. What a relief. The swell has died Wednesday and moderate miff onshores puff. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday a front scrapes by with freshening westerlies, and building swell. A crisp NW landbreezey at dawn, with signs of 4-5' long period long lulled sets. Early is better. By lunch, the wind fresh going strong. The swell brunt hits in the arvi, solid 5'+ on the points, bigger open coast. White capped and messy. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday goes off! It's glassy and 6-7ft open coast, 4-5' on points - a bit inconsistent due to West swell direction - in light SW to NW. Kiff when they come! Glassy all day. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday more swell, better direction SW 5-7ft open coast, 4-6 on points light NW going glassy variable. KIIIIIFFFF! Sunny and warm. Sunday yet more frontal swell with new jacking sets, 4-5'+ early, reaching 6-7' by evening. Clean crisp start in moderate direct W offshore, puffing fresh to strong. Partly cloudy and warm.
