Surf this morning has a bit of chop on it, and the swell is trying to build just a little. Hopefully the wind will pick up a little along with the swell. Forecast shows maybe a slight increase, but we'll just have to wait-and-see. Water temperatures have risen back up, and are really warm so try to get out there if you can. Check back in around lunch for another update on the 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!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves.
