Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Weekend 21 October 2017

Nice clean early start Friday with 4-5' surf @ 13sec and a light SW onshore worsens a bit. Bumpy later. Saturday same surf, maybe a tad smaller in light clean SE offshore, but puffing fresh going strong S. Bit weak for points. Sunday much moore munch! A bigger 4-6' groundswell from kiff west direction is pulsing early, and all day it's growing, slowly, feasibly a tad bigger by evening. Winds moderate S going fresh to strong. But it's by Monday that the real grunt comes. A 15ft x 18sec pulsing long swell is chundering along open coast, poings on fire 6'+. Winds moderate SW onshore. Tuesday long tailed cranking 6-8' west swell in cleaner early winds, light SSE but again, puffing southerly. Naaas!
