Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Monday 25 July 2016

Tuesday BIG SE swell comes with rumping SE ripper. Chilly weird with ubiquitous black SE constant rain and shivery weather. Muizies cowers at the Corner, whimpering into her oats and crochet. Flooding. Stormy. Broken trees. Wednesday hey hey hey, crisp clean False Bay cooks 4-5' or more from east swell x soft 10 sec period. Other side small to flat tho clean in light N or variable winds. Swell dies fast. Thursday  lank solid 4'+ still around in False Bay with more S = more wrappage, less direct, longer lulls, ok fresh W to SW side to offshore winds. Other side flat (but keep eyes peeled for epic swell arriving around Aug 1). Friday steady dribble of ambient 3-4' south swell at weak periods and a building SE wind, going miff onshore at Muizies. Saturday in fresh SE, mangled Muizies miffery. Lots of SE windswell about.
