Melkbos to Doring Bay

 

Weekend 30 May 2020

The surf cooks Friday in epic glassy variable winds all day. Swell is pumping 6-8ft on exposed coast. Evening puffs light to moderate SSE. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Saturday swell has turned a bit South, but still 3-4' sets inconsistently on open coast with maybe bigger ones if there are remments of the west swell. Nice offshore E to SE early, going moderate SSE. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday swell dropping dramatically, with an ambient 2-4' SSW swell running. This means long gapped 3' sets at best. And it is getting smaller all day. Winds light SE early going light S, puffing moderate in arvi. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday a proper new west swell fills in all day. Starts very small and slow 2-4ft, going slightly more consistent but slow 4-5' by noon, and starting to cook in arvi 5-7ft. Winds light SE going light to moderate S. Could be epic. Real grunt to 17s by evening. Partly cloudy and cold going warm. Tuesday going off its hairy face! Epic 16 second period. Solid 8ft sets. Calm clean dawnie glass. FIRING. Light onshore SW later. Might be fog. Partly cloudy and cold to cool.
