Kei Mouth to Port Edward

 

Wednesday 23 October 2019

A sickly NE onshore morning gives way to a staunch west buster that snaps across the coast like an elastic Wednesday tearing apart a weak 2-4' SSW swell bordering on windswell. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday clean calm glassy dawn patrol, with 3' windswellish surf could mean a bit of fun at open coast and points, with a strong NE beast wind onshore due to build in morning, blown out by noon. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday again, morning sickness prevails on account of leftover onshore seas and wobbly weak windswell 1-3' or so. Saltipoop. The wind looks variable W to SW and calm today, with which might clean the ocean up a bit. Very little swell tho. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday swell has arrived. Clean fun 4' lines in lekker early offshores, puffing moderate mushy SE onshore. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday blasted by stiff beasterly onshores, smashing a general 2-4' open ocean swell. These abate later to prepare for a big West buster tomorrow. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
