The Waves have not improved all that much since mid day with the exception of the incoming tide. The surf is in the Knee to Thigh high range and our winds are WNW winds at 20-30 mph texturing it from the Side Shore direction. This trend of NW winds is suppose to continue until this coming weekend. The best news is our water temp is still a comfortable 69 degrees. So if you need to go South today is the day to catch the best tail winds.  And as always keep checking with us here at OBX Live Surf for the latest Updates three times a day!

  • 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!
