For the Afternoon Report we have had more surf today than we have in a while and the skies have cleared as well. The waves are still coming through in the Thigh to Waist High Range even with the higher tide. Our only issue is the wind as it has come onshore from the SE at 10-15mph making surface conditions textured and somewhat crumbly. Our water temp is rising from this Morning and is now 64 degrees. The High tide is at 4:27 pm and we should see improvement from a couple of hours after that all the way to dark. Tonight's forecast is for SW winds 5-10 then SW 5-10 for Thurs. Morning. So enjoy your evening and come back for another Update 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!
