Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Weekend 23 March 2019

Lots of SE in your future. Friday looks stiff SE, with False Bay blown out. Big gaping 6-7' tubes on the cold water side. Cooking in straight SE offshore. Icy cold. Lekkerrr. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday clean early in SE and leftover 4-5' surf, but wind goes S, which is kak for both sides. Partly and warm. Sunday the southerlies (that time of the year twixt summer and winter) blow moderate to fresh, and the surf is 2-4' and dying or going too south. Muizies not kiff. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday the rorting SE klaps you to Brazil. That is all. Literally. Partly cloudy and warm. Again. Tuesday a cooking 8ft x 15 sec groundswell slams in from the deep, with epic lines, altho the SE has built itself up into a froth. Muizies blown out onshore. Partly cloudy and warm to hot.
