Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Weekend 27 August 2016

Luffly conditions Friday - leftover SE ruffle in glassy kiff seas, light winds, sunny skies, and a cooking 4-6' west swell easing off to 4' by nightfall. Muizies wobbly onshore going light onshore, with 2' maybe 3' lines, easing off tho. Saturday calm. Glassy. Big lack of swell tho. Perhaps 3-4ft sets early, easing to 3' sets in glassy and or light SE breezes. Muizies 1-2' and glassy with mild onshore aspect. Sunday calm flat 1' mirror seas, for paddling or diving or swimming. Don't bother sailing. Glassy variable SE to S slowly freshens a few kts mid to late arvi. Muizies super clean, going light onshore, 1' teeny. Monday slow increase of a new 2-4' groundswell in very lekker calm morning winds (SE), but fresh W onshore due later. Muizies 1' going on 2' and actually nice offshore arvi. Tuesday light going fresh NW breezes and 2-4' surf open coast. Muizies lekker offshore but small 1-2' at best.
