Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Monday 2 October 2017

A bumpy blownout dawnie because a miff beasterly blow Monday and this builds into a proper horrid yeast wind Tuesday blowing up a storm, almost literally because by Wednesday a mangled pea soup mixture of miffness and swell directions and sizes with an early glassoff then the elastic snaps back and the pressure bursts and a white-capped SW buster is through by mid-morning. Heavy rain seeps in from the west into the arvi and evening. Thursday sees heavy rain, fresh SSE winds and mangled mixed up seas. Friday if the rivers have not made the sea an ugly brown colour, it's going off 4-5' with nice south swell and fair punch at dawn in kiff light winds, but puffing fresh onshore later.
