Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Agulhas

Wednesday 22 October 2014

Wednesday 3-4' in light NE, with mildly moderate SW bump in arvi. Muizies flat to 1-2' Whatever surf there is, dwindles all day. Thursday 3' possible reaching 4' maybe in arvi. Wind light S, fresh SSE later. Muizies flat, going on 2' later. Friday 4'+ general surf arrives but caned by rumping SSE summer trades. Muizies urg. Saturday a 3-4' swell tries to make headway into the teeth of a humping neargale SSE. Muizies sicker than a queasy yak. Cork contours feasible as big windswell fills in. Sunday still pumping. Windswell subsides a bit. Other site frigid, flat and flipped. Muizies gluten-free rabid -equine hoof-mulch.

Hi guys, Just want to remind all of you how lucky you are to be able to own a surf board and live on the coast. *sloth out*

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.

Mr Michel - you didn't look hard enough. From experience I know that around false bay, new swells take awhile to arrive. First thing on Friday morning there wee 1ft little windy buggers. Around 3 in the arvo, we got some fairly nice ,shark filled, high tide 2-3ft. However at around 5 was when it really turned on. The wind turned glassy, the tide was going out, and the swell had totally filled in and was pulsing 3-5ft. Even the sunset was perfect. And the best part was a usually uber crowded muizies was almost completely empty - I'm not sure whether it was the shark alarms that went off earlier, or if people gave up on the waves when they saw them in high tide. All I know is I scored PERFECT Muizenberg 4ft glassy with only a couple guys out, at around 5:30 to sundown ( both on Friday and Saturday) . So you just gotta know where to look.

Howzit Don, i am writing to you to let you know that what you're doing has inspired me! you are my idol and i long to be like you. i recently started kayaking and bought a rad beast of a kayak I call the white mamba (cos I'm white). I'm pumping iron 5 days of the week and then slaying on Zandvlei and the berg on the weekend. Did i mention my for-arms are huge, i recently choked a girl grom who tuned my white mamba so i can act as back up for you. I'm keen to hook up with you (not literally) and slay some johnnies that have ruined many of my kayak sessions. contact me on FaceBook at Jacques big bruv le coque or on twitter, @jaqueslebigcoque. I'm really looking forward to slaying some johnnies on the water and then slaying the betties at tinners.

keep clean Don, or how i will call you, DonJon

This is the most frustrating swell I have ever tracked. It just doesn't arrive.

Guys clearly Don "the Pro Kayaker" is a troll and you are constantly feeding him by taking his bait. Surely he has nothing better to do than troll this forum instead of going out and actually catching some waves.

Dear Don, you have clearly crossed the line when you decided to shoot that beautiful creature that God made. I had better not see you in the water anytime soon because I am fuming and wont hesitate to pop your oversized nut sack with your own paddle. Keep your eyes peeled, Im the one on the longboard!!!

Howzit Don, I was at Cape Point the other day and was fortunate enough to see you (well not so fortunate...) standing on the beach with your 'mustang' which just by the way looks like a homemade piece of kak, which my little daughter could make-O and I don't know wether or not you are colour blind but it is definitely pink! For anyone who is interested, I saw Don not fishing deep out at sea for sharks, but rather in a small rockpool with a little net. He then caught a tiny fish and threw his hands up in joy and then threw the fish on the rock? And then pulled his shirt off to reveal his less than impress body, which looks like a 10 year old boys!

Peace out Cape Point local

Howzit china's! Just dropping in to say that the response from my other comment is getting better just like the definition of my biceps ;) No one has been getting in my way for a few days. But now i have one other problem which is these herds of great whites that are getting in my way of shredding waves on the black mustang (my kayak) and is scaring the crowds away that come to watch me shred at my home break muizies. So I've decided to take the matter into my own massive hands and start to butcher these siff creatures. Shot one the other day of Cape point while I was surfing these 10ft waves. So just wanting to let Cape town know what I've been doing for the city and would like some appreciation. Not one to boast but it takes some big balls (which I have literally ) to slaughter these great whites to an absolute minim (almost to extinction).

Peace out
