Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Thursday 22 June 2017

It's a heaving hillocked mess out there Thursday as stiff SW onshores blast a heaving 15ft sea that grows into a dik 25ft bombsea. Muizies 3-4'+ in okay to sideshore offshores. Cold. Frontal. Rain showers. Friday ooh deepwater bommies host feathery 15ft sets that ease all day to around 8. The breeze puffs moderate SSE. Muizies mildly miff in onshores despite plenty 3-4' leftovers, easing to 2-3'. Saturday could be 4-6' solid and realtively clean in moderate SSE winds. Muzies 2-3' and wobbly in onshores. Sunday drats, an epic SSW long range power swell fills up False Bay with solid 3-5' lines, but its fresh going strong SSE and onshore. Other side cleanish and 3-5' with a few bigger ones but swell very south. Monday kiff cooking 4-6' lines in fresh SE offshores. Muizies 3' and messy.
