The Lutha Report for Hamptons Surf:
Chest to head high and overhead, pumping S swell with NW winds! Get out there and shred the gnar on your performance boards, step-ups, and/or semi-guns! Swells should continue to get bigger throughout today…

Wind Forecast:
NW winds at 5-10 kt, becoming W late…

Water Temp: 69°–73°
Wear a short-sleeve full, a springie, or a wetsuit top and boardies.

Montauk Point (Ocean) Tides:
LOW: 8:38 a.m. • HIGH: 3:26 p.m. • LOW: 10:12 p.m.

Next Chance For Surf:
Long period ground-swell from Hurricane Gert continues tonight into Thursday morning with NE winds… Then, Friday–Saturday we are looking at SW wind-swell, and then NW winds Sunday morning….

Happy surfing!
