Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Thursday 16 November 2017

A bit of leftover SE swell Thursday running maybe 3' or so with moderate SE onshores rippling it up. Marginal unless the dawnie had a couple. Friday a soft bit of weak 3' south swell maybe run along the south facing exposed coast, but winds are onshore again. Similar velocity, ie moderate puffing fresh in arvi, with more yeast than SE. Saturday hey hey now it's starting to look nice. Small 3' SE swell at first, but getting better into the arvi, going 4' if not 5' and really lekker surf with clean moderate W offshores. Inside points are turning on, and those special spots might yield berries on the evening sesh. Sunday spoilt for choice with 4-5' from SSE and very kiff dawnie. A SW component to a new groundswell fills in later to 6ft+ possibly, but by then the onshore picks up. Monday coooking surf 4-6' at many spots (to 8ft open coast) in lekker offshore, winds freshish. Strong busters blow later towards evening. Swell jacks.
