Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Plettenberg Bay to Port Alfred

Weekend 23 February 2019

Rats. It would fire Friday 6'+ but the big fat but is a blasted beast wind that kaps you onshore all day. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday kiff dawnie, if a bit sickly from the beasterly, with light SE onshores forecast so surf early to enjoy glassy or light landbreezy seas that are creased by 4-5' lines. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday now it's firing 4-5' or more. Defs sunnies smiley face! Size not in the adrenaline mode, but wuffs is wuffs, west is blowing, seas are settled, and a 15 sec gruntswell punches above its weight. Play truant today for sure. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday epic conditions early. Light variable winds. Swell down to 2-4' or so, but super fun along exposed coast. Moderate NE onshore puffs in arvi. Sunny and warm. Tuesday a bit of volatility in a fractiously oscillating S to SW to SSW breeze today that threatens sideshore winds on 2-4' surf that reaches 4-5' by evening. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
