Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Thursday 15 February 2018

Small to flat seas Thursday with fresh SSE winds that tend southerly. Not a lot we got. Muizies might be 2-3ft but ragged in onshores. Hot and sunny. Friday the swell jacks all day. So does the wind, puffing 5-10kts S early, fresh S by lunch, and pomping into the arvi. Surf starts 3' and slow, and by lunch, it's 3-4' and building nicely, reaching solid 4-5' sets by evening. Warm and partly cloudy. Muizies light onshore and 2' early, worsening as onshore freshens. Saturday fresh SE blows from early, tho moderating all day to mild southerly. Swell has gone SSW and 4-5' ambient ocean translates to sporadic 4' sets on west facing breaks, more on south facing breaks. Muizies has loads of swell, possibly 2-3' if not 4' but wobbly in onshores, though becoming milder as day wears on. Sunny and hot. Sunday 3-4' in light going moderate NW, fresh at times, as weak front scrapes. Cloudy and cooler, maybe the odd rain spit? Muizies offshore and fun! But small. Maybe 2'. Monday new groundswell 3-4' going on 4-6' on open beaches. Winds moderate SSE going fresh to strong, bordering on interseasonal southerly. Muizies dissolves in the onshore.
