Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Thursday 15 February 2018

Clean 2-4' surf Thursday in light NW landbreezes puffing crisp SW offshore and then fresh to strong SW. Cloudy and cool. Friday lekker conditions, with light west early going variable but there is a distinct lack of energy in the ocean. In other words. Flat. Maybe some 2-3' bumps. The Wild Coast is seldom mill-pond flat. Cloudy, cool, rain showers. Saturday glassy start, with a whiff of new swell (2-4') potential before with mild SE going fresh and smacked beasterly east onshore. A pity, cos a cooking 6-8' SSW groundswell is pulsing in the arvi. Cloudy and cool, with rain showers. Sunday caned by honking onshore beasterly. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Monday a strong SW buster arrived in the night, and its pumping. Rain showers. Cloudy and cool. Mixed up east and SSW swell.
