Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Agulhas to Plettenberg Bay

Tuesday 7 August 2018

A wintery spell Tuesday as a storm scrapes by bringing cold weather, stiff W offshores and banging 6-8ft swell. A bit too much wind, but some sheltered points fire. Partly cloudy and cold with light showers. Wednesday swell direction goes south and its firing. Cooking 6-8' lines from epic direction in clean mild offshores. Epic day. Partly cloudy and cool. Thursday lekker glassy day with clean 3-4' surf (a tad bigger open coast) on points in calm or offshore start, puffing mild variable SE. Cloudy with showers. Friday fun day surf with clean 3-4' SSW swell running on points with perhaps some five footers open coast in clean fun W offshores all day. Cloudy and cool to cold with heavy showers. Saturday trend is for building surf, starting 2-4' in clean light N offshores, with 6ft sets x punchy 14 sec showing by end of the day. Winds puff bumpy miff NE though. Partly cloudy and cool.
