Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Wednesday 19 September 2017

Naas direction to a bit of punchy 16sec S swell Wednesday but a High pressure lurks and a moderate E builds into a stiff beasterly easterly blown out onshore. Thursday lots of 4-6'+ sets hit open coast in leftover onshore, BUT the west switch seeps in and over lunch, it glasses off, then puffs wif a whiff of NW landbreeze going moderate west and things are looking better and better and better. Friday the west becomes more a winterish busterly front with scattered scudding squalls and strong SW winds that are pumping SSW from later arvi. Swell 6ft in morning, becoming 8ft by evening. Saturday cooks 6-7' on points early before a light S puffs SE then goes strong onshore beasterly. Sunday blown out nasty onshore slowly dying off into glassy but broken up evening. Mixed up east and west swell both subsiding slowly.
