Hurricane Watch Ramon dissipated south of Mexico earlier Thursday. It no longer poses a threat to land.
The Eastern Pacific Basin is quiet and is expected to remain so over the next few days.
By Friday morning we’re slated to see a significant bump up in size at the best South facing breaks. If models hold true, we should see shoulder high to a few feet OH sets roll in from that same 195-200 degree angle with 18-20 second intervals. This one looks pretty solid, so dust off your paddling arms and find a nice S/SW facing reef or point!
We are also expecting to see a combo of NW ground and NW wind swell enter the fray, with waist, to possibly chest high sets for the top West facing spots. The SW energy will remain the featured player, but the energy out of the West could cut up the long Southerly lines and help out the beach breaks in terms of wave shape.

The conditions look to be good with variable winds in the 2-4 MPH zone until noon and 8-12 MPH out of the South West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to 78 degrees.
For the Hermosa HOTDOGGER SURF CONTEST FORECAST on Saturday morning it looks like Mother Nature will sprinkle at least a little love in the direction of the longboarders. While nothing epic will file into Hermosa beach, there should be a fairly steady stream of smallish, NW ground swell and NW wind swell in play throughout the day. We’re anticipating waist high + surf with some larger sets mixing in.
The more dominant swell will be out of the SW from that same 195-200 degree angle, but the motherlode of energy will sneak right past Hermosa in favor of the more receptive S/SW facing beaches.
For everyone else, expect that SW energy to continue to drum up head high to a few feet OH sets throughout the day. This energy will get into almost any spot with a look at the South and the West/SW facing breaks will get the NW combo swell mixing in!

The conditions look good with variable winds in the 2-5 MPH zone until noon and 7-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up to steamy 79 degrees on the sand.
For Sunday morning we’ll continue to see fairly solid SW swell, and the NW energy holds through the day. The better South facing breaks will see chest to shoulder high sets with head high waves mixing in. This swell will be on a slow methodical fade over the next 3 days, which in a nutshell means it will get smaller and less consistent as time passes by.

This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.

One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple.
