Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

Wednesday 25 July 2018

The NE beasterly has been blowing, but morning offshores bring some peaks Wednesday with 2-3' surf maybe 4' on open coast and some spots out of town have lefts running down sandbars, though points not really doing it. Glassy day with soft onshore. Sunny and warm. Thursday again, glassy light landbreezes brush a 2-4' peaky east swell for some low tide fun. Soft onshore later. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday same swell, with soft weak east tinge to it and a bit more onshore today after the early landbreeze. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday a staunch buster has come thro, messing up the open coast, but clean and brushed back in town, tho it rapidly kills the east windswell, while pushing a sloppy south windswell to shore out of town. Wind takes a southerly direction. Looks partly cloudy and warm. Sunday surf 2-3ft with fun waves open coast in offshore dawnie, followed by freshening NE onshore.
