A bit more swell this a.m.: surf is in the knee to waist range w/some bigger sets likely breaking on the outside sand bars on the early morning low tide. The wind is light West early but you can feel it trying to bend more SW. The Onslow Bay buoy is showing more size this a.m. (5' short period out of the South), so I would expect a bit more size on the beach on this incoming tide. Factor in the SW wind which is forecast to increase during the day, so you may be better off hitting it in the first half of the day. Worth a look...

  • 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!
