Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Kei Mouth to Port Edward

Thursday 11 October 2018

A wild and crazy volatile oscillation of windy mayhem in store, with Thursday sick with a morning leftover NE windswell mess, puffing glassy to light W to lunch with a stiff SW blowing in arvi, peaking 20kts in the evening. A fun 3-4' groundswell @ 15 secs builds into the arvi, but camouflaged by a overlaid 2-4' windchop. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Friday the wind continues as a blasted 20kts+ southerly buster. Surf on open coast is wild and messy with mixed up 2-5' SSW windswell. Cloudy with heavy showers. Saturday a rumping S groundswell to a solid 6-8' chunders open coast, but the moderate south sideshore early gives way to a fresh SE onshore. Further west into the Cape it's a beasterly gale overnight, and it arrives Kei side late Saturday and into Sunday, which is awash with humping NE beast wind onshores. A mixed up 3-6ft S and SE and NE windswell and groundswell makes it hard to tell the wood for the trees. Partly cloudy with showers. Monday the NE effect dies off as a crisp W blows in the west, or a light variable east puffs in the east. A solid 4' SE swell is solid 6-7' by evening. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
