Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Agulhas

 On leave until 14 Sept

Friday 28 August 2015

Fresh NW is ragged in the west Friday as a punchy 6' swell grows slowly all day, while Muizies look tiny 1' pushing 3' by 6pm in crisp offshores. Saturday surf cranks 6'+ open coast in light to moderate S to SSE. Muizies 2-3' looks dodge in light onshore early going wobbly wonked. Sunday solid 8' bombs blast their foaming shrapnel in honking howling SSE winds. Muizies awash with onshore miffery. Monday surf has eased a lot to maybe 2-4' in strong pumping pure SE but Muizies is blown away despite 3-5' SE windswell pouring into False Bay. Tuesday same.

Okes on this site are kak dom!
First of all why does every other *&^#*+*! fill in the "title" box with "Mr"? Are you okes *&^#*+*!in' serious?
Secondly why do you okes all congregate here like derelicts in the muizenberg parking lot?
Haven't you guys heard of windguru?

#381 Cape Peninsula swell this past weekendgummybear 2015-08-24 12:29
Yo Spike,

Are the wave bouys tripping out, or was there a beast of a swell this weekend that all the forecasts missed?

3,5-4m+ 14sec on Friday and a 10-12ft 17sec swell Saturday?

so now the tide turns and the sentiment of good and like minded people flows stronger.

the proprietors are not aided by the self appointed army of trolls as the truth is strong.

your viewership is speaking - on who's opinion will you respond spike?

the populist orcs - just trying to score points with the big boss. or the sincere messenger, whos advise an input will begin to diminish if our feedback continues to fall on deaf ears.

Spike. This is your father. We know you've been on the drugs again, probably locked up in some crackhouse.

Let us know what's happening, please, urgently.
You have commitments to uphold, responsibilities . You're a grown man now

So over the okes from the states rocking up thinking they deserve our pits and our betties.

I ride for WP seniors( im well respected), but I live in bellville. Does the fact that Im a province rider override the fact that I rock up at derde steen with a CY plate?

People who run one-man businesses seldom get holidays. I hope Spike gets his daily barrels. Meantime any surfer can google StormSurf and read swell heights and periods.

Who is this tool? Some internet troll looking for attention, prob never been in the water. Stick to Warcraft your imagination can run wild there.

Quoting Don:
Howzit you tall weak gremlin *&^#*+*!rs. Just dropping in to say that I'm back and I am sorry for not dropping a comment for so long but i was attacked by a killer whale while charging some outside reef bombs at glen on my black mustang (kayak). I lost my massive arm but fortunately I grew it back and I have made a full recovery. I Will be rejoining the WKL (World kayaking league) and reckon i have more chance of winning it with no arms then Jordy choker Smith has of winning the WSL. Maybe Jordy choker Smith would actually place in the top 10 if he stopped injuring his big toe before Pipe Masters or growing a vagina whenever the waves get above 6ft.
Peace out..
