Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Thursday 21 February 2019

A solid 8'+ swell has arrived, with outer reefs firing Thursday in crispy SE winds with a touch of S. The beachies are barrelling. The wind goes more SE this arvi and pumps. Muizies blown out (especially after the army bravely repelled a giant force of jellyfish from invading South Africa on Tuesday night) and it's quite kak. Partly cloudy and hot. Friday swell holds at 4-6' in fresh SE early, going S later. Get it early. Lekker waves at first. Muizies still shell shocked. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday the swell holds at a little smaller 4-5' in moderate S winds all day. Lots of S in the wind this year! Mildly crap at Muizies. Partly cloudy and hot. Sunday swell jacks again from another pulse from another storm, and it's glassy early for kiff waves. Puffs moderate bumpy onshore WSW later. Muizies better, with nice clean seas and fun 2' lines in the bay. Partly cloudy and hot. Monday kiff start windwise, glassy, but now small swell 2-4' easing to 3'. Puffs bumpy SW later again. Muizies 1ft longboard fun in the sun. Sunny and hot.
