Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Weekend 21 October 2017

A purple period of peopling eating pumpery starts Friday which is fresh W and feathered 6' surf. Saturday is declining offshores going crisp and kiff in cooking 4-5' surf if not six foot still. Sunday direction grunting from the south now meaning more consistent and going off early at dawn in light offshore to glassy south whiff wif 6'+ bombs to boot. Wind puffs moderate S later, then drops into evening. Another west thro overnight, with Monday off the charts cranking, BUT perhaps too wild and woolly, with serious 8-10ft SSW long period groundswell pummelling. Epic conditions, with stiff breeze in arvi. Cooking! Tuesday absolutely going off 6-8' in epic offshore crisp and clean. What a run!
