Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast

The mix of SSW-SW (205-220) should get an extra couple overlapping pulses of SSW-SW (200-220) over the next few days that will keep playful surf around for through the second half of the week.  Size eases a little over the weekend, and then another pulse is due for the start of next week.  Read more for details.


Easing SSW-SW (205-220) and overlapping SSW (200-210) energy should help maintain at least chest to overhead+ surf at standouts.  It’s possible that a few better exposures and deepwater spots could still be seeing surf up to several feet overhead through Thursday.

Overall wave heights will begin to taper Friday, but there will continue to be some smaller overlapping SSW-SW (190-220) pulses filling in Friday and Sunday to at least help maintain knee to chest high+ surf along the exposed coast through the weekend.

North Pacific Swell Forecast

North Pacific isn’t showing much of anything.

South Pacific Swell Forecast

Long range models continue to look pretty quiet.  There are a couple weak systems expected to send some small background swell for mid-next week, but we’re looking at systems that originally showed some promise and then were downgraded…. so that kind of sets the precedent for what else is showing up further out.

It looks like early next week we could see another system move out from under New Zealand.  It doesn’t have a great angle, and is likely to be downgraded, but it could mean at least another round of small but fun surf for around the 30th.  I’ll have more details later in the week. Stay tuned.

Next long-range forecast expected for Friday the 17th of November
