Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Ballito Bay to north of Zwinkazi

Tuesday 26 June 2018

It was a lekker dawn patrol with 4-5' waves in the south Tuesday in typically kiff winter landbreezes, but a NE beast wind puffs. Partly cloudy with showers. Wednesday similar conditions up north. Clean dawnie, fun waves 3-5' open coast before the NE beasterly puffs. Sunny and warm. Thursday a long range S swell makes landfall today, with 6ft sets possible open coast into the arvi. However, a southerly buster may put paid to that. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Friday cranking surf. Could be 4-5' and fun on open coast in nice dawnie conditions. Mild onshores blow today tho. Partly cloudy with showers. Saturday again, nice dawnie, light onshores and potentially fun but smaller 2-3' surf. Sunny and warm.
