Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Tuesday 9 January 2018

A shtonking southeaster returns Tuesday to klap the coast with fierce frigid offshores. The swell is still a solid 4-6' but takes a hammering by arvi as the wind becomes its fiercest. False Bay cries crocodile tears as futile lies bring erstwhile tears. Warm and partly cloudy. Wednesday pomping SE dies all day, becoming clean moderate SE. The surf has gone a southerly direction and drops all day, so not a lot west side, maybe 3-4' dying to 2-3'. Muizies still a bit moggy from the onshore missions tho lots of 2-4ft windswell likely, mixed in with a smidgen of 2-3' SSW groundswell. A merry maximised mixup. Thursday teeny tiny surf with 2' bumps open coast, while winds puff mild to moderate S. Muizies quite miff, tho winds no longer stiff. Friday a smidge of stronger period west swell runs 3-4' moderate becoming fresh S. Again, Muizies is not kiff. Saturday 2-3' surf a bit smaller, and same wind, and therefore same for Muizies. All in one, a fairly boring summer run of mediocrity.
