Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Tuesday 25 February 2020

A small 2-4' ambient swell kapped by a stiff beastly east onshore breeze Tuesday in sunny and warm conditions. The east is on the wane, however, and the west is through by Wednesday with teeny to 2 ft bumps open coast. A small new swell due, but long gaps and small sets before dark. Might be an evening sesh on cards 3-4'. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday now vee do ze talking Boris! A new swell has smashed thro. Solid 5-7ft S south is proper. Get it as early as tho, due to a moderate S that looks to go increasingly SE and horrible onshores by arvi. Hope for a touch of West in it early, otherwise you're skunked. Partly cloudy with showers. Warm. Friday drats. The SE digs in for a couple of days. Pumping mish mash mayhem as salty onshores kap the coast. Positively pumping miffery, particularly the arvi. Partly cloudy with showers. Warm. Saturday screaming heebies easterly geebies. Kaput. Awash. Kaaak. Three days of wasted swell. Sob! Sunny and warm.
