Monday in Baja Sur – More S-SW fun

Monday will be a fun surf day in Baja Sur.

We will have a mix of S-SW swell (180-210) and a touch of local windswell.

Most spots, both on the Pacific Side and the Tip, will be around waist-chest high with some occasionally bigger sets. Standout Pacific side spots will be seeing some inconsistent shoulder-head high sets.

Conditions should be good throughout the region. Winds will start off light in the morning and then increase out of the WNW around 10-15 knots by the afternoon. It should stay light enough throughout the day to be surfable at most of the exposed points…particularly on the inside sections.

Again I don’t think that it will be worth a ton of driving on Monday, but if you are close to a decent spot I would definitely take the time to check it…(you just don’t want to be spending 2+ hours getting to a break for the same chest high surf that you just left.)
I think your best bet is to find a well-exposed point/reef, aim for the dawn-patrol or wait until the tide-push. You should probably sneak your small wave board into the quiver as well…just so you can make the most of the semi-inconsistent sets and maybe pick off a couple of the smaller waves too.
