Hurricane Watch There are currently no tropical systems across the East Pacific basin, and none are expected to develop over the next few days.
For Monday morning things look to start off on the slow side, but rest assured that the next swell will fill in throughout the day. This energy will come up the line from South to North from a 200 degree angle with 18 second intervals. If you’re patient, or lucky, some of the scout sets will roll in earlier than anticipated, but the meat and potatoes don’t look be served up until late in the day on Monday into Tuesday morning.
