Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Monday 20 March 2017

Lekker clean start to a icy blue (ocean) Monday after all the SE. Smooth 3' peaks open coast for fun. Light to moderate SW puffs later. Tuesday teeny 2 to perhaps 3' surf open coast in moderate S breezes, glassy at dawn. Bumpy SSW breezes later. Wednesday slight increase to like solid 3' with winds puffing moderate to fresh S. Weskus kind of day. Thursday and, groundhog day. It's a ditto, calling Tango Foxtrot, it's a replica. Maybe 3' in light going moderate S to SSW. Friday new swell fills in all day 3-4' going on 4-6'+ in fresh to strong S to SSE winds.
