Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

Thursday 14 June 2018

Moderate NNE winds mess Thursday up a bit, but besides, there is no surf to speak off. Flat. Sunny and warm. Friday clean dawnie. No wind. Surf flat. A fresh semi-buster puffs from south later in day. No action yet. However, a bit of 4' swell will be sneaking through in the evening, a bit of a harbinger. Sunny and warm. Saturday boom! The buster has hit, and a whole lot of swell comes with it. Too much of everything. Solid 8-10ft storm swell and ripping white kapped coast. Most of the swell shunted past out to sea. Sunny and warm. Sunday could just be firing at dawn in light landbreezes and a cooking 6ft SW swell. However, a big beasterly east onshore due as air from the coastal high pressure sucks south towards the next chunk of low pressure heading this way. Increasingly south swell and consistent 4-5' sets go to waste. Partly cloudy and cool. Monday could be fun at dawn, with straight S 4' lines on points before the new buster bangs through in morning from S, easing into arvi and evening. Partly cloudy. Ooooh. Check Tuesday! Cooking cuz.
