Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Thursday 11 October 2018

Crisp SW offshore early Thursday becomes a stiff SW buster, with 3-4' punchy swell building to 4-5' in the arvi. Cloudy and cool to cold with showers. Friday solid 6' or bigger swell hits open coast but winds are swinging S then SE and freshening from mid arvi into the evening, becoming miffly SE onshore. Partly cloudy and cool to cold with showers. Saturday ugh! The onshore kaps you a snotklap of salticracked miffness. The surf is slammed into oblivion, and a solid 4'+ windswell becomes a salt-blasted 5-10ft windsea mess. The beasterly peaks a straight yeast gale in the arvi. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday lank messed up 2-8' E windswell in continued stiff miff beast wind. It backs off, going glassy for a time over lunch and early arvi, then puffing moderate SW offshore, which starts to clean up the mess, but perhaps not enough, yet. Partly cloudy with showers. Monday a crisp moderate to fresh SW offshore blows and the windsea is easing, gradually getting replaced with a building 4-5' SW groundswell along open coast. Partly cloudy and warm.
