Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Weekend 21 October 2017

Mild bumpy west onshores blow Friday to mess with a 4-6' west swell. Would be super fun with no wind. Muizenberg 2-3' and lank fun with mild pushing sideoffshore after kiff start. Saturday oooh. Cooking both sides! West is 4-6' and glassy early, tho bumpy mild SW onshore later. Muizies 2-3' and epic in morning for the cafe latte and manure set. Sunday much moore munch! A PROPER 6'+ groundswell from kiff west direction pulses all day, gaining big wave grunt by evening as peroid rises sharply to a grunting 18 seconds. Winds, sadly, look moderate S going fresh. Muizies has a sad crying face as clean 2-4' groundswell sets wrapping in are mucked about by the onshore. Monday looks kiff for Muizies tho. Going off 3-4' in clean lekker offshore, with hint of sideshore innit. Surf other side is 10-12ft+ on the slip side of the swell peak already and easing all day. Bit bumpy SW winds may not hinder the takeoff at some big wave bommies. Tuesday long tailed cranking 6-8' west swell in glassy start. Cooking both sides, tho one is waaaay smaller.
