Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Wednesday 26 July 2017

A dik stormsea, with 10-15ft sets hitting deep water spots Wednesday but it's a rather lumpy, peaky swell. Light NW winds puff moderate to fresh. Muizies fun offshore 3'. Thursday the sea has settled into a glassy 6-8' and really fun conditions. Muizies 2' and fun. A mild SE puffs so it goes even more crisp and offshore. Friday a moderate N to NW winds bumps over a 4-5' leftover swell that eases to 2-4'. Wind goes bumpy SW. Muizies fun 2' and offshore. Saturday new west swell to solid 6' arrives at 13 seconds in clean SE winds but freshening all day to pumping pure SE. Muizies dissolves into a miff onshore after lank offshore days. Sunday loverly 4-6' surf in glassy light variable seas. Lekker! Surf eases and takes on a bit of a south direction. Muizies glassy and 2' and fun.
