For the Afternoon Report The surf is still coming in it is just the South wind and the current is reeking some havoc on it. Our wind is South at 15-20 making for Side shore conditions along with some pretty steady current to paddle against. The water temp is 50 degrees along with an incoming tide to the next High at 6:35 this evening. Finding the rigt spot is key so enjoy the weather and go Search. Tonight's forecast is for SW winds 20-25 becoming NW with gust to 35 late then NW 15-20 for Sunday Morning.  Look for another update again in the Morning here on OBX  Live Surf.

  • 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!
