Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Hangklip

Weekend 27 May 2017

Good day for False Bay with SSW swell to solid 3' running there Friday with showers, and light to moderate SSW to SW breezes. Other side a bit wonky 3-4' perhaps? Saturday perhaps more soft rain and frontal SW to W wind and small 2' surf building quickly from midday and arvi to 4-6' long range long lulled sets by nightfall. Slow to come. Muizies a bit 2' becoming 3' in mild sideshore offshore. Sunday a mixed SSW and SW swell 4-6' in light to glassy S means waves. A moderate S to SE breeze puffs. Muizies 2-3' early in clean seas, puffing mild onshore. Monday hey hey hey. A new swell builds from 4-5' in morning to 6-8' by dusk as wind puffs lekker clean E offshore. Cooking. Muizies light onshore and 2' going 3 in arvi. Tuesday wow. A solid very west groundswell pulses 6-10ft in light to moderate N. Could be epic. Muizies fun 2-3'!
