Hurricane Odile swept up the coast of Nayarit, producing some good juice at San Pancho's rivermouth. Solid 5-6 footers lined up during the day while many double-overhead sets kept the surfers stoked.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
