Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Monday 27 March 2017

Small to flat on points Tuesday with 2' bumps, maybe 3' wildside coast. Clean smooth SW offshore all day. Need swell. Wednesday you get swell: nice boost to 15 second period and punchy, if inconsistent, 4' sets slowly growing in size and consistency in glassy early winds, but alas breeze due to go light then moderate NE onshore. Thursday 3-4' surf in lightly broken morning sickly NE effect, but could be clean and offshore early, and it glasses off by late morning going offshore in arvi. Fun, if smallish, 2-3'. Chance of 4 footers open coast. Friday lots of 4' soft but okay swell and it might get bit bigger in arvi. Winds clean moderat W offshore. Should be fun. Just not cranking. Saturday similar, with slightly weaker 2-3' windswell. Offshore at least.
