Hurricane Watch Tropical Storm Lidia continues to lash out at the Baja Peninsula and the western Mexico coastline with strong winds and flooding rain. Lidia continues to struggle with land interaction from the Baja Peninsula which will likely not allow it to further strengthen.
Winds gusts of up to 70-80 mph will continue to batter southern Baja California, close to the circulation center. Farther east, the shores of mainland Mexico will see gusts of 40-60 mph.

Lidia will continue north-northwestward over the upcoming days before slowly emerging into the eastern Pacific about 300 miles south of the United States border as a tropical depression later this weekend as it moves into an area of cooler water.


For Saturdaymorning looks like a good day for rock skipping with knee to waist high surf up and down the coast. There is a chance that we may see some sporadic sets from our next swell start to filter in later in the day, but Sunday looks way more promising.

The conditions look to be fair with variable winds out of the South in the 3-8 MPH zone all day long. The sea surface should remain relatively smooth most of the day. The air temp tops out at a blazing 91 degrees on the sand.

For Sunday morning there’s a glimmer of hope as a fresh SW swell rolls into town from a 205-210 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. This should produce waist to chest high sets for the top South facing beaches. This energy will have a bit more West in it so it will sprinkle love to the less exposed beaches a bit more liberally than the last few rounds of swell. Nothing to get real excited about but a starving man refuses no crumbs!
