Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Tuesday 6 August 2019

Okay I'm back ... so chill! Tuesday cooks my bru. Solid 6-8' swell open coast, points firing 4-6'+ in crisp devilish NW to W, easing to light W. Epic! Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Wednesday a strong buster smacks thro. At first, the N stiff and devilish at dawn, followed by a rapid white kapping of the sea as the breeze builds to 20kts. Then it goes nuclear mid or late arvi, gusting 40-50kts+ galeforce. Batten your britches Bernie! Surf ruffled 4-6' going an explosive 10ft by evening. Too much bru. Too much. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Thursday blows normal staunch winter westerlies at a brisk 20 kts. Sheltered spots only. A dik 10ft west swell herded past out to sea. Intermittent 4-6' sets make landfall in wind-washed wild-side salt-slides. Partly cloudy and cool. Friday weak 3-5' SSW windswell? The NW blows a ruffled, devilish tuning you fork, fresh and festy offshore and likely not lekka. Sunny and warmish. Saturday fires early 6-7' open coast in light W offshore before a new spurt of winter bursterly busts by arvi. Dik storm swell and winds due next up. Sunny and cool.
