Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Weekend 23 February 2019

A macking swell smacks Friday 6-8' potentially on open coast, but the big fat but is the big blasted beasterly easterly that kaps you all day. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday kiff conditions today. Hopefully an overnight land breeze has cleaned up a ribbed, broken sea from the beastly onshore. If so, then you have really kiff sheet glass conditions, with a super fun 4-5' swell, and lekker surf options. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday now it's firing 4-5' and warrants the sunnies smiley face for sure. Size perhaps not in the adrenaline mode, but wuffs is wuffs. The west has been blowing over settled seas, and a new swell with 15 second grunt is punchy and lined up. Break out of jail for this one. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday awesome conditions. Light variable winds. Small swell now, 2-4', but super fun on exposed coast. Partly cloudy and warm. Tuesday wow, what a run. A new swell builds particular arvi, with 4-5' SSW sets after a small to flat dawnie. Winds fresh crisp SW offshore. Partly cloudy and warm with showers.
