Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
HURRICANE WATCH October 26, 2014 – The Eastern Pacific Basin remains quiet, and no tropical development is expected over the next 24 hours. However, we are monitoring an area of showers and thunderstorms a few hundred miles south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec for possible development beyond the next 24 hours.
Everything looked so good on paper for today that I lulled myself into a glass half full attitude for this mornings surf. Unfortunately my mug sprung a leak right around 6:45AM as I unsuccessfully attempted to mind surf a jumbled ocean with predominately poor shape. If I can’t make them mind surfing then I don’t stand a chance when it comes to reality. Oh well, nonetheless, there’s tons of swell in the water right now and some signs of rips and sand bars at the West facing beach breaks.
For Monday morning, that ground swell will continue to produce chest to head high + sets for the best West facing breaks. The swell angle remains right around 290-300 degrees.
There will be a subtle tide push through the morning and hopefully the Easterly winds will iron out the bumps we saw on the sea surface on Sunday morning.

The conditions look good as high pressure promotes a clean ocean surface. We’ll see breezes, out of the E/NE, in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and then those only get up to 8-10 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 75 degrees.
For Tuesday morning the NW swell will be on the decline, but there still should be some waist high plus high sets rolling in at the best West facing breaks.

For Wednesday morning there’s not too much on the radar with only waist high plus surf for the better West facing beaches.

The conditions look great with 1-8 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and onshore winds in the 9-11 MPH zone in the afternoon. The air temp jumps up to 78 degrees.
For Thursday morning we’ll see a slight bump in NW energy from a 300 degree angle. This should put the better West facing beaches into the waist high plus zone.
