Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Agulhas

Tuesday 2 March 2015

Fires rage on Constantiaberg on a hot Tuesday with moderate NW breezes, glassy early, sea flat as. Mirror. Skiing? Muizies 1-2' but clean? Wednesday light NW puffs wobbly SW to S later as a smidgen of 2-3' groundswell shows open coast, maybe a few 4' bumps by evening. Muizies 1-2' at most but lekker clean. Nice conditions. Thursday the beasterly SE winds up again. Lets hope fires out by now. Lekker 4-5' swell. Morning best in straight SE. Honking hard SSE in arvi and swell on the rise. Muizies kakka. Friday solid 4-6' surf in stiff summer SE. Water back to freezing. Muizies morsdood. Saturday solid 8-10' bombswell arrives. Fresh S goes honking SSE. Lank swell in False Bay due to swell direction but smeared and washy.

Quoting bboi:
how many comments here are about how your report is never up to date. hardly ever published on time etc? answer: many.

how much is done about it on the site? answer: vokol

all that happens is the minions rant about people posting detraction's and its a free service etc. again - take down every banner and advert and i will not post feedback - yes its feedback - again.

as long as it is a commercial service the editors should listen to their viewers and not the ass kissers who are actually just trolls. and step up their game.

now go ahead goons. hit that dislike button. it only ensures this site grows more and more irrelevant.


there's a difference between constructive criticism and being a *&^#*+*!. now I'm not saying that you are being a *&^#*+*!. but how much of what you said was actually constructive? vokol

Dear tom trom tron 2

Winds are fickle creatures who don't listen to predictions. Why update the prediction after the fact? Deal with the IS-ness.

I love surfing, I love the ocean, I love stoke, I love the sunshine, I love stories of intense breaks and ride and riders, I love community and watching other surfers shred at my local home breaks, I love this page, I love days where I can hang out in boardies at my home breaks and chat to guys who love the ocean as much as I do, much love to the cape's south peninsula locals, only a surfer knows the feeling...

Click the link below Tom2. This was the swell on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Maybe you didn't heed the prediction about VERY LONG LULLS between sets? There were 17 minute lulls between TEN FOOT sets, and some bigger ones at the deepwater reefs, particularly late afternoon Saturday. Oh and Sunday was EPIC all day. Sublime surf! Sorry you missed out.

This most be the worst surf forecasting site I've seen, how often can you get it wrong. Even when there is clearly no swell on the day, the report is not updated. Today for instance, 21 seconds, 10-12ft, I don't think so...

I was waiting for the swell to arrive at Big Bay, which is an indicator for other spots on the West Coast. False Bay has a wide swell window, so South swells reach Muizenberg, but not the West coast spots.
