Melkbos to Doring Bay

 

Tuesday 8 October 2019

Wednesday a proper fat 6-8' groundswell pumps thro, building to a solid 10ft on open coast in stiff strong summer southerlies. Partly cloudy and cold becoming warm. Thursday cooking! The swell is 8-10ft solid and a soft SE offshore crisps it into brushed lines. Calm moments mid morning before a miff southerly sideshore stinger winds up. Sunny and warm to almost hot Dot. Friday still lank swell, tho smaller 4-6' and nice west direction. Winds again good early, tho slight S in the SSE pumping S later again. Early birds. Partly cloud and warm going hot. Saturday and still the swell pours thro 6' solid and nice west. Fresh S winds are up early, shtonking later. Partly cloudy and warm to almost hot. Sunday finally surf has eased but still solid 4' or a bit more early, but easing all day, in moderate SSE early going moderate to fresh but lighter S winds this time. Sunny and hot.
