Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Weekend 23 February 2019

Ay mah cuzzie! Friday is epic my bru. Kiff 4'+ cyclonic SE swell winds down the points in kiff glassy landbreezes. Only puffs onshore after your arms are spaghetti, and might even be glassy light variable or very light onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday the NE onshore looms, but could be kiff quick dawn patrol before it goes miff broken seas, or it might be up early for some skunkage. Expect cross-hatched mixture of swell directions SW and several east directions. Another buster on way overnight. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday ay, nice conditions again. Smooth clean 2-4' SSW swell on points in glassy landbreezes with mild sideshore southerly puffage in arvi. Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Monday oh my hat. Another classic coast day. Points could be firing 3-4' or bigger in epic light W offshores. There is a bit of SW in the swell, and a bit of SE in the swell from two trains. Going off. Tuesday finally the epic run is over, barring feasibly fun 2-3' dawnie before the onshore gets up. Partly cloudy and hot.
