Solid late season SSW-SW swell peaks through the week with a couple more playful swells setting up out the back

Solid late season SSW-SW swell peaks through the week with a couple more playful swells setting up out the back

New long-period SSW-SW swell starts to move in fast on Wednesday, building through the day and eventually peaking late Thursday into Friday morning before very slowly backing off as we move into next week. This is a pretty decent sized pulse of swell that we have rolling in over the next few days, particularly since we are starting to move deeper into the Fall season. Long-range forecast charts aren’t looking quite as good as they did last week, however there are still a couple of storms moving through our swell window that will help tack on some smaller, more playful sized swells onto the tail end of our bigger pulse. The tropics are threatening to spin up another depression near Southern Mexico that may end up becoming our next tropical storm later this week…not sure how much of a wave maker it may end up turning into, but we have plenty of Southern Hemi swell to worry about at this point, so any extra swell will just be frosting on an already good-sized surf cake.

Moderate sized mix of swell through the weekend and early next week. bigger SW on the way

Moderate sized mix of swell through the weekend and early next week. bigger SW on the way

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast The weekend and most of next week there’s going to be a small to moderate blend of S-SSW swell.  Size may be surfable but conditions wont always be.  If you can wait it out though… there’s a much better chance at scoring some solid SW swell through [...]

Chunky funky mix of swells keep things rideable through the week…bigger and better swell lined up for October

Chunky funky mix of swells keep things rideable through the week…bigger and better swell lined up for October

Swellwise things are little a little funky this week…there will be some decent, even healthy energy in the water, but a lot of it is coming from nearby sources, including some windswell from the steady winds that blow up from the Inter-Tropical-Convergence-Zone (ITCZ), and a big patch of thunderstorms that has aspirations of becoming a ‘named’ tropical storm sometime this week. Long-range things look much more organized…a bigger, longer-period Southern Hemi swell is set to arrive around the beginning of October and if things go well it has the potential to produce some sizeable surf.

Leftovers get overlapped by background energy keeping some fun surf around through the weekend

Leftovers get overlapped by background energy keeping some fun surf around through the weekend

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast SW (200-220) and S swell (180-190) swell mix from earlier in the week will ease through the weekend being replaced by smaller background energy coming out of the Southern Hemisphere.  This should keep surfable size around through at least mid-next week.  The models are showing a southerly [...]

Solid SSW-SW swell sends waves to the region while TS Polo gets ready to send some tropical energy to Central Mexico

Solid SSW-SW swell sends waves to the region while TS Polo gets ready to send some tropical energy to Central Mexico

Plenty of long-period SSW-SW swell tracking up from the Southern Hemi over the next couple of days. At the same we have newly formed Tropical Storm Polo starting to lurk along the edges of Southern/Central Mainland Mexico with a good chance of becoming a close-proximity hurricane over the next couple of days. Overall it looks like most areas will have some healthy-sized fun surf through at least Thursday and then things will begin to wind down. The tropics have a chance to keep Mainland Mexico going for another couple of days, but Polo will be pushing a little close to the coast for comfort and we may have funky weather and wind hitting the areas that will be able to pull in the tropical energy.

Holy swell Batman… Next week is going to be bombarded from all directions

Holy swell Batman… Next week is going to be bombarded from all directions

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast SSW-SW swell (190-210) continues to bring chest-head high+ surf  to most of the region’s standouts.  This long-period swell will ease through the weekend as Central and Northern Mainland Mexico get hammered by tropical swell.  As tropical swell slowly fills in farther south later in the weekend new [...]

Central America and Mainland Mexico see wave heights increase through the week and then get bigger over the weekend

Central America and Mainland Mexico see wave heights increase through the week and then get bigger over the weekend

The Southern Hemi continues to keep Mainland Mexico and Central America in decent sized waves for the next several days. Currently we are just winding down from a bigger shot of SW swell that hit late last week and held through the weekend. The trailing elements of that swell will keep the surf rolling through as we move through the middle of the week, finally backing all the way down by the weekend. Before the lack of swell has a chance to even settle a little bit we will have two new South Pacific swells pushing wave heights right back up into the well overhead+ range…and if that wasn’t enough we also have another tropical system spinning to life just off the coast of Central Mainland Mexico that has the potential to spread around some stacked up local tropical energy as we head into the weekend, helping some areas see healthy sized, but questionable shaped surf for the second part of the week. This tropical system is forecast to move away from land (at this point), but you will still want to keep an eye on it, just in case it decides to swing back toward Mainland Mex.

Good sized SSW-SW swell fills in this week…expect bigger waves by the weekend

Good sized SSW-SW swell fills in this week…expect bigger waves by the weekend

There is a decent string of SSW-SW swells on the way to Mainland Mexico and Central America…some of which is already showing and more that will be arriving as we start to move into the upcoming weekend. The South Pacific is staying active enough that even though the surf is forecast to drop a little next week there will still be plenty of energy hanging around to keep things playful and fun. On the tropical side of things we have TS Norbert who just pulled together off the coast of Central Mainland Mexico…he doesn’t look like that great of a wave maker at this point, but he is close enough to land that we may have some weather and wind issues both for parts of Mainland Mexico but Baja as well…(make sure to keep an eye on his behavior if you are in the area).

SSW-SW blend continues with better pulses due late next week!

SSW-SW blend continues with better pulses due late next week!

Overlapping SW swells stick around through the weekend as the residual WNW Marie swell fades out along the Central American coast.  Next week we’re going to see the first in a series of long-period swell arrivals from the SSW-SW.  This new run of energy was generated by a well angled storm track, and a couple [...]

Fun run of SW swell sticking around for a while…better storms setting up more swell for September

Fun run of SW swell sticking around for a while…better storms setting up more swell for September

While a few areas are still feeling the leftover effects from Hurricane Marie for the most part we are looking at some fairly mellow, but still fun, surf for the next several days, and another round that will help push us through the weekend into early next week. Long-range charts are showing a much more active South Pacific developing over the next several days that will likely set up a whole train of new SSW-SW swells that will arrive at the start of September and likely hang around for at least a couple of weeks…these storms still have some development to undergo but the odds are looking good that we will see a nice end to summer and strong start to the fall season.
