Baja California Surf Forecast August 2022

Check for updates:


Long Period 5ft SSW swell approaching Aug 25th - 30th

As of now, forecast is predicting a long period swell with medium strength prevailing winds during the last week of August, peaking on the 27th. This storm cell, moving off the coast of South America should provide clean conditions and medium to large sized surf throughout Central and South Baja. Swell builds throughout the day on the 25th, peaking on the 26-27thth, with a forecast of 5ft at 16seconds.


Long Period 3-4ft SW swell approaching Aug 14th - 19th.

The middle of August will see an uptick in ground swell from a long range south pacific storm. Forecast is calling for a peak of 3-4ft at 17seconds on August 16, which will most likely groom all southern facing points and beach breaks in Baja California Sur. Winds for this period are prevailing/strong NW, so exposed beach breaks and reefs might blow out early.


Tropical Depression takes quick path to provide medium sized wind swell Aug 7th - 10th

Tropical storm activity and localized wind swell took the fast track north to provide a 'sooner than expected' dash of wind swell. Due to the proximity of this swell, winds will be light Aug 8th and 9th, with head high surf expected for all exposed reefs and beachbreaks.


Tropical Storm Frank adds large, short period SSW swell Aug 1st - 4th.

The best positioned storm of the season rolls through southern Baja during the first week of August. Forecast is showing light winds and building swell through the week, with the swell peaking on Aug. 2 at approx 5-7ft @ 10 seconds. Winds will be light and swirling throughout the mornings, followed by light prevailing NW flow in the afternoons.



Large direct south swell churns off the coast of South America, expected to reach Baja California Sur by Aug 26
