Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Weekend 6 June 2020

The surf has gone Friday after an epic, thumping week of proper big winter surf. Today, a ragged NW breeze breaks up leftover peaky 2-4ft bumps on open coast. Muizies 2' maybe smaller, in crisp offshore. Partly cloudy and cool. Saturday similar conditions, with surf hanging in at 2-4ft in moderate bumpy NW winds. Muizies 1' maybe 2' in crisp offshores again. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday a little more oomph and light winds could mean a marginally fun day to surf. Hope for solid 4ft sets open coast in glassy light NW winds, calm in arvi. Muizies still teeny, despite clean offshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday again, kiff glassy conditions with small 2-3ft surf. Clean, calm seas with a puff of light SW to W and periods of no wind. A moderate SW later. Muizies 1ft and clean. Partly cloudy and warm. Tuesday swell up to 4-5ft instrong SSE winds that will overnight become W with BIG rain due tomorrow early. Partly cloudy and warm, with evening showers turning into driving rain in early hours of Wednesday.
