Thursday in Baja Sur – Still a bit windy

Thursday will have some surf but it will also have some solid wind rolling through in a few places as well.

We will have a mix of SW swell (190-210), local NW windswell, and some background long-period WNW energy.

Most spots on the Pacific side will be in the waist-chest high range once the tide starts filling in. Standout areas, mostly the well exposed beach breaks and very open points/reefs, will see some inconsistent shoulder high sets.

Cabo spots miss out on all of the windswell/WNW energy…they will be smaller, mostly knee-chest high and will stay on the inconsistent side.

Like I said winds will be a bit heavy. NW flow 10-20 knots is expected throughout the day while the more exposed areas see gusts around 25 knots at times. Cabo will have lighter winds out of the N-NNW around 10-15 knots as they pick up in the afternoon.

I would try and stick to the spots that have a little protection…they won’t be as big as the other breaks but they will be cleaner and will still have a few small playful waves showing at times.
