Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Thursday 16 November 2017

A fresh to strong SE wind blows Thursday brushing back a flat sea. False Bay onshore and miff. Friday lekker clean. But lekker flat. A few dribbly 1' bits at Muizies might mean a logging sesh, but very little energy around. Winds clean SE puffing moderate S. Saturday slow increase of a bit of 3' west swell in light going moderate SW to W onshores. Muizies loverly offshore, but you might as well swing or play with your rubber duck or practise your SUPping. Sunday different ball game! A bootiful long range 16 second West swell to 6' if not more with long lulls but epic glassy lines early. Naaas! Lekker morning before it dissolves in fresh SW onshore. Fun 2' lines wrap into Muizies for kiff morning, and okay arvi, and packed to the rafters. Monday would cook 10ft but a strong NW and fierce little cold front mangles it. Some solid 3' stiff offshore sets at Muizies? Heavy rain showers due later. Hold thumbs.
