Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Wild Coast

Weekend 27 May 2017

Dawnie Friday fires with 4-5' lines and crisp offshores before the W buster blasts. Saturday the buster is now a ripsnorting white-capped SW ripper, busting a gut in arvi. A 4-5' SSW swell overlaid by building chunks on horizon as windswell jacks. Sunday some serious grunt on the grind fills in with 6ft+ SSW groundswell sets only showing late in arvi but the busters are the main attraction ... not. Monday goes off in morning 4-5' with moderate NE onshore in arvi. Tuesday horrid beasterly onshore ruins a CRACKING 4-6' swell.
