THE SURF REPORT
Fri. April 13 | 3 p.m., pics from a.m.
Good afternoon, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report for Friday, April 13 at 3 p.m.
We’ve got east winds averaging 10 knots this afternoon. Surf is choppy.
Surf at The Washout is ankle to knee high in bumpy, weak conditions.
We just came off a high tide at 2:29 p.m. Low tide will be at 8:35 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 1.6 ft. at 8 seconds. So, there is no swell at the buoy.
The National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast calls for: ” HIGH PRESSURE WILL EXTEND ACROSS THE WATERS THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.”
Our wave forecast for Folly is not looking to great for Saturday. We could see a small trade-wind swell Sunday in the thigh to waist high range. Perhaps a small long-board wave on the late afternoon tide Sunday. Surf picks up a bit Tuesday and Wednesday in a Bermuda Trade wind swell/south-wind swell combo ahead of a cold front. So let’s keep our fingers crossed we get some small swell next week.
It is 70 now under sunny skies. Beautiful beach weather here at Folly.
Sunset is at 7:49 p.m.
Beach traffic is moderately to busy this afternoon.
Thanks for checking Ocean Surf Shop.
