Some short-period South swell this a.m.: surf is in the waist to chest range and unruly. The Onslow Bay Buoy is showing 6.2' of windswell this morning, so there is enough juice coming our way, it's just a matter of wind direction to straighten things out. The wind forecast is ever-changing but the best chance for offshore winds would be sometime this afternoon. Watch the flags.

  • 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!
