Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Plett to Port Alfred

Thursday 11 October 2018

Crisp SW offshore early Thursday with fun 3-4' groundswell @ 15 secs for punchy fun before the wind goes like the clappers, gusting a busterly 23kts. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Friday now the surf on open coast is a solid 6-8' but with S blowing fresh to strong. Sideshore and not ideal for almost all spots. Takes a SE onshore bent from about 2pm. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Saturday noooit! The onshore winds up into a snotkapped salticracked beasterly blow in humid partly cloudy warm weather, and the leftover 4-6' S swell surf slammed into oblivion. A solid 4'+ windswell overlays the groundswell with a salt-blasted 4-8ft windsea mess by evening. The beasterly builds into a straight yeast gale by early Sunday and its horrible. It's horrible I tell you. Messed up 2-10ft E windswell blasted by the beasterly gale. It's horrible. Did I say that already? Partly cloudy with showers. Monday dawns a different day as crisp moderate to fresh WSW offshores work some magic into a still twisted 3-6ft easterly sea. Partly cloudy and warm. Partly cloudy and warm.
