Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Thursday 14 March 2019

There was really kiff surf on the points this morning Thursday in light W going glassy and punchy 4-5' sets wildside and exposed points. The wind stayed away for most of the morning. A moderate NE bump is appearing this arvi. Cloudy and warm with showers. Friday swell drops off. Winds are light, fun early 2-3' maybe. Then light to moderate NE onshores puff. Partly cloudy with showers. Saturday maybe 2-3' surf in continued onshores worse today with a dawnie offshore a bit shorter than normal. Goes stiffly blown out beasterly later. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday lots of morning sickness about with the onshores lurking from early, semi-staved off by the landbreeze that tries then fails. A 4' SW groundswell may show, but this is smacked down by the onshores. Partly cloudy and warm. The wind eases into evening, and Monday kiff SW offshore and fun if small 2-3' waves. Super calm glassy variable day forecast. Partly cloudy and warm.
