Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Wednesday 11 December 2019

We're locked into an onshore spat(e) with Wednesday moderate going fresh miff yeasterly onshore. A lot of east swell about - a paltry 8 second mish mash of salted beast swell 2-4ft. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday same old, only wors(e) as in overbraaied stuk droog. Partly cloudy with showers. Warm. Friday ooh Friday 13 Freddie! Schwing! Uh. Gurgle. Sigh. kaDoof! A storm called Fred has slowly approached in the deep. Swell to 4ft should begin to push late morning, with 3ft SW sets to 14 seconds. However, the onshore still in place. Not as strong, so dawnie might be fun before it picks up. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday and now the effects of Fred arrive. Stiff W switch but the buster may not be pomping at first, and swell, she has arrived. Solid SW x 6ft+ x 15 second sets hit open coast. Could fire at pointy spots in morning. The breeze gradually builds to 20 kts during day. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday ooh! The biggest element of the swell, from more recent moments in Fred's life, smacks open coast up to 8ft but the buster is strong, tho more WSW at first. Points cook. Open spots blown out. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers.
