Hurricane Watch Major Hurricane Kenneth churns over the open water of the East Pacific
Kenneth has rapidly weakened from a Category 3 storm yesterday to a Category 1 hurricane overnight. Kenneth will continue to weaken as it interacts with a large upper-level low just north of Hawaii and moves into a more stable air mass. These more hostile environmental conditions will cause Kenneth to weaken to a tropical storm later today and should degenerate into a non-tropical low pressure area by Thursday.
The rest of the East Pacific including the Central Pacific should remain relatively quiet through the rest of this week.
Wednesday morning blah blah blah… no waves sorry!

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET FORECAST – One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.
The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
