Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Monday 27 March 2017

Small 3' surf along open coast Tuesday in moderate SSW winds. Nothing special. Quite crap perhaps. Sideshore and weak. Wednesday small 2' SE windswell around in clean early seas, a light becoming moderate E onshore later. Thursday shame. A nice new punchy swell - with sets to 4-5' may be running along the open coast - but alas, a stiff beastly yeasterly onshore pumps, and from early. If you do have a dawnie window, grab it. Friday honking miff yeast winds continue. The wind abates late arvi, and into the evening its dying down rapidly, to be replaced by a stiff SW buster that has been working its way up the coast. Saturday crisp offshore and / or honking SW buster blows in the morning, arriving between dawn and 10am. Too much wind.
