Melkbos to Doring Bay

 

Thursday 30 July 2020

Lekker waves Thursday crisp and clean in light SE offshore becoming moderate S in arvi, with some 4-5' x 14s sets perfectly punchy for open coast. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday sees the swell waning to 3-4' in moderate crisp, clean SE offshore. Sunny and warm. Saturday same again Sam. Fun small 2-4' surf in morning, with a new swell @ 14s x 3-5ft showing in arvi. Clean SE offshore all day, mild to moderate. Lekker sunny and warm. A big High pressure rules. Sunday the wind switches to bumpy moderate NW and the swell eases off 2-3' or so. Sunny and warm. Monday oooh! Glassy windless day, with increasing 4-5' x 15s SW swell showing well into the arvi just as the glass ruffled by moderate SSE late arvi. Could be good after lunch before wind. Partly cloudy and warm.
