Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Wednesday 19 September 2017

Some solid six or seven foot sets Wednesday in stiff SE breeze. Beachies fire 4-5'+. Muizies miserable and blown out. Thursday 4-6' sets open coast in bumpy SW onshores. Muizies side shore 2' maybe 3'. Not bad early but more S in wind brings a bit more of an onshore angle later. Friday a black SE look as showers fall and front slenters and morning west winds swing strong S into arvi. West swell still pours tho" solid 6 becoming 8ft by evening. Muizies fun 2' early, blown out onshore later. Saturday cranking 8' and strong steady straight SE brushes blue barrels (bru). Brass ball razor sting. Muizies develops nasty facial tic. Checks into therapy. Sunday 4-6' glass in chillos water puffing W then WSW as front slips past. Muizies glassy 2-3' going good and clean and fresh tralala (offshore).
