Hurricane Watch An area of low pressure just south of the Mexican Riviera continues to show signs of further organization on satellite imagery. This low pressure is located in a zone of warm waters and light wind shear. Thus, we expect a tropical depression or storm to develop over the next 24-48 hours. In the meantime, regardless of development, very heavy rain and gusty winds will occur across the Mexican states of Guerrero and Colima.
For Saturday morning we’ll see the action begin to slow, but there will still be a little meat left on the bone as the NW wind swell drops off into the waist to chest high zone and continues to slowly fizzle throughout the day.

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.
