Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

Tuesday 26 June 2018

It was a lekker dawn patrol with 4-6' waves down the coast early Tuesday in typically kiff winter landbreezes, but a NE beast wind is beginning to blow it out at lunch time. Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday smacked by moderately miff NNE beasterlies. A brief dawnie might yield 2' peaks in town and 3' bumps out of town before they are messed up, but the sea mangled from yesterday anyway. Sunny and warm. Thursday wow. An epic 20 second swell arrives today, with 6ft sets due open coast on the other side, but, a southerly buster will put paid to that. In town, relatively clean with 2' surf potentially becoming 3' in arvi as swell fills in. Partly cloudy and cool. Friday a 3' swell Bluff open side might have a dawnie moment but also might be raked by morning sickness followed by moderate NE onshore. Hope for dawnie. Might not be worth even that. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday great conditions. Clean light winds til a NE onshore wins mid morning, with small but potentially fun 3' surf down coast, tho town looks tiny. Partly cloudy with showers. and warm.
