Any chance of a J-Bay forecast Craig?

First time I've noticed you guys don't forecast South Africa...

Can't see anything of real substance based on latest forecasts with Friday 10th looking to be the pick of an average lot at present.

Maybe something around Mon/Tues 13th/14th, but current forecasts have this swell a little too west of south for my liking.

1040 High .........
It won't be long after this upcoming ECL gives way that we'll probably see highs of that strength dominate our continent .

What's mick-free got to say, he's the resident j/bay expert, white only though he don't see coloured.:-))))

I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.

The swell direction off the top of the high won't be good for J Bay and winds don't look great at the peak of this E'ly swell either.

As long as our 1040 highs aren't parked too high in latitude then I'll be happy for some nice tradewind swell from the tops of these puppies!!!

looking at SST's both locally , Pacific and Indian . I'm tipping the highs will start froming soon centred near the Vic/ SA / NSW border . ( ie i wouldn't hold your breath ) , not until you see some bounce back .

Google Wavescape, it's a Sth African forecast site. Pretty basic but they will let you know if the forecast is Lekker Bru! I found it to be pretty accurate.
