Friday’s Surf in Baja Surf – SW swell fun!

New SW swell fills in more on Friday and it looks like it will be pretty fun for the exposed breaks throughout the day.

The SW’er (215-220) will be showing the strongest through the afternoon but it will have fun waves starting to roll through during the dawn patrol.

Most exposed breaks will be in the waist-shoulder high range while the standout spots, mostly the combo beach breaks, will have head high sets…and maybe a few bigger ones before sundown.

Breaks around Cabo and the East Cape will be a bit more protected from the full energy of the swell. Look for those spots to see surf in the knee-chest high range with a few bigger sets lurking around the best breaks.

Sets for all areas will be a bit inconsistent but worth the wait.

Winds look on the light side…staying out of the NW around 10-15 knots through the afternoon and lighter through the morning.

I think the points/reefs will be the best call on Friday. They will be smaller but cleaner…the beach breaks will be ok but come on, you really come to Baja to surf a point/reef.

This is a good day to get some driving under your belt to get into position for the incoming swell since it is just going to get bigger as we head into the weekend. You should be able to see where the swell is hitting/filling in through the morning, find a spot that looks good and get ready to get some surf.
