Here’s a couple shots from Mainland Mexico last week. This isn’t even one of the “Big” days. The the surf was DOH to TOH for 8 consecutive days. It was actually rather frightening, but the adrenaline glands are finely lubed up and everybody came home safe and sound!
For Friday morning that SW energy will continue its slow, methodical fade as the waves get smaller and less consistent. The better South facing beaches should see waist to maybe chest high sets in the AM. The angle will be from 190-200 degrees with 14 second intervals.
We’ll also see some smallish knee to waist high NW wind swell from 310 degrees with 8-10 second intervals.
The better South facing breaks will be the best bet, but the size and power will continue to wane.
Am early minus tide does us no favors – 07:33 AM -0.89 feet Low Tide

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. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.
The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
