Incoming S-SW swells help to drive wave heights back up as we head toward the weekend

Incoming S-SW swells help to drive wave heights back up as we head toward the weekend

We have a whole crazy mix of incoming SSE-S-SSW swells on the way…many of which will start to arrive as we move through the rest of the week and over the upcoming weekend. While the first pulses aren’t all that strong there are enough of them in the water that we will see some fairly consistent, but playfully sized waves for the next several days. Stronger pulses will start to arrive late in the work week and will likely continue to peak and hold over the upcoming weekend. Again these aren’t the strongest looking swells we have had this summer, but there is enough energy being shotgunned at the region that we can expect plenty of rideable waves for the next week or so…

Mix of S and SW swells keep the better Mainland Mexico and Central American spots rideable

Mix of S and SW swells keep the better Mainland Mexico and Central American spots rideable

Compared to the activity we saw at the end of June (the storms that produced the mega July swell) the South Pacific feels like someone has hit the mute button, or at least turned the volume waaaaay down. There are still a number of storms moving through the swell window for both Mexico and Central America, but in general they are smaller, aren’t sticking around as long, and are not positioned all that well. Still, there has been enough fetch to set up a number of modest sized S and SW swells that will be moving in over the next week and will help to keep the region in playful surf as we head toward the end of the month.

The big swell is winding down but plenty of playful sized S-SW pulses keep us riding through July

The big swell is winding down but plenty of playful sized S-SW pulses keep us riding through July

The larger S-SSW swell is on the way down…it still has a lot of energy in the water but it is quite a bit smaller than what we were seeing over the last weekend. Over the next few days we can expect the trailing end of this S-SSW’er to continue to back down, dropping us into more playful sizes…however we won’t see things go totally flat…there are a number of new modest sized S, SSW, and SW swells on the way that will keep the surf consistent and even push wave heights back up into the overhead range as we head toward the middle of the month.

Big S-SSW swells move into Central America and Mainland Mexico over the next several days…look for a long run of large waves

Big S-SSW swells move into Central America and Mainland Mexico over the next several days…look for a long run of large waves

Thanks to a very active South Pacific we have a number of new S-SSW swells moving into the region over the next several days. The first pulse will start filling in with some long-period energy on Wednesday and we can expect larger, more consistent, swells to follow closely on its heels. Basically we are looking at least 5-6 days of well-overhead to double-overhead+ surf for many spots and some even bigger bombs hitting the deepwater standout breaks. Weatherwise most of the region is pretty much in wet-season mode…but Central Mexico has Tropical Storm Elida sitting and spinning about 100 miles off the coast…fortunately for that region the storm will be weakening and moving away from land just in time for these S-SSW Southern Hemi swells to arrive.

Plenty of waves holding through the weekend and macho sized swell setting up for later next week

Plenty of waves holding through the weekend and macho sized swell setting up for later next week

Over the next several days we will see a blend of overlapping, and decent sized S-SSW swells. Our surf will stay consistently in the playful range with some occasionally bigger sets still filtering into the standout deepwater spots. Local weather looks good for most of the region but Southern and Central Mainland Mexico may be a bit funky as new tropical activity (including lots of thunderstorms) continues to develop. Further out…a large, intense, and well-positioned storm will be moving through our S-SSW swell window over the next few days, which will end up sending a sizeable dose of new swell for later next week and right on in to the following weekend. Looks like early July is going to see some fireworks whether you celebrate the 4th of July or not. Make sure to check out the full forecast for all the details.

Solid run of S-SSW swell heading our way for the weekend and much of next week…more energy out the back too!

Solid run of S-SSW swell heading our way for the weekend and much of next week…more energy out the back too!

Plenty of swell on tap for the next few days…in fact we already have a decent shot of S-SSW swell that has been holding the last couple of days and will be slowly dropping as we move toward the weekend. Fortunately that isn’t the only swell in the water. A new, quickly building, S-SSW pulse arrives over the weekend, continues to build all the way till early next week and will manage to put some healthy, well-overhead surf on our beaches. The hits just keep on coming as well…before next week’s S-SSW’er even gets a chance to start to fade out a new round of SSW energy moves in and helps to keep the overhead+ surf rolling all the way through the following weekend. Long-range is looking promising as well…more well-positioned, fairly intense storms are forecast to move through the SPAC over the next week+…so the odds are good that we will have plenty of good sized surf holding till the end of June and likely into the start of July.

String of S-SW swells send more waves to Mainland Mex and Central America while TS Cristina continues to strengthen

String of S-SW swells send more waves to Mainland Mex and Central America while TS Cristina continues to strengthen

The seemingly never-ending run of S-SSW swells will continue to send plenty of surf into Mainland Mexico and Central America over the next week. It even looks like the steady stream of SPAC swell will continue nearly to the end of June…the long-range forecasts are showing the potential for even more storm activity to move into the S-SSW swell window and reload the wave machine. Closer to home we have Tropical Storm Cristina spinning a few hundred miles off the coast of Southern Mainland Mexico…she is forecast to strengthen while moving away from the mainland, which really limits her wave-making ability for the region…however her current track is going to push her past Baja Sur…so it looks like the tip may get a little bit of tropical energy to go with the incoming SPAC swells

Solid waves on tap for the next week along with some nasty weather from Boris

Solid waves on tap for the next week along with some nasty weather from Boris

We will have a blended mix of S-SW swells holding through the next week (and likely longer) that will keep plenty of surf showing at the exposed areas throughout the region. The long-range charts, while not quite as exciting as the last couple of weeks, are still pretty active with the potential for at least a few more swell-producing storms brewing in the mix that will very likely keep the Southern Hemi swells rolling on in. About the only bummer in the forecast at this point is Tropical Storm Boris who is slowly moving toward Southern Mainland Mexico and will likely cause plenty of weather and run-off issues over the next several days…

The South Pacific keeps rocking

The South Pacific keeps rocking

Plenty of storm activity moving through the sweet spots of the Southern Hemi swell window the last several days…and at least another 4-6 days of lovely storm action is forecast to crank out even more swell. At this point plan on seeing consistent waves for the next week+ with a couple of beefy pulses mixing in that will push wave heights into the well overhead range.

Wave heights build as a whole series of S-SW swells move in

Wave heights build as a whole series of S-SW swells move in

The South Pacific storm track keeps humming along…it has already put several quality swells in the water, some of which arrived over the weekend and more that is showing right now. The good news is that these swells will continue to arrive over the next several days…easily keeping us in some solid sized waves through the next week and likely right on through the end of May. The tropics are starting to show little signs of life, but springy winds are still all over the place, so we may just have to stick with good old Southern Hemi swells, which sounds just fine in our book.
