Just as expected the Waves with the drop of the tide have improved. It is in the Knee to Waist high range with super clean conditions. Our winds are from the SW at 5-15 mph and the water temp is 79 degrees. I know the waves don't have a ton of push but hey it doesn't get much prettier. The winds are forecast to remain light from the West for the rest of the day and as the tide marches back in this early Afternoon should be Fun! So get out there if you can if not check back with us for the Update here on OBX Live Surf later.

  • 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!
