Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Melkbos to Doring Bay

Weekend 27 May 2017

Friday swell now SSW and quite a bit misses the coast. Maybe 3-4' on south facing open coast in a glassy morning puffing moderate S. Saturday moderate S wind blows and small 2' surf pulses to 4-5' long range long lulled sets by nightfall. Slow arrival. Sunday clean SE offshore and fun 3-4' lines on open coast, possibly a few slightly bigger. Winds go fresh SSE later. Monday lekker warm bergish day with straight E offshore and steady stream of 3-4' west swell. Tuesday ooh. It looks epic. Strong new PUMPING west swell x deep 17 sec energy and sets to 10ft. Winds slightly iffy at this stage. Moderate NE early could mean the berries early. Moderate NW could blow tho. Watch this space.
