Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Thursday 15 February 2018

Mild weather, light S winds, teeny surf Thursday as weak S windswell brings 1-2ft bumps to open beaches (points flat). Winds go fresh S. Sunny and hot. Friday undersized groundswell makes a small mark, with 2-3' sets x 15 seconds slowly building consistency and a few 2-4' sets by arvi. Winds moderate S going fresh to strong. Weather sunny and warm to hot. Saturday lekker conditions. No wind early. The swell has gone SSW and bigger, with occasional 4-5' sets. Points small because swell has to wrap far and wide to get in. Lefts might be 2-3' (long lulls). Winds go bumpy SW onshore. Sunny and very hot. Sunday muggy and warm with possible showers. Light bumpy W to NW breeze and mildly frontal looking. Surf 2-4' open coast. Monday surf steadily builds, 3-4' to 4-5' in arvi but wind does too. A glassy light S at dawn is blowing strong S in arvi.
