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 6-E has further organized and has been named Tropical Storm Emilia. Gradual strengthening is expected over the next couple of days as it moves to the west-northwest. Emilia will remain well away from land and we’ll see an increase in surf and rip currents will impact southwestern facing shores of Baja California Sur and southwestern Mexico into the weekend. The storm is expected to weaken late this weekend and eventually dissipate early next week as it encounters cooler ocean waters.
A tropical wave located south-southwest of the Mexico-Guatemala border shows some signs of development and may become better organized over the next 24-48 hours. This system may organize into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it tracks westward and well south of the Mexican coast late this week or early this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed this one may cough up some decent sized waves! Stay tuned!
For Friday the SW swell will be on the fade with waist high sets from that 170 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.
