Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Tuesday 9 January 2018

Conditions look good Tuesday with clean offshores and a nice smidgen of 4-5' swell hitting open coast, with 6' sets or bigger by arvi. Nice. Water kiff and warm too. Wednesday the nice little run of surf is done. A light NE onshore builds into a beastly snotklapper. Thursday pomping beasterlies smack the coast and a solid 4-5' east windswell smeared to shore in the moisture-laden wind. The onshore dies late arvi, glassing off into the evening to make way for a west switch. By Friday morning, a good few hours of crisp offshore have worked wonders, and swell has arrived. Clean cranking conditions, with sets 3-5' from a nice southerly direction. Kiff. Saturday lekker dawn patrol seas tho swell has gone. Expect 2-3' surf in glassy light offshore puffing light SE onshore.
