Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Tuesday 12 June 2018

Tiny surf Tuesday in warm berg wind NE offshores. Could be 2-3' even smaller 2' later. Winds go light NW later as a DIK storm looms in the west out to sea. Partly cloudy. Warm. Wednesday tiny. Might be 2' but 12 second periods and 3' sets feasible, with a 14 second boost to 4' open coast by dusk, tho winds moderate bumpy NW. Warm and sunny. Thursday the front of the front klaps the coast today with neargale NW winds. Heavy rainsqualls set in between 7 and 9am. A messy stormsea builds: 4-8' mess rapidly rising to 8-10ft, with all sorts of localised chop between. Friday grinding 8ft or bigger straight west swell means lank consistent and lank surf everywhere. Winds, however, still fresh NW and bumpy onshore. Showers in morning. Saturday going off 4-6' and possibly bigger in crisp light variable breezes. Epic swell direction means points not far off ambient ocean swell size. Cool. Showers.
