Just a small pulse of swell this a.m.: the surf is flat w/knee & knee+ sets. There is some limited tropical activity off in the distance and if you could bring a waterproof book with you and sit on your log and wait, you could track down a fun wave. Keep an eye on the Onslow Bay Buoy for a possible (gradual) increase in swell over the next few days. It's still early and the swell window is barely open, but you don't want to get caught w/your baggies down.

  • 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!
