Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Monday 20 March 2017

Nice fun start to chilly Monday with low water temps after all the SE. Smooth 2-4' peaks open coast for fun, smaller in other places. Light to moderate SW puffs later. Muizies mildly onshore and lumpy 1-2'. Tuesday cleanish 2-3' in clean SSE early going moderate to fresh S. Muizies clean light onshore, worse later. Small tho. Maybe 1'? Wednesday slight increase to a now very west swell to 'solid' 3' while winds puff moderate SSE going fresh S. Thursday mild SW onshores puff, going strong S later. Surf 2-4' perhaps, or smaller. Muizies clean and almost offshore at first in 2' surf. Swell gets bigger later in day. Friday solid 6'+ swell honking SSE and of course Muizies is kaput.
