Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Thursday 15 February 2018

Not much swell action Thursday with leftover NE to E windswell 2-3' and peaky with light NW landbreezes early puffing crisp SSW and a bit sidshore. Might have been a chance at dawn. Partly cloudy and warm Friday lekker conditions, with light west early going variable but there is a distinct lack of energy in the ocean. In other words. Flat. Maybe 2-3' bumps. Maybe. Cloudy, warm and rain showers. Saturday hope for a glassy landbreeze dawnie before a mild to miff E onshore puffs. Watch a new 2-3' swell show mid to late morning, followed by slowly building 6' SSW groundswell that should be pulsing in the arvi, but crumbled by onsores. Cloudy and cool, with rain showers. Sunday caned by honking onshore beasterly. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. There is lots of 3-5' SSW swell, but destroyed. Monday might start crisp offshore, but a SW buster due to hit any time early. Rain showers. Cloudy and cool, with rain. Mixed up east and SSW swell.
