So first a report on this part of Mexico and our recovery from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Manuel. We recieved massive amounts of rain, over 30 inches in 2 days, and there was some damage and flooding. This area, Troncones, Ixtapa & Zihuatanejo, has for the most part recovered. No hotels are reporting serious damge or closures. There is some road damage but we are still able to travel where we need to go. Within another week or two I am certain we will all be back to 100%.
On to the surf. An unusual West-SW swell today pushing nearly straight into the bay. Waves at overhead to occasional double over. Conditions were actually very good, but a bit tricky for anyone unaccustomed to this break.
The water is clearing, though still a little murky from the storm.
5 out this morning with some really good rides.
Forcasts showing a dip mid week, but coming right back up for next weekend..
Air temperature in the upper 80′s to low 90’s and water temp is around 86. We are into the rainy season so possible intermittent daily showers and partly to mostly cloudy skies.Good Afternoon from Troncones, MX and Manzanillo Bay
Unseasonably small swell. Looking at shoulder high to just head high. The point was pretty much a non-event today, with all the action shifting over to the beach break where there were plenty of nice sets.
Only 1 out on the point. The beach had up to 8 at one time.
Looking forward to mid-week bump in the swell to get us out of this and into some good conditions by next weekend.
Air temperature in the upper 80′s to low 90’s and water temp is around 86. We are into the rainy season so possible intermittent daily showers and partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Sunrise is 7:34 and sunset 19:43. High tide at 07:22 and 1.8 ft.
