Central America

Report Date: Fri. July 31, 2015

Tropical Conditions:
Hurricane Guillermo is headed towards Hawaii and it doesn't look like it will be aiming any of the swell at Central America or Mainland Mexico.


Swell Forecast:
SSW-SW (190-220) eases through the weekend.

The first pulse of swell in a series that start up this weekend will arrive this afternoon/evening from the SW (210-215) arrives Saturday with 18 second periods, and will build to a peak Sunday/Monday with around 3-5 feet of deepwater swell.  The second more S-SSW (190-210) swell shows up Sunday adding another 3-5 feet of deepwater swell holding through the middle of next week.  Tuesday the 4th a third pulse arrives from a more southerly (180-200) angle arrives with more long 19 second periods.  This run of moderate to plus sized surf should mean standout breaks could be running chest to overhead+ with better exposures/focal spots seeing well overhead surf Monday through at least Wednesday next week.  The better focal spots could be running overhead-double overhead+ even.  Size will ease a little more Thursday and Friday next week as the swell mix subsides.

Beyond that the long-range models look a little quieter, with a couple smaller systems moving away from the ice in the SE Pac early to mid-next week.  This could mean a few more smaller pulses of S-SSW (180-200) for around the 10th.  Stay tuned for updates.

Weekly Outlook:
Friday the 31st swell starts to ease a little bit.  Standouts should be running chest to overhead+.

Saturday the 1st new SW arrives, standouts should continue running chest to overhead+ with bigger waves running a couple feet overhead.

Sunday the 2nd the new SSW-SW gets more SSW energy and builds into the head high to well overhead range.

Monday the 3rd, SSW energy continues to build, maintaining head high to well overhead surf at standouts.

Tuesday the 4th, standouts should be running head high to well overhead, with a few better exposures seeing set waves in the double overhead to double overhead+ range.

Wednesday the 5th wave heights should hold for a lot of better S-SSW exposures, but ultimately size will be backing off.

Thursday the 6th, S-SSW swell mix eases more. Standouts should be running chest to overhead+
