Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Weekend 23 April 2016

Solid 10-12' storm surf still around Friday in messy stormy fresh SW onshores. The wind swings southerly and blows fresh to strong. Muizies biggish 3-4' but mushy and broken up. Saturday leftover 8ft bombs (easing to 4-6') in fresh SE offshores easing to moderate and crisp for big gaping toobs. Muizies onshore and messy. Sunday 3-4' surf in moderate to fresh nowhere southerly. It has been better. Muizies a bit iffyish but not too bad particularly in arvi when breeze goes SW. Monday 2-4' surf around in moderate S again. A bit SSW later. Same all round. Muizies 2' iffy side S onshore. Tuesday 3-4' surf in fresh SSE going strong and honking winds today. Muizies dissolves in miff onshore.
