Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Amanzimtoti to Ballito Bay

Weekend 23 February 2019

Ay mah cuzzie! It's cooking in town Friday with a kiff 4-5ft cyclonic SE swell in loverly glassy landbreezes. The offshore continues and a light variable or light onshore may puff later. Make hay! Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Saturday the NE onshore puffs, but could be kiff quick dawn patrol. Chance of early skunkage with early onshore. Expect cross-mixture of SW and E swell down the coast, with only the east swell in town. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday ay, nice conditions again. Smooth clean 2-4' SSW swell down coast in glassy landbreezes with mild sideshore southerly puffage in arvi. In town, the east swell has waned, but keeps on giving 2-4'. Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Monday oh my hat. It's a great day down the coast: 3-4' in kiff light W offshores. There is a bit of SW in the swell, and a bit of SE in the swell from two trains so town could also be fun 3-4'. Light east onshore in arvi. Tuesday the epic run is over, barring feasibly fun 2-3' dawnie before the onshore gets up if not up already. Partly cloudy and hot.
