Today's Report


Fun Factor:

Location: Nags Head
Size: Knee to Maybe Somtimes Thigh
Surface: Clean, Glassy, and Cold
Wind: SW @ 15-20 mph
High Tide: 7:20:00 PM
Low Tide: 1:01:00 PM
Water Temp: 60 °F
Sunrise: 6:02:00 AM
Sunset: 8:15:00 PM
For the Afternoon Update the little waves that were rideable around the lower tide are mostly breaking really close to shore. The waves are in the Knee to Maybe a few Thigh high ones now and again. Our water temp has come up to a balmy 60 degrees and the tide is still on it's way in until 7:20 this evening. Today it is not the wind as a factor but just a lack of swell and too high of a tide. We should see very little improvement for the rest of the day. Tonight's forecast is for SW winds 20-25 then SW 20-25 for Sunday Morning. So it appears we will have colder water temps until we get another wind switch. So enjoy the rest of your day and check back in the Morning for another report 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!
