Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Monday 27 March 2017

A new but small swell made landfall overnight and Tuesday looks 3-4' at most open coast in moderate S breezes, strong by arvi. Wednesday period has boosted to 16 seconds and punchy 4 if not 5' sets in clean light SE at first. Might be a bit slow and inconsistent. Winds lighter today, with cleanish SSE to SE to S oscillations. Nice. Surf looks more consistent later. Thursday lekker glassy start, with light SW onshore bump. Surf 3' to maybe 4' open coast, especially early in the day. The swell eases later. Friday glassy and variable winds puffing NW then SW and bumpy. Surf 3' going on 4' later. Saturday 2-3' bumps in clean SE going fresh S. Weak surf.
