Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Weekend 21 April 2018

Friday nice consistent regular 4-5' surf open coast in clean early offshore SE but it puffs southerly later, not strong. Points have a couple of small ones. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Saturday calm and clean morning with 2-4' lines and fun waves open coast. Small to flat on points 1-2'. Wind puffs bumpy light to moderate SW onshore. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Autumn is here. Sunday shows a bit more swell, with consistent building 3-4' open coast, a few 5 footers feasible by lunchtime. Winds light variable and kiff all day. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Monday a bit of 14 second grunt shows in a 3-5' swell, but the front she is moving in with stiff NW onshores and blustery, stormy weather. Heavy rain showers at times. A taste of winter. Tuesday hey hey hey. Now the swell pumps. A solid 6-8' west swell grinds open coast. Epic light NW puffing mild to soft onshore bump. Could be an epic weskus day if wind holds off. Partly cloudy and cool to warm.
