Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Tuesday 17 April 2018

In the west, Tuesday fires 4-8' open coast, BUT, the further east you go, into the zone east of PE and Kowie, a honking NE beast wind onshore is going to be ruining what would be an epically kiff thing. A SOLID 6-8' SW groundswell with 15 second intervals becomes more S and better in direction, but to no avail in the ruinous on-sore. Partly cloudy and warm to hot with showers. Wednesday crisp light to moderate NNW to NW offshore will most likely puff N or even NE onshore, but early could yield a few fun ones, with the swell looking 4-6' from kiff SSW direction, easing a little later. Partly cloudy and warm to hot with showers. A buster arrives overnight and Thursday is blasted by stiff SW winds. A lot of busterly windswell to groundswell 4-7' SW is hitting open coast. Protected spots only. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Wind eases into the night. Friday absolutely freakin' goes off. Solid 6-8' surf and beaut offshore devils wind light and clean very slowly puffing light SW before it backs around to the NE and goes a bit choppy. Surf off its tits at dawn. Partly cloudy and cool. Saturday should be fun to ok dawnie in 4-5' or 3-4' surf at least. However, moderate to miff NE onshore due. Partly cloudy and warm.
