HURRICANE WATCH October 8th, 2014 – Simon weakened steadily Tuesday night and is now a tropical rainstorm. Rough surf and dangerous rip currents will continue to impact the western coast of Baja California into Southern California for the next day or so.
Elsewhere across the eastern Pacific, tropical development is not expected for at least the next 48 hours.
By Thursday morning we’ll see inconsistent sets out of the SW and some small background NW energy. Waves will be in the waist high plus zone, but be sure to factor the high tide into the equation, (6.43 feet High Tide shortly after 10AM). Dawn patrollers will see a nice tidal push but things will get swampy as the tide fills in.

For Friday morning we’ll see small background swell out of both the SW and NW. There may be a few larger straggler sets out of the SW if you’re lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
