Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Monday 4 December 2017

Make hay while you can. There is a 4-5' open ocean west swell running Monday with a fresh SSE wind puffing strong in arvi. Muizies of course is kakka all day. Miff early. Miffer later. Tuesday the pumping SE creates a windswell that supercedes the waning groundswell. Expect a riproaring SE gusting to a neargale by afternoon, and shredding the sea, flattening it and knocking it back towards Brazil. Muizies weak at the knees. Wednesday same as it never was. Fresh to strong consistent clean SE and now lots of windswell in False Bay but very little other side, apart from popsicle headaches. Looks like a contour day. Thursday the SE begins to ease, going nice and clean. By now, of course, the water temps would shrink a pair of balls made of brass. Some 3' windswell in False Bay eases. Looks still dirty onshore there though. Friday flat both sides, maybe 1-2' in cleanish mild S winds, light early moderate to fresh later.
