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!

There are no organized tropical features across the East Pacific basin at this time. No tropical development is expected for at least the next three to five days.
For Sunday we’ll see waist high + NW wind swell and inconsistent knee to waist high waves out of the SW. There may be a few straggler sets every now and then, but keep your expectations low.
