Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Weekend 21 October 2017

Epic waves lie ahead bru, bree, brah, bro! Friday fires 4-5' rising to 6' in crisp moderate W offshore. Saturday cooking 6' surf in crisp moderate W offshores easing to glassy. An epic day. Mild NE onshore puffs late in day. Alas, the run is done by Sunday drats, strong NE onshore ruins what would be epic 6' if not 8' sets. It's stiff and nasty later. Monday horrible! So sad, because in the west PE side it could just be absolutely epic at points that handle BIG powerful long distance groundswell, with crisp W offshores. Solid 10ft+ sets open coast, but alas, onshores klap it sut bree. However, in arvi a west switch is thro and evening sesh might be on cards. Tuesday absolutely going off 6-8' in epic offshore crisp and clean, going glassy and just epic. Two sunnies and a floppy hat bru.
