APP ISSUES: FYI – The app is shut down for the time being so just go the mobile site on your phones browser, it does exactly the same thing and you can enlarge the live stream with a pinch. The powers that be won’t let me update the APP and re-submit it because they insist it’s too similar to the mobile site…. F’N Apple store messing with me! Sorry for the interruption in service!

HURRICANE WATCH

Hurricane Bud has weakened slightly and is now a Category 3 major hurricane with sustained winds reaching 125 mph. The hurricane is located about 225 miles southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico. Bud will continue to track parallel to the southwestern coast of Mexico. This Cane means nothing to So Cal! We need a strong spinner that tracks to the NW!

For Wednesday we’ll see that SW energy continue its slow, methodical decline but continue to generate some punchy chest high + sets, with some larger stragglers rolling in on occasion, (same 195-200 degree angle with 15-16 second intervals).

Small NW wind swell will continue to cough up some feeble waist high peaks for the better West facing beaches.

Just based on what I experienced this morning there will be long gaps in between sets and then a nice flurry of waves. Be prepared to do some bobbing.

For Thursday the SW swell will continue to a die a slow death and the sets will be smaller and the length of time between them will grow larger. The top South facing breaks will see inconsistent waist high + sets. Uninspiring NW energy will make a tiny blip on the screen but be rather inconsequential.
