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 Storm Aletta will succumb to the forces of cool water and will generate a little something for the steep South facing breaks but quickly exit with a whimper.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bud will continue to strengthen today. Bud is centered about 300 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico, and Bud may become a hurricane Sunday night or Monday. Bud will continue to track northwestward over the next several days, paralleling the coast of Mexico. Stay tuned… this message brought to you by BUD!
For Monday morning we’ll see that juicy SW swell continue to dish up shoulder high to OH + sets for the better South facing breaks, (200-205 degree angle and 17 second intervals), and in conjunction, we’ll have waist to chest high short interval NW wind swell with 8-9 second intervals from a steep 310 degree angle.
In addition to that action, the SUPER exposed South facing beaches will see some sideways Hurricane Aletta swell mix in. The angle looks to move in from a discriminating 155-160 degrees but will add some sets to select beaches in the OC and San O’ areas. The Tropics are alive and kicking right now so stay tuned for the latest spin!

Hurricane Alletta swell remains on the table but already be on the fade and once again will bypass all but the most exposed breaks.

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET FORECAST – One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience.
