Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Plett to Port Alfred

Monday 2 July 2018

A big buster blasts across the JBay bow Monday and the event is running with 4-5' sets. A little slow and windy. Lots of dik swell past but also on wildside coast up to 8-10ft as period picks up in arvi. Ccccoold. Tuesday surf 8ft+ solid along exposed coast, 4-7' at many spots, in stiff W offshore easing into a moderate to fresh WNW blow. Might be a little ruffled at Supers with the slight N in the wind. Should be firing there. Too solid for some breaks. Sunny and cool. Wednesday cooks solid 6-8' open coast stiff westerlies. Sunny. JBay 4-5' with the odd six footer. Thursday ooohlala! An EPIC, solid clean staunch long range long period bombswell from the SSW comes grinding into the bays. Expect kiff lulled 8ft+ bombs in fantastic light offshores. Nice lulls. Sunny and a bit warmer. BRUUUU! Friday rats. The tail end - sets to 6' easing - mished by a fast rising beasterly. Sob.
