Emerald Isle, NC

Today's Report


Fun Factor:

Location: Emerald Isle
Size: 1-2 ft//knee
Surface: clean//glassy
Wind: NNE @ 5
High Tide: 7:30:00 PM
Low Tide: 12:59:00 PM
Water Temp: 81 °F
Sunrise: 12:00:00 AM
Sunset: 12:00:00 AM
The thin layer of ESE ground swell is still hanging around along w/a bit less short period SE swell than yesterday. The net result is knee-high glassy waves breaking on the beach at most spots on the early morning high tide. A bit less tide would help open up a few breaks but you'll have to time your tides perfectly to take advantage of these clean micro-waves. The incoming this afternoon (off the low tide) may be an opportunity (or it may be that if you stare at it long enough it becomes a wave).

  • 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!
