Some early Sam swell showing up this a.m.: surf is in the knee to waist range w/a few slightly bigger sets. Speaking of the sets: there is a nice wait between waves and when they do come you would be fortunate to be in the right spot (not in the middle of a long waist high taffy-like wall of water. The wind is forecast to go more NE so I expect some lump and bump to get in the mix but the incoming tide should bring some more size and possibly some makeable sections. Worth a check.

  • 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!
