Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Thursday 11 October 2018

Some west swell Thursday to 4-5' on exposed coast, with winds W to SW onshore, puffing fresh to strong S moving into the evening. Muizies quite fun 1-2' early, going onshore and blown out. Partly cloudy and cool going warm. Friday could be a little bigger but a HONKING SE neargale smashes thro, and Muizies is a writeoff, and in fact in therapy, and the other side water temps rapidly ice up and the pumping wind blast it flat sut plat, with ribbed skewered windchops herded towards Brazil. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Saturday the SE dwindles all day, going light at times, then moderate to fresh in arvi. Sunny and warm to hot. Muizies is ragged and full of broken up 2-4' SE windswell and stiff onshores easing to wobbly then worsening. Sunday a ragged strong N to NW wind blasts thro but its sunny and warm, the precursor to some rain tomorrow. There is little to no swell. Muizies flattening out despite fresh offshore, wind easing. Monday rain showers, and a slow build of a new west swell 2-4' pushing 4-5' at punchy 16 sec intervals but winds moderate W onshore. Muizies looks fun 2' and offshore and super fun towards evening as a bit of grunt wraps around Cape Point.
