Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Weekend 1 October 2016

Lots of strong but very southerly swell runs Friday and it's smaller, and easing. Open coast up to an inconsistent 4-6' early, down to 4' by eve. Wind moderate S going SW to W. Muizies could be fun 3-4' easing to 3'. Saturday trickles 3-4' with still plenty south in it (not great for west side). Muizies 3' but now the southerly winds are starting to kick. Moderate in morning, fresh in arvi. Sunday lekker clean seas in fresh SE and straight offshore means good conditions. However, swell has been stripped of any juice. A 10 second 2-4' peak possible on beachies ... at most. Reefs weak 3'. Muizies back in therapy in the onshore. Monday epic day. Warm. Clean. No wind. No waves. Muizies clean 2' and a bit wobbly. Mild onshore later. Swell fades. Tuesday small bit of 2-3' swell feasible other side in mild to moderate SSE winds. Muizies 1' and tiny in mild onshore.
