Small East and NEast swell mix: surf is in the knee range on the sets w/a bit of NE funk mixed in. A few factors to consider: a 5-10 minute wait for the sets; when the sets do come they top out around knee high; the sets are sectiony w/an easterly rip; (last but not least) air temp. On the plus side the tide is incoming which may add a much needed push diminishing the wait time. If I had to call it, I wouldn't say it's unridable; it's Tyroachable.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!
