Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Monday 16 January 2017

Pumping south winds smack the Wilde Kussed Monday easing to moderate later. Surf looks 2-3' windswell, tho a 4' groundswell shows late in the day. Tuesday dawnie might be fun 4' but moderate onshore NE is due. A stiff beasterly set to blast the hump off Wednesday reaching a near-gale in arvi. It's a mess. Big windswell builds. Thursday dawns crisp W which is brushes away all the beast wind blemishes, but this soon becomes a rumping W buster, and it goes windy and white capped. Some 4' groundswell may show beneath the wild horses. Friday might be fun 2-4' on points in crisp moderate to fresh W winds.
