Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Thursday 21 February 2019

Slightly iffy irritating south winds Thursday that plague us this year. Clean 4-6' open coast, and fun waves on some points, mainly lefthand ones. Partly cloudy and hot. Friday swell holds at 4-5' in lekker glassy early seas, with a whiff of light SW bump in morning, puffing moderate and worse by arvi. Partly cloudy and hot. Saturday the swell holds at 2-4' a little softer now, with similar light S in morning, puffing moderate in arvi. Partly cloudy and hot. Sunday swell jacks a bit to 4' in lekker light S winds in morning. A little patch of mild wind as the High pressure stays out to sea. Guess what. Partly cloudy and hot. Monday well an exact replica windwise, but now even smaller swell 2-3' perhaps. Mild wind early. Moderate crosshore SSW later ... and ... partly cloudy and hot Dot.
