This looks like a perfect set up for at least upper-teens wind. But…
The first image shows the isobars of a large high pressure in Great Basin extending over the 4 corners and into mainland Mexico.
This results in isobars over the Sea of Cortez creating a N. to S. pressure gradient.
The next image shows a close up on the model output for La Ventana and El Sargento waters. The color suggests upper-teens winds.
Add to that the boost of local thermal wind to the Los Planes Valley and we might reach the low 20’s… BUT
The satellite imagery from Friday twilight shows the clouds from the Sub Tropical Jetstream are moving towards La Ventana and Los Barriles.
If these clouds are too thick we will have weaker thermal winds and the El Norte winds will have a hard time filling into the beaches.
This would mean weaker up and down wind anywhere near the beach.
