Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Tuesday 8 August 2017

A nasty beasterly onshore NE is going to kap Tuesday with small window early when dawnie might have yielded a few clean 4' lines on some points. The onshore smashes the hump off Wednesday at horrid neargale gusts. Totally kaput. Thursday a west is thro to brush back a big washy messy weak east windswell 3-5'. Friday dawns with possibly fresh N or NNW winds - a precursor to a frontal storm in the far west by the Western Cape. However, the swell has not arrived yet, but does some time in the arvi to evening, with 4-6' sets hitting open coast. Winds ease to glassy by late arvi, so watch the evening sesh for a sneaky surf. Saturday cooking 6-8'+ on open coast in crisp offshores early altho there may be a bit of S in the wind when it comes up.
