We've got some swell this a.m.: surf is in the chest to shoulder range w/head high sets. It's a bit unruly early-on but there are some gems out there. The Onslow Bay Buoy has shown an increase of swell since earlier this morning, so expect solid surf all day. Break out the tea leaves for the wind forecast since it changes every hour but we should see some periods of offshore winds towards the 2nd half of the day. Keep an eye on the flags...HIT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 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!
