The Durban surf forecast for this long weekend is looking small and glassy.
It should be surfable all of Saturday and until around lunch time Sunday before the East wind picks up.
Tides are on neaps so there isn't much going on tide wise, pretty full to be honest.

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.
