Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Far North (Zinkwazi and beyond)

Thursday 27 November 2014

Washy messy NE conditions Thursday with stiff NNE winds blowing hard. Washy east windswell builds. Friday still a bit sickly in far north, cleaner in south after it glassed off in the night. Soon, however, a SW busterly rips thro to reverse the mess the other way. Washy 2-4' blasted flat, new SW windswell builds open coast later. Saturday dry humping S buster kills the coast, but in south it moderates going light SE to E. In north, small surf and windy conditions. Sunday small to flat in light S to SE, puffing moderate. Monday fresh SE and washy 2-3' windswell from same direction.
