APP ISSUES: FYI – The app is shut down for the time being so just go the mobile site on your phones browser, it does exactly the same thing and you can enlarge the live stream with a pinch. The powers that be won’t let me update the APP and re-submit it because they insist it’s too similar to the mobile site…. F’N Apple store messing with me! Sorry for the interruption in service!

Tropical Depression Emilia’s strength continues to wane and will likely become post-tropical later today.
Tropical Storm Fabio has developed and is located about 525 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Maximum winds are 50 mph. It is moving to the west-northwest at 13 mph and will likely strengthen to a major hurricane in the next few days. Fabio will enter a substantially conducive environment for rapid intensification early next week given lessening mid-upper-level wind shear and very warm water over the region.
For Monday morning we’ll continue to see waist high sets for the exposed South facing breaks. This 205-210 degree swell will be strongest in the morning and start a slow, methodical fade throughout the day. The most exposed South facing breaks should also pick up some 10-12 second interval Tropical energy from a sideways 175-180 degree angle. Lastly we’ll have some smallish short interval NW wind swell serving up knee to waist high peaks for the better West facing breaks, (310 degrees with 8-9 second intervals).
