I waited as long as I could this afternoon hoping that the wind would come around. It finally has a little NW to it, but the waves are still lacking some form. Great looking peaks in the shoulder to head high range, unfortunately they clamp down quickly. Staying in position will also be a huge factor if you want to try and get a few in. The wind looks favorable for the morning as long as the swell sticks around. Roll the dice, surf now and paddle battle the ocean or keep the suit dry and hope for a clean wave in the morning.

  • 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!
