Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Wednesday 19 September 2017

Lekker punch mid range swell runs Wednesday to 4-5' with light going moderate SSE winds to start, puffing moderate S. Thursday more 5' sets run from nice west direction at punchy 16 second intervals but winds look moderate SW and a bit onshore along open coast. However, lefthand points have a few 3-4' waves. Friday exact same swell and winds almost same, with moderate S in it innit. This time, however, it pumps southerly by evening. Saturday swell has jumped a notch to 6-7' x mid-range 14sec punch x fresh to strong SSE to S winds. Again, those points. Otherwise, a bit windy open coast. Sunday dwindling 4' swell in glassy, calm conditions puffing bumpy SW onshore.
