Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Monday 16 January 2017

Stiff southerlies blow east of Port Alfred Monday easing around to a mildly messy SE onshore. Three foot surf early goes 4' in arvi. Tuesday dawnie could be fun 4' before it goes light then moderate onshore NE. The hump of Wednesday set to get ripped off by an easterly near-gale. It pumps! However, a west buster due overnight, probably in the early hours of Thursday pumping and a bit too windy, altho swell starts to arrive in arvi, going 4' and potentially 5' meaning sheltered breaks may have a few. Friday lekker surf 4-5' x punchy 15 second period and crisp if slightly stiff west offshores could open up lank options.
