Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

Thursday 15 February 2018

Thursday looks a bit weak, with some leftover E windswell 2 to maybe 3' in very clean NW landbreezes early puffing lightly and glassy at times before moderate SSW. This is a bit sideshore on open coast, but sheltered in town. Small but a few bumps to bash bru ... sorry cuz. Partly cloudy and hot and humid. Friday epic conditions. Major lack of juice tho. Looks glassy going light to moderate easterly. Might have a fun few 2ft summer peaks. Partly cloudy, warm to hot. Saturday hope for a glassy landbreeze dawnie before a mild to miff E onshore puffs. Town stays small the whole day, but on open coast, watch a new 2-3' groundswell show open coast after lunch, building slowly, pushing to 4' down coast by evening. Crumbled by mildly onshore onsore. Cloudy and hot, rain showers. Sunday ripped by onshore beasterlies that render it obsolete. Town mushy building windswell. Open coast showing a new SSW groundswell and blasted apart. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Monday some heavy rain showers due. Glassy start. Clean. A peaky east swell around. Might be 3' in town and out of town. A SW buster hits in the morning.
