Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Thursday 15 February 2018

Some east windswell about Thursday 2-4' with crisp moderate to fresh W offshores. Cloudy and warm. Friday the west blows lekker mild and smooth, lined up, but very small 2-3' surf. Cool and cloudy, with rain showers. Winds stay nice and west, barring soft shift to S into the evening. Saturday blerry bat hell and baloney but the beast wind wakes up early and moers you with miff onshores. So irritating, because a kiff cracking 6-8' SSW groundswell at punchy 14 seconds is grinding on open coast. Small chance of a clean dawnie tho, but unlikely. Keep an eye on it. Goes blown out and miff. Cloudy and cool. Sunday still solid 6 foot sets, but the dratted beasterly continues to cane you. Hot, muggy weather. Monday mmm. The winds not W offshore enough, but blowing fresh SSW so a sideshore bent to it, though 3-5' waves open coast. Hope for better winds. Rain showers. Cloudy and cool.
