Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Thursday 16 November 2017

Lank SE swell pours through Thursday with 6' or bigger sets at 11 secs but with staunch southerly busters white kapping it sut. Bad weather and rainy squalls. A real wintery burst of cold blasted buster and Friday same swell, similar winds but not as strong and a bit more west in it but probably not enough. Saturday hey hey now it's starting to look nice. Swell has come in with proper groundswell grunt from pure SE direction. Lekker surf with clean glassy light W offshores puffing light N then NW or variable. Inside points are turning on, and berries bru! Sunday clean kiff 2-4' South swell in kiff clean light SW to W going glassy puffing miffed NE onshore. Monday oooh. Now it's solid grunting new SW groundswell 4-6' at many spots (but solid 8ft+ open coast) but moered by screaming heebie beasterly onshore. Wind backs down in arvi going offshore again. Evening?
