Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Monday 13 August 2018

Mild post frontal conditions Monday with winds a bumpy West onshore, not strong. Surf is 6-8' at dawn, but eases all day. Muizies looks kiff light offshore and clean 2-3' easing slightly. Partly cloudy and cold with morning showers, clearing. Tuesday a big gruntswell to 10' or more smacks thro with a lot of S in the direction, filling up False Bay with 3-4' lines. Early is super fun at Muizies 3-4', but moderate S onshore later. Other side might have 4-6' sets at some spots in light onshore SW to W but may be NW at first. Partly cloudy and cool. Wednesday solid 6-8' surf from SW going more SSW direction in moderate S. Muizies mild onshore. Partly cloudy and cool to cold. Thursday cold front comes with stiff NW storm winds, messy seas, and lots of 6-7' SSW swell mixed in with 3-4' swell. Lacks grunt and is messy. Muizies, however, looks 3' and offshore. Cloudy and cold with showers. Friday lank 5-7' mixed up peaky swell in fresh to strong leftover SSW winds moderating to light S by evening. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Muizies onshore and scrappy.
