Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Monday 16 January 2017

Lekker surf ahead! First, tho, moderate to miff onshore SE Monday to wonk up a slowly increasing 2 becoming 3' south swell, with perhaps 4' sets on open coast by evening. Tuesday a ugly burst of beasterly onshore smashes the coast, reaching neargale strength in arvi. Mangled mixed up surf. Wednesday wild messy sickly seas and residual onshore keeps it miff and nasty. However, the sea breeze eases all day, and a west switch due from 6pm or so. Meanwhile a long range groundswell is slowly starting to register under the windswell mess, and a full night of offshores and building swell sees Thursday dawn transformed. Clean 4-5' south swell runs in crisp west offshores. Wind steady. Good surf all day. Friday more consistent 4-5' surf around open coast with potential 6' sets in more crisp moderate to fresh offshore SW. Yes please.
