Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Weekend 29 April 2017

A summery spate of weather this weekend, with Friday autumnal and sunny with 2-3' surf in glassy seas. A mild SE puffs later. Muizies lekker clean 1-2' this morning, light onshore later. Warm. Saturday a smidgen of 4' surf brushed by moderate or fresh berg wind NNE. Lasts all day. Ruffled fun 2' lines in False Bay. Sunday straight N breeze and rain showers hopefully fill the dams a bit. Swell holds at 3' maybe. Muizies 1' in N offshores. Monday fresh NW as a twirly scrapes past. Surf 3' and a bit broken and all over the show. Watch a new west groundswell arrive from around 4pm as the NW eases to light. Slow 3-5' sets grow and by Tuesday could be fun 4-6' x 19 seconds and pulsing in moderate SE, slowly freshening to strong by late arvi.
