THE SURF REPORT
Friday, Sept. 30 | 8:30 a.m.
This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop Surf report for Friday, Sept. 30 at 7 a.m.
‘The last day of our %30 off sale is today! We also go back to fall hours of operation on Saturday. We’ll be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until next season.
We have west/south-west winds at around 5 knots, waves are clean and glassy. Surf is around thigh high, with an occasional waist high set. Scared to call it much bigger, but it looks like it could be fun on a fish or a long-board.
Edisto Bouy is reading 2 ft with a dominant wave period of 8 sec.
High tide will be at 10:44 a.m., low will be at 4:56 p.m.
Look for west/south-west winds to continue today at 10 to 15 knots, keeping surf clean, textured and small.
National Weather Service marine weather forecast calls for “A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE WATERS THIS EVENING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN PREVAIL THIS WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK.”
Winds will be hard offshore behind Friday night’s front, so whatever swell, if any, can make it past these hard offshore winds will be clean
Hurricane Ophelia remains well offshore, and look for occasional distant ground-swells to filter into our beaches.
Swell could pick up during the middle of next week as Tropical Storm Philippe moves west across the Atlantic, but we’ll update.
Weather today will be mostly sunny with a high of 86.
Water temp is around 79*.
Sunset is at 7:09 p.m.
