Melkbos to Doring Bay

 

Weekend 17 October 2020

Small peaky 2-3' west swell Friday in a light SW onshore early, puffing moderate bumpy SSW. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday much of a muchness. Light SW goes moderate SSW, and a small 2-3' swell at most. Summer is here. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday same again Sam, except the small swell seems even smaller because it's from a SSW direction. Slow and small, or flat. Winds are a replica. Light SW early, moderate SSW later. Partly cloudy and warm. Monday a very slight bit of 14 second grunt may mean 3-almost 4ft swell and yet again, light SW goes moderate SSW. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Tuesday now begins a lekker run of consistent surf. Today dawns flat to small, but all day a new 4-5ft swell fills in, with 6ft sets into the arvi, and 6-8ft sets into the evening. Wind is ... whaddya know ... light SW puffing moderate SSW. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers.
