Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Monday 13 August 2018

Super fun waves Monday in lekker light landbreezes early. Expect solid 6ft sets open coast, with a moderate S wind eventually going a bit sideshore in arvi. Partly cloudy and cold to cool. Tuesday new swell arrives over the orginal swell for two swell directions, SW and WSW. Sets to 5' grow to 8ft in arvi. Winds moderate to fresh S. Some points are fun. Partly cloudy and cool. Wednesday cranking 6-8' surf in moderate S winds and now a nice WSW direction is more direct for the lefthand points. Nice. Partly cloudy and cool. Thursday surf eases but still 3-4' or so in lekker clean variable glassy morning, puffing moderate W onshore. Cloudy and cold - very cold early - with showers. Friday slew of new swell to 6' runs in fresh S winds. Look at the points. Partly cloudy and cool.
