The swell direction is coming from the east leaving us with small crumbly waves in most cases.The NE wind, on this end of the beach, has enough east in it to be straight sideshore making for choppy conditions. There is a small swell out there but, for the most part, it's barely breaking on this high tide. The cover photo is what it looks like at the typical breaks; the rest of the photos are at the inlet (where you can actually see the swell breaking.

  • 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!
