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.

SW swells continue to stack up in the South Pacific but the tropics look like they may rage over the next week

SW swells continue to stack up in the South Pacific but the tropics look like they may rage over the next week

We have all kinds of swell getting thrown around in the Central America/Mexico regions over the next week. There are a number of modest S and SW swells that are basically stacked up and ready to keep the whole region in playful, if somewhat inconsistent surf for the rest of the week and beyond. The really exciting stuff will be happening a lot closer to home…currently the EPAC tropics have two tropical storms (Karina and Lowell) that will be doing a good job pushing surf into the exposed spots of Baja…however later in the week it looks like we are going to get yet another tropical system forming up off the coast of Central/Southern Mainland Mexico. If this third system can form in the right place, and keep far enough off of land, we could be looking at bigger waves arriving as the storm slowly moves through the region.

The SPAC continues to pump out summer swells…look for overlapping S-SW energy to send in more playful waves

The SPAC continues to pump out summer swells…look for overlapping S-SW energy to send in more playful waves

While the current round of S-SSW-SW swell hitting Mainland Mexico and Central America aren’t massive, they are consistent and thanks to newly arriving energy will easily continue through the end of the week and likely right on up to the end of August. Long-range charts are showing a little gap in our swell production, but as we actually get closer to real-time it looks like it will be less of a problem thanks to some newer, better positioned, developing storms. The local tropics look like they may see something brew up in the next few days as well…it is closer to Mainland Mex than the last several tropical storms/hurricanes, but it will still be moving out of the region at a good clip so we may only see some limited energy before it gets too far away from the coast.

Solid swell will slowly back down but new pulses will keep our surf healthy through the weekend

Solid swell will slowly back down but new pulses will keep our surf healthy through the weekend

We have a nice sized SSW-SW swell peaking throughout the Mainland Mexico and Central America regions right now. The current energy will start to slowly taper off as we move through the next couple of days, however new shots of both SSW and SW swell will arrive through the week and the upcoming weekend that will slow down how fast the current swell drops and help keep plenty of rideable/healthy sized waves showing through the upcoming weekend and likely into early next week as well.

New S-SSW swell, both tropical and Southern Hemi swell help drive up wave heights on Monday.

New S-SSW swell, both tropical and Southern Hemi swell help drive up wave heights on Monday.

Monday will be a decent surf day. Our SPAC swell and the new tropical energy (from Hurricane Iselle) will be adding some bigger waves to the well exposed beaches while morning winds remain light. There will still be some humid, even remnant subtropical drizzle, but expect it to become a bit drier as we move into the afternoon

If you can survive the weekend you’re in for a big week

If you can survive the weekend you’re in for a big week

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast A couple more days of smaller surf before we see this new SSW-SW (200-220) start pumping.  No exaggeration there either, it could get big for a few days. http://solspot.com/buoy/mainland-mexico/forecast The weekend start off with lingering SW swell (215-225) and some new long-period energy from the SSW-SW (210-220) [...]
