Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Weekend 27 May 2017

Cooking 4-5' open coast surf Friday in fresh W offshores. Proper winter day. Swell eases by 20% during day. Saturday stiff white capped SW busters blow, and a 4-5' SSW swell builds to potentially 4-6' by nightfall. Sunday the proper swell has dug in. A pumping 6-8ft SSW groundswell grinds the open coast in crisp offshores, easing to light SW in evening. Epic. Consistent with great direct S direction. Monday may fire at dawn before a forecast NE onshore digs in. Solid 4-5' at least. Goes crumbly. Tuesday going off in crisp NW devils breeze going mild W then glassy. Epic waves. Serious 16 second grunt, with 8' sets open coast. Points fire.
