Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Thursday 22 June 2017

After a clean morning Thursday the arvi goes a bit wild and woolly as a big SW buster arrives and the weather turns nasty. Sea starts to heave by late in day. Friday giant swell. Spots wild. Woolly. Out of control. Swell to 20ft open coast at 18 second perios. Wind too strong. Eases later to light to moderate SW and by evening its a mere 10ft in mild offshore. Any takers? Saturday moderate NW devils wind puffs N at times. Would fire if wind good. Plenty SSW 6'+ swell around, easing. Sunday glassy and kiff day of winter surf with 4' lines early puffing onshore in arvi. Monday could be 6' and kiff south swell with grunt going off at dawn before a nasty beasterly NE onshore snuffs it out.
