The Lutha Report for Hamptons Surf:
Waist to stomach high, blown out, WSW/SSW wind-slop. Winds are forecast to turn offshore tonight, but it could happen sooner… So keep your eyes on the flags, because we might score a late day cleanup session if we’re really really lucky…

Wind Forecast:
W winds 15-20 KT with gusts to 25 KT.

Water Temp: 69° – 73°
Wear a wetsuit top and boardies, or maybe a short-sleeve full, or a spring-suit, depending on your constitution.

Montauk Point (Ocean) Tides:
HIGH: 7:34 a.m. • LOW: 1:12 p.m. • HIGH: 7:52 p.m.

Next Chance For Surf:
W-SW wind-mush Thurs, light offshores with possible residual micro-swell early a.m. Friday, onshore wind-mush Saturday/Sunday…

Happy surfing!
