Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Wednesday 23 May 2018

Winds look a bit skunky Wednesday blowing from the N and quite strong, tho easing a bit during day, then NNE onshore crosshore. The swell is solid 6ft+ with proper period grunt. Much smaller than yesterday. Pity about the wind, tho might be blow in the western parts Slumtown side, where there might be good waves. Sunny and warm. Thursday fires! It's glassy to light W and solid 6' if not a bit bigger open coast. Epic. Light offshore, variable. Glassy. Wow. Partly cloudy with showers. Friday swell direction a lot more southerly, and new swell with new punch brings solid consistent 6'+ surf. HOWEVER, a new SW buster is smashing it into white capped miffery. Wind does abate in arvi, but swings SSW then S then SE as it moderates. Cloudy with rain showers. Saturday the swell SSW and consistent and a bit smaller 4-5' easing to 4'. BUT of course the dratted badly timed honking beast east onshore kaps it dead. Sunday sickly morning in moderate onshore that with 2-4' sloppy surf. The wind switches westerly and brushes it into shape. A lottery as to whether wind too strong, or not, in which case lekker conditions.
