A little run of SW swell keeps the region rideable for a few days

A little run of SW swell keeps the region rideable for a few days

Not a lot going on down in the Mainland Mexico/Central America regions right now. We have been seeing a blend of low-grade storms moving through the South Pacific swell window over the last couple of weeks and only marginal swell has been pushed up our direction. The good news is that while we are getting ever closer to the smaller winter season, we still managed to scrape up enough fetch to get a little SW pulse that will fill in over the next couple of days and peak as we head into the later parts of the week. It won’t be big, but it will at least have enough energy to keep us in the water at the top spots.

Small playful surf continues through the weekend and next week

Small playful surf continues through the weekend and next week

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast If you’re wondering why the Central America, Mainland Mexico forecast hasn’t been updated yet this week… its because there isn’t much going on.  There’s still plenty of fun surf throughout the region, mostly in the playful size range, but just hasn’t been much activity in the South [...]

Playful run of fall S-SW swells and one last chance at some local tropical activity

Playful run of fall S-SW swells and one last chance at some local tropical activity

Looks like we are slowly slipping into the Fall/Winter season, and the SPAC is definitely showing signs of fatigue after blasting out swell after swell all summer long. For the next several days we will see a relatively small, but playful mix of S-SW swells that will help keep rideable waves showing at most of the average spots as well as a few bigger, faster waves at the well exposed regions. The one wild card we do have in the deck is a newly developing tropical system that is starting to show some signs of becoming a more organized tropical storm sometime in the next couple of days. While it won’t be a great swell producer, thanks to its positioning and probable track, it does look like it could help add some size to some of the nearby regions. Long-range charts are looking a lot more mellow, but there is still enough activity that we will see some smallish, but playful, Southern Hemi swells keeping things from going totally flat over the next couple of weeks.

A little extra boost this weekend, then back to the grind

A little extra boost this weekend, then back to the grind

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast The mix of smaller S-SW (180-220) energy will get a little extra boost this weekend from a slightly bigger pulse of SSW-SW (200-220).  Size should peak from the SSW Sunday easing through the first half of next week.  Souther Mexico could be looking at some late season [...]

Tropical activity for Southern Mexico, small background swell elsewhere

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast Looks like we’re going to see a tropical system brewing off the coast of Southern/Central Mexico over the next day or so.  That’s going to mean a mix of short-period tropical energy that will vary in conditions depending on exposure to winds.  The storm is supposed to [...]

Small S-SW swell mix on tap for the next several days with some potential tropical ugliness in Southern Mexico

Small S-SW swell mix on tap for the next several days with some potential tropical ugliness in Southern Mexico

Most areas are going to be on the small side for the next several days. There is some swell in the water…mostly a mix of S-SW background swells…that will help keep the better spots surfable, just without any of the summer size we had been getting used too. The mid-range forecast charts are calling for some increasing tropical activity forming down near Southern Mainland Mexico that may cause some issues for both weather and surf quality in the region, but it looks like the rest of the region will be in the clear. The good news is that the SPAC still has a little kick in it, and if things stay on track we will see a pickup in surf size as we head into the last part of October.

mix of SSW-SW swell keeps fun surf around through the weekend.  Smaller surf on tap after that

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast The blend of easing SSW swell (200-210) swell and new smaller SW energy (210-225) that will fill in this weekend will keep some fun surfable size in the water through early next week, but the forecast is starting to look smaller. http://solspot.com/buoy/mainland-mexico/forecast The current SSW (200-210) should [...]

Playful run of S-SW swells keep us rolling through the week but long range is looking a bit sparse

Playful run of S-SW swells keep us rolling through the week but long range is looking a bit sparse

We will see a nice blend of overlapping Southern Hemi swells along with a little bit of short-period local S-SSW windswell moving up from the ITCZ over the next few days. None of these swells look particularly big, but there will be enough energy in the water to keep the better exposed spots fun and playful at least for the next week or so. Long-range things take a turn for the winter-snooze fest. The Southern Hemi is starting to mellow as we get closer to the seasonal change and the storm track has backed way off. Since our region always manages to pull in some sort of swell I don’t think we are looking at a true flat spell…but I do think the average spots may want to dust off the longboards and get ready for some smaller surf.
