Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Weekend 23 June 2018

Fantastic run of big swell ahead, with Friday giant 20ft+ on the bommies in moderate NW winds. Muizies firing 2-4'. Partly cloudy and cool. Saturday swell has calmed to a panic. It's 5-7' open coast but strong NW winds are pummelling it, and the rain sets in from 3 or 4pm. Swell gets bigger, going on 8-10ft by dusk. False Bay feathered by frisky stiff offshores 2-3'. Cloudy and cold. Sunday ooooh! Now there's another spate of grunt. Swell 18ft x 18 seconds suggests 25ft bombs in moderate NW. Firing at some breaks. Out of control at others. Muizies 2-4' straight and cooking. Partly cloudy and cool. Monday solid 6-8' builds to 10ft again in light clean SE early going strong SE. Muizies epic run is done. Tuesday more solid 8ft surf in fresh NW winds, and Muizies back to lekker logging conditions 2-3'. Swell dropping gradually.
