Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Monday 12 August 2019

Solid if a bit messy stormsea Monday with white water heaving on deepwater reefs to a solid 15ft+ with 18ft sets into the arvi. However, a moderate SW going west onshore does few favours. Muizies gangbusters solid 4' in good wind. Bigger sets on the pushing tide this morning? Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Tuesday solid dwindling 10-12ft thumpswell in fresh NW. 'Dwindling' could be too strong a word since it's still 6-8ft+ by nightfall. Muizies fires 2-4' in crisp offshore. Partly cloudy and cold. Wednesday cooks 6-8ft in calm seas in morning. A light SE crisps it up beautifully in arvi. Kraaking Braah. Beaut 3'+ Muizies in morning, onshore later. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers. Thursday west swell now. Clean 4-5' surf in crisp offshore SE at first, a little bit of S in the breeze later, moderate going fresh. Muizies sublime run is done: 2ft slop. Partly cloudy and cool to cold. Friday solid new swell builds. Already 6-7' in fresh SSE winds. Some 8ft sets open coast in arvi as wind peaks with gusts to 25kts. Sunny and warm.
