Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa


Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Sunday 13 August 2017

Big smoking barrels Sunday as sandbanked bars get blasted by 6-8ft swell in fresh SSE tho better SE direction at first. Muizies fun 3' and wobbly but not terrible early, progressively dissolved by stiffening SE. Monday swell more South now. Good for False Bay, which looks 3-4' and a wind swinging SW bodes well for an arvi surf with morning moderate SSE. Other side 3-5' and iffy winds, tho dawnie ok. Tuesday new swell to solid 6ft or a bit bigger has arrived but the wind is fresh SW. Rain showers. Muizies could be fun off- to sideshore SW and 3'. Wednesday frontal look and strong SW messes with 5-7ft swell going black SE-ish 20+kts. Muizies ok 2-3' early, going miff onshore. Thursday kiff 4-6' peaks in frisky straight SE offshore. Muizies onshore and messy.
