Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Weekend 18 February 2017

Mild onshore breezes build slowly Friday with soft nowhere 2' bumps at best at most spots. Moderate yeasterly onshore puffs. Watch new groundswell show signs of arriving 3-4' in the evening. Saturday now vee talk no? A clean comfortably punchy 4-5' SW swell runs open coast in crisp feathered offshores puffing moderate to fresh. Nice.  Sunday should cook again at sunrise before a mild clean SW to SSW breeze starts to swing S then moderate to freshly miff SE onshore. Swell solid 4-5' easing to 4'. Monday a bit of leftover 3' swell is messed up by onshore winds that come up early. Onshore pumps later, obscuring late arrival of yet another swell, this time 5' from the SSW. Tuesday sorry but a consistent SSW swell hammered by SE onshore.
