Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

Weekend 24 November 2018

An epic little run of beachbreak barrels as a strong 6-8' west swell smacks open coast Friday with punchy 16 second juice. Fresh to strong SSE could be better direction. Muizies kaput in stiff whitewashed onshore. Saturday clean kiff 4-5' leftovers with moderate to fresh SSE breeze. A lot less wind. Sunny and warm to hot. Muizies a bit onshore. Sunday the old west swell wanes 2-4' and dying. A new SW swell gradually builds from 3' to maybe 5' open coast by dusk. Winds straight S light going moderate. Muizies not kak. Not kiff tho. Mild onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday solid swell to 6'+ from SW in light S winds puffing moderate to fresh and strong SSE by dusk. Muizies not terrible in morning early, but blown out later. Partly cloudy and warm. Tuesday stiff south winds blow today, killing False Bay, and not ideal for the other side neither. Surf 4-6' continues but wind not the best. Partly cloudy and cool to warm.
