Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

North of Zinkwazi

Wednesday 1 July 2015

Dawnie on Wednesday could yield small clean 2-3' conditions but a moderate NE brings sickly mank. In far north, this dies into glassy evening. Thursday in south, calm day with puff of NE onshore later and possibly 3-4' open coast early in morn, but in north, a clean dawnie goes moderate S then SE. Friday nice lined up 3-4' open coast surf in lekker clean start, tho towards Dirtbin it blows out with some yeast onshore. Saturday proper groundswell 3-5' broken by lots of N winds, while in south, this tends NE onshore, blown out and manky. Sunday down south, along open coast, fun 4' lines in clean conditions but in north by RBay strong N winds kill it.
