Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Monday 5 December 2016

The surf is going off Monday as a 6-8' west swell glides through in crisp epic straight pure SE offshores. Muizies is onshore and 2-3'. The surf has dropped off a bit on Tuesday but still 4-5' at least. The winds, however, puff moderately manky SW onshore, tho the dawnie might yield a few with the cooler high pressure cell over the land pushing back the onshores until the sun starts to warm up the land. Muizies 2' and fun if a little sideshore? Wednesday lekker surf today. Calm early means open reefs and beaches super fun and glassy and still nice energy, maybe 4-5' and nice west direction. Muizies super fun 2' if not intermittent long gapped 3' sets with glassy start, going light SW to W. Thursday hey a front is hitting us, and strong NW winds blow. Muizies offshore and 1-2' brushed vigorously by the wind. Other side messy. BIG swell builds in arvi, going solid 10-12' by Friday with light to moderate leftover southerlies. Yea man! Whoop whoop.
