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

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

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.

Solid SW swell will ease through the weekend as a new series of S-SW swells maintain moderate size in its wake

Solid SW swell will ease through the weekend as a new series of S-SW swells maintain moderate size in its wake

Central America and Mainland Mexico Short-Range Surf Forecast Solid SW (210-220) swell peaks today and will ease slowly through the weekend.  A series of overlapping pulses from the S-SW (180-220) will help to maintain moderate size through next week. http://solspot.com/buoy/mainland-mexico/forecast The solid SW  (210-220) swell peaks today and should hold size through Saturday morning at [...]

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

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.
