Mariakerke Surf Guide

Mariakerke on the West Coast is a reasonably exposed beach/jetties break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around high tide when the tide is falling. It very rarely gets crowded here. Hazards include rips and obstacles.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
