Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Thursday 4 October 2018

Lekker surf Thursday with kiff dawnie offshore and crisp lined up 4'+ SSW groundswell running on open coast? Firing. The swell goes an optimum SSW direction and picks up another 20% in energy. Conditions stay kiff for morning and a light NE onshore puffs. Partly Cloudy. Friday a moderate NE is in place from a High pressure to the east, and it's a bit miff despite solid 6-8'+ SSW groundswell along open coast. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday onshore keeps on though not pumping per se. Still miff enuff to damage a 4-5' SSW swell. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Sunday the wind smasheds thro at a miffish intense 23kts. White smeared miffery. Lots of soft 1-4' E windswell peaks. Yech. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday honking beast winds lock in with serious overbite. yech. What a nasty run. Not lekker. Swell gone too, barring washy 2-4' east peaks. Sunny and warm to hot.
