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 Daniel is located around 600 miles to the southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and will track northward during the next 12-24 hours. The window for additional intensification is narrow as the northward track will take the system into cooler waters by Monday into Tuesday. Daniel is expected to remain well offshore of Mexico and not impact any land.
We are also monitoring an area of low pressure several hundred miles southwest of Zihuatanejo, Mexico. This low center may better organize into a tropical depression or storm over the next few days. This disturbance will continue to track westward away from Mexico and is not expected to impact any land.
For Monday the SW swell will be on the fade with waist high sets from that 180-190 degree angle and 12-13 second intervals.
Some slightly more potent NW swell will fill in too. Looks to be at least waist high + from an angle of 310 degrees and 8-10 second intervals.

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.
