Surf Report Durban, South Africa

Posted: Thursday, 16

What's happening this weekend for the Durban surf forecast?

Saturday is looking pretty hot and blown out.
Sunday is looking better but you will have to get in there early. Waves should be 3-4 foot.

Monday is the stay away, EFF day but...there should be cranking waves in town...don't tell your boss...or tell him you couldn't get to work because of the protests.

Tuesday the swell has dropped but looks like glassy waves. Wednesday get in early before the east goes nuts!

Fun times ahead.

The Durban surf forecast for this weekend is not looking as good as Thursday and Friday unfortunately.

Saturday the east will make a mess of things. Sunday is looking better with some offshore winds but they are pretty strong but maybe a bit calmer in the afternoon?

Into next week and Monday and Wednesday mornings are looking pretty promising with some light winds but waves only around the 2 foot range.

For this weekend's Durban surf forecast we are looking at some pretty average surf.

Summer is back and with it the easterly winds.

There might be something early, early if you are desperate for a surf.

Into next and we have swell Monday to Wednesday but winds are looking mostly meh, but keep an eye the surf report because they could be some pockets of magic!

Surf Report Durban, South Africa

The city of Durban on the east coast of South Africa is home to some epic, consistent beach breaks.

The region extends from the harbour mouth to Umhlanga Rocks in the North. The Durban surf report is updated hourly. The surf is consistent year round with the best swells being in the winter months between April and July. In the summer months the water is warm and only boardshorts are required. In winter either a spring suit or 2-3mm wetsuits will be fine. The water quality is relatively good for an African city but in the rainy season from October to February, the Umgeni river will burst it's banks and the water will become brown.

All the breaks in Durban break onto sand with some interesting variations in wave size and shape due to the harbour mouth and the piers. The waves are generally around 2-3 foot but with a good swell it can go beyond 6 foot and get super hollow.
