Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

Tuesday 19 February 2019

Beast wind onshore blows out Tuesday after an okay start. There's a bit of 2-4' mild south swell around open coast especially in the arvi when it pulses a little bit under the white wash. Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday a whole slew of mish mashy wind mush comes slentering from the deep, with big peaky 6'+ windswell and stiff NE winds that ease off, dying into a glassy patch, before the west switch comes thro mid to late arvi. Cleanup starts, but too little too late methinks. However, the further towards Kowie and PE you are, the better, with the west blowing for longer. Lots of mixed 3-6' surf from all directions. Partly cloudy and hot. Thursday solid 4-5' x 15 sec pulsing swell thro, with a trickle of easterly cyclone swell overlaid on top. Winds, however, are moderate S early, and its a tad crosshore. Light to moderate SE in arvi. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Friday swell holds, but alas, alack, woe is you, the poo is thro my bru. It's worse in the west, but enough wind to be kak. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Saturday swell holding 4-7' with sickly leftover onshores that ease to prepare for another nice little west switch. Lekker wuffs in arvi, expecially evening. Partly cloudy and cool with showers.
