North Carolina (South) Surf Report & Forecast

Surf Forecast Brief Outlook: Look for dropping 3-4' S/SE windswell leftovers along the Crystal Coast on Wednesday morning with the surf coming down in size through the morning and into the afternoon. Breaks in New Hanover County see 3-4' S/SE windswell and developing NNE wind chop mix. Winds are N 15-20kts becoming NE in the afternoon/evening. Worst Bet: Easterly facing breaks in New Hanover County that don't offer any protection from the N/NE winds. Windswell/swell mix is on tap for the middle and second half of the week before easing over the weekend. Check the premium forecast for more details.
