Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Tuesday 17 April 2018

What an epic pulse yesterday! Tuesday and its smaller now, but carried over kiffly on reefs early 4' if not 5' in clean light NW, slowly puffing moderate W. Muizies super fun 2' and offshore. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Wednesday hey hey hey. More swell pushes for yet another autumnal pulse. Expect 3-4' sets early, and these are 4-5' solid by evening. However, a front lurks, and winds puff fresh to strong NW, so ragged on west side, but a rigorous offshore for Muizies, which should be 2' and sort of clean. There is also some rain today, with good showers in arvi and evening. Wind backs around to fresh SW as the low moves to the east. Cloudy with showers. Thursday solid 4-5' in moderate SW bump west side, with Muizies ok sort of offshore sideshorish breezes and 2' maybe 3. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Friday swell bigger, with 6ft sets likely in moderate becoming fresh S winds. Not a great wind direction for both sides of the peninsula. Swell wanes to 4-5' during day. Sunny and warm after cool start. Saturday lekker conditions. Calm and clean 4' if not 5' sets in kiff warm light clean NE bergie winds. Puffs moderate to fresh NW later. Muizies fun 2'. Sunny and warm.
