Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Weekend 17 October 2020

Lekker clean day, with a whiff of crisp SE Friday morning, puffing light going moderate S in arvi. A 3-4' west swell runs open coast. Muizies wobbly onshore 1'. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday swell has waned to like 1-2' with 3' sets early, but those peter out. Winds moderate SSW. Muizies onshore and very small to flat. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Sunday a dribble of swell to maybe 3' if you're lucky. Winds glassy to light S early puffing moderate SSE. Muizies teeny to flat and mild onshore, worsening. Partly cloudy and warm with mild showers. Monday more of that very small 14 second grunt to 3-almost 4ft open coast in light going moderate SW to W breezes, which means Muizies is 1' and clean offshorish. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Tuesday hey hey hey, a lekker run of consistent surf begins today, filling up all day with a solid WSW swell. A few 5ft sets soon grow to 6-8ft grunt, with fresh to strong S winds easing to moderate SW. Muizies onshore and mucky, but ridable 2-3' surf looks to be increasing and becoming favourable cross offshore mid to late arvi into the evening. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Waves for days!
