Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Weekend 27 May 2017

Waves ahead. Friday goes off in morning with solid 6'+ sets in crisp W offshore building into a bit of a buster. Proper winter. Saturday a ripsnorting white-capped SW buster smacks it, blasting a neargale in arvi. A 4-5' SSW swell overlaid by building chunks on horizon as windswell jacks. Sunday some serious grunt on the grind fills in with CRACKING 8ft+ SSW groundswell running by arvi in stiff but moderating W offshores. Arvi / evening looks epic. Monday going off in morning 4-5' tho main pulse is done. A moderate NE onshore puffs in arvi. Tuesday horrid beasterly onshore ruins a CRACKING swell, with sets to 8ft in morning, 10ft in arvi.
