Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Monday 24 April 2017

The SE is easing Monday, and lekker warm weather with smoothening seas and flat, chilly seas, tho 2-4' leftover mush-mulch runs in False Bay. Tuesday clean bergish easterly offshores with tiny seas. Remnant 2' south swell at Muizies. Fun longboarding conditions with glassy seas. Wednesday long range west swell looks rather slow but sets to 4' could pulse every 5-10 minutes or so. A fresh NNW or northerly breeze blows. Muizies flat or 1' but clean offshore. Hope for more rain than forecast. Thursday 3-4' surf around open coast in light to moderate NNW winds, easing to variable SW to W. Friday easing 2-3' waves in fun glassy seas. Wind backs around to light S then moderate SE later. Muizies 1' and clean.
