Small, choppy waves early-on: surf is in the knee range. The small amount of potential there was out there was squashed by the steady W/SW winds that came w/the passing rain showers. the Onslow Bay Buoy is still showing about the same amount of swell as the past couple of days so you may find enough to get wet at some point during the day (but don't expect much). FROM THE CULTURE DESK: THE MOVEMENT is playing in the Outerbanks tonight; in Wilmington on Saturday night and right here in Emerald Isle, at Salt Bar, tomorrow, Friday night... Don't miss out on some serious jams right in your backyard; welcome the band to EI...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!
