The week starts off with a shift to light north easterly winds.
The swell still hangs around the 2 foot mark until Wednesday / Thursday when we maybe get a touch more swell rolling in. Thursday and Friday also look to have slightly more favourable winds so keep watching the Durban surf report for updates.

For the millionth day running it's......2 foot and glassy!
The forecast for the weekend in Durban is 2 foot and glassy. Low tide is around 9 in the morning.
If you looking for something a bit bigger both the North Coast and South Coast are looking solid.

Not a ton of swell around this week with waves probably hovering around the 2 foot range.
The winds are looking good though so if you into some small glassy fun, Durban is the place to be.
Wax up that board and keep an eye on the Durban surf forecast for the latest.
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.
