Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa


Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Wednesday 22 May 2019

Ay bru, lekker 4' peaks early Wednesday in kiff calm seas, with a puff of light NW. The breeze swings moderate SW that funks it up a bit. False Bay fun 2' and clean going light sideshore. Partly cloudy and cool. Thursday a chunk of 6-8' groundswell arrives fanned by a light SSE wind early, puffing fresh later. Wind not epic but waves. Muizies mild onshore going a bit messy onshore. Sunny and warm after cold start. Friday solid six foot waves in a fresh straight SE wind. Beachie barrels bru. Muizies Sunny and warm. Saturday a waning 4-5' swell runs in clean light SE winds slowly dying into a glassy evening. Swell down to 3' by end of day. Muizies a bit muddled and small, maybe 1' surf. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. Sunday small fun 3' surf in kiff light variable winds puffing fresh NW and broken. Muizie small 1' but offshore or glassy. Partly cloudy and hot. LOOK OUT! HUGE SWELL TOMORROW!
