Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Friday 11 May 2018

Yecchy morning sickness blight upon Friday and the beast wind NE blows all day, moderate to fresh. This messes up a small 3' SSW swell. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday blasted sideways by a ripping SW buster to white-kapped 25kt gusts. Pumps all day. A pity, because growing arvi 4-5' sets are shredded by the salty sideways blast. Partly cloudy and warm with heavy showers. Sunday swell direction SSW and nice and straight with crisp offshore 4' lines likely on open pointbreaks. Wind slowly backs around to S then SE onshore in arvi. Partly cloudy and cool with light showers. Monday looks 3-4' open coast but mild SE onshores puff from early. Partly cloudy with showers. Tuesday epic long range 19 second swell, with 4-5' long spaced sets rising to solid 6-7', arrives today BUT, alas, the winds not great. Light to moderate S to SE winds due. If wind backs off or goes west, great surf. Hope for dawnie at least.
