Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, December 9 at 8:30 a.m.
Stop by while you’re out here surfing this week to grab a holiday gift for your favorite surfer!
Waves at the pier this morning are waist-to-chest high with a head high set in a very high angled north-east swell. There is a lot of current running down the beach, so get ready to paddle if you are surfing this morning.
Winds are north-east at 25 to 30 knots, and surf is very choppy and disorganized.
Look for surf to clean up some mid-afternoon when winds go north-west at 10 knots – increasing to 15 to 20 – but some current should continue down the beach all day.
High tide is at 9 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:12 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:04 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading a whopping 12 ft. at 9 seconds in an easterly wind swell.
We hope that this big, high-angled north-east wind swell will clean up some this afternoon as winds are forecast to go north-west, straight off-shore averaging 15 knots. There should be some sort of easterly swell in the water with clean conditions into the first half of the work week. Another storm system will roll through and push up choppy south wind waves Friday and into Saturday of next week. So there are some waves in the forecast. Come see us for some neoprene, because no one wants to surf in these conditions without a good wetsuit.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A strong low pressure system will move through the area today. High pressure will then gradually build from the west and persist through Thursday. A storm system will affect the area Friday and Friday night, followed by high pressure.”
It’s 49* and raining this morning. We are under a costal flood advisory. Look for a high of 60*, with rain abating and clouds after 2 p.m.
Water temperature has dropped to 56*.
Sunrise was at 7:10 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:13 p.m.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday Dec. 8 at 8:30 a.m.

The Folly Beach Christmas Parade will start at noon today. Stop by while you’re out here to grab a gift for your favorite surfer!

Waves at the pier this morning are less than knee high.

Winds are NNE around 15 knots but surf is still pretty clean.

Look for winds to gust up to 25 knots this afternoon as we see a front move in bring plenty of rain.

We are coming off a high tide now. Low tide will be at 2:31 p.m. and high tide will be at 8:25 p.m.  The Edisto buoy is reading 2 ft. at 4 seconds in a short period SE/NNE swell/wind combo.  Still small surf out there today with decent form, just breaking close to shore at this morning’s high tide.  There is a storm system brewing out of the Gulf and headed our way for the weekend. This low pressure system should begin to build waist to stomach high in choppy north-easterly wind-swell Saturday afternoon, building Sunday. Sunday morning should be choppy, but winds should come north later Sunday afternoon and surf could clean up some later in the day Sunday. But, look for lots of easterly current (down the beach) for Sunday.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A strong low pressure system will move through the area today through Sunday. High pressure will gradually build in from the west early next week. A cold front will move through Friday and Friday night.”

It’s 49* and cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 54* with storms beginning this afternoon.

Water temperature has dropped to 56*. It’s getting cold out there so come see us for some new neoprene.

Sunrise was at 7:07 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:13 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday Dec. 7 at 8:30 a.m.
Come on by Ocean Surf Shop to Christmas shop for the surfer in your life. It’s quick, easy and you get a free walk on the beach with each holiday gift purchase, should you choose to redeem it.
Waves at the pier this morning are flat with a knee to thigh high set.
Winds are west/north-west at 5 knots, and surf is very clean.
Look for winds to continue north today at 5 knots, and surf zone should stay clean all day.
We are coming off a high tide now. Low tide will be at 1:49 p.m. and high tide will be at 7:44 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 1.6 ft. at 9 seconds in a medium period easterly ground swell.
We still have small surf today, and Saturday will likely start the same way. There is a storm system brewing out of the Gulf and headed our way for the weekend. This low pressure system should begin to build waist to stomach high in choppy north-easterly wind-swell Saturday afternoon, building Sunday. Sunday morning should be choppy, but winds should come north later Sunday afternoon and surf could clean up some later in the day Sunday. But, look for lots of easterly current (down the beach) for Sunday. Surf continues clean but a bit drifty to start the work week in the waist to stomach high range. There should be some north-easterly ground swell through mid-week (next week), before a cold front moves through in the latter part of the week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. A potent storm system will affect the area Saturday through Monday. High pressure will return for the middle part of next week before a cold front moves through late in the week.”
It’s 43* and sunny this morning. Look for a nice beach day with a high of 59* and sun today.
Water temperature has dropped to 56*. It’s getting cold out there so come see us for some new neoprene.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, December 6th at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at the pier this morning are less than knee high.

Winds are NNE with gusts around 12 knots and surf is slightly textured.

Look for winds to lighten today then switch from the SE at 5 knots this evening.

We are coming off a high tide now. Low tide will be at 1:05 p.m., and high tide will be at 7:02 p.m.  The Edisto buoy is reading 3 ft. at 4.2 seconds in a short period NNE combination.  Small and sideshore surf continues today as high pressure continues to hover over the area.  Look for increasing NE winds up to 25 knots for the weekend while a front moves into the area.  Waves look to pick up late Saturday into Sunday, but expect pretty messy, high-angled NE surf over the weekend and lots of rain.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through Friday. A potent storm system will impact the Southeast this weekend, then move off the Mid-Atlantic Coast early next week. High pressure returns next week.”

It’s 39* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 54* and sun today.

Water temperature has dropped to 56*. It’s getting cold out there so come see us for some new neo.

Sunrise was at 7:07 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:13 p.m.
