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!

Daniel continues to weaken and has lost tropical characteristics. The area of low pressure is located around 690 miles to the west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The low will continue to move generally westward over the open ocean for the next 24-36 hours before dissipating by late Wednesday.
Meanwhile, we continue to monitor an area of low pressure about 600 hundred miles south of Acapulco, Mexico. This low center is expected to organize into a tropical depression or storm over the next few days. If it does become a storm it will be named Emilia. This disturbance will continue to track westward away from Mexico and is not expected to impact any land.
Lots of activity in the Tropics! It should just be a matter of time until we get a legit swell maker for So Cal!
For Wednesday morning we’ll continue to see waist high + surf with small, inconsistent sets for the exposed South facing breaks, (170 degrees at 12-13 seconds), and light NW wind swell, (310 degrees and 10 second intervals).
