Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Thursday 31 January 2019

Lots of SE onshore blows down Slumtown to Kowie side Friday but on the Wild Coast you're looking at light S to start puffing moderate SE onshore, then glassing off into the evening. Kind of nowhere conditions really, but not awful. A small 2-4' south swell around, coupled with a little bit of East windswell. Watch some interesting cyclone activity happening mid February! Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Heavy rains inland could make for brown rivers today and through the weekend. Saturday clean dawnie with small 2-3' swell mixed up directions, with a stiff NE beast onshore wind developing, pumping by arvi. Partly cloudy and warm to hot with light showers. Sunday looks like the NE onshore has blown right thro the night, and blasts Sunday into next week. Watch for late in the day, possibly evening, when the humidity becomes a glassy bubble that bursts with a stiff west wind switch attack that snaps like a burst of elastic blast. Pumps SW gale overnight, screaming thro Monday with wild white kapped mushy seas slammed up the coast in the opposite direction. White surfsmash smeared to shore. Just add salt water. Partly cloudy with showers. Tuesday lank 3-5' weak southerly windswell open coast and fresh to strong leftover W busterly blows. A bit too much wind still. Partly cloudy and warm to hot.
