Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Tuesday 4 September 2018

A crazy time ahead, with Tuesday sunny and warm with a stiff NE onshore pre-frontal beast east wind messing with a soft 2-3' S swell open coast, a bit more energy in arvi. Wednesday the first front starts to come past and a fresh S buster blows after crisp offshore morning, then moderates quite quickly to moderate S. Swell small. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday moderate to fresh SE onshore winds and small swell to start, building 4-5' S swell in arvi and evening. The rain comes later, heavy at times. Wild deluges forecast in the southern half up to Lusikisiki into the evening. Flood warnings. Friday calm start, with moderate SSW winds and 3-4' south swell and heavy rain in morning. Saturday boom. Ripping SW gales by arvi, and huge windswell builds to 15ft open coast by evening. Wild times. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Wild Coast kussed.
