Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Monday 6 February 2017

Could well have been a kiff dawnie on points early Monday with cranking 5' x 15 sec groundswell and clean offshores before a nasty onshore builds and ruins it. Tuesday smacked by onshore. No go. Wednesday pulse of weakish by okay 3-4' SSW swell feasible on points and nice clean early winds are sorting out the residual effects of the NE, and then a west puffs nicely. However, by brekkie to mid morning, a rumpy pumpy SW buster grinds thro, and it goes pears from the other direction. Thursday nice bit of S g-swell, with 4' or bigger lines open coast in crisp SW offshore likely at sunrise before it swings moderate S then SE, which is worse. Friday the onshore turns into a nasty beasterly, tho small window possible at dawn. Expect 4' surf moered by dik NE beasterly.
