What's in store for Durban this weekend?Small glassy surf for the most part with maybe some bumps on the wave on Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning is probably the pick of it with offshore winds until about 11 with the low being around 9 in the morning.For updated Durban surf reports keep an eye on the forecasts.
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.
