Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Thursday 14 June 2018

Strong prefrontal N winds with a devilish demeanour Thursday before the buster klaps the coast mid to late arvi with stiff white kapped westerlies. Swell 3' going to 6'+ by nightfall as the brunt grinds. Scattered showers. Warmish. Friday now the core of the storm smacks the coast proper. 6-8ft sets smear open coast, growing all day, peaking at dusk 10-12' or so, BUT bear in mind super west direction, which may result in skunkage, ie, most getting blast past the coast. The winds are a straight W gale after all, blasting across the bow. Partly cloudy and cool. Saturday W wind strong, easing, ending glassy to kiff light W. Surf 6' if not a bit bigger, and direction is more SW now. Nice time for kiff session (late arvi). Partly cloudy and cool. Sunday swell due south now, consistent 4-5' with chance of mild morning sickness, improving as westerlies puff again. Cloudy. Monday a new 6-7' groundswell in crisp straight W offshore. Naas! Cloudy with showers. Cool.
