Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8:15 a.m.
Waves at the washout are waist to stomach high with a chest high set. Occasionally, there is a head high peak.
It is draining out a bit at the morning’s low tide, but still looks super fun.
It should get pretty fun again as the tide comes in mid-morning.
High tide is at 1:10 p.m., low tide will be at 7:11 p.m.
Winds are north/north-west at 5 to 10 knots, and surf is clean. Winds are forecast to stay north-west today, and surf should remain clean.
Edisto Buoy is reading 5 ft. at 13 seconds in medium-to-long period easterly swell.
Hurricane Maria should begin to move north of our swell window as the day wears on, but still sends in some fun easterly swell averaging waist to chest high. With winds out of the north-north-west, we should have fairly good conditions for most of the day. Swell begins to fade on Wednesday, then surf gets small for late week. We should see a choppy north-east wind swell develop over the weekend after a cold front passage on Friday night.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Hurricane Maria will track northward off the Southeast U.S. coast through midweek before turning east-northeast and away from the coast into late week. A cold front will move through the area by early this weekend, followed by high pressure into early next week. Refer to the latest advisory on Maria issued by the National Hurricane Center.”
It is 73* and sunny this morning. Expect a high of 89* and sun with sun today.
Water temperature is around 81*.
Sunset is at 7:09 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:10 a.m.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sept 25 at 8:30AM.

 Waves at the washout are stomach to head high in glassy conditions. Surf looks super fun so get out there!

 High tide is at 12:14am, low tide will be at 6:16pm.

 Winds are NNE at 10-15 knots this am and forecasted to stay low all day.

 Edisto Buoy is reading 9.5 ft. at 12 seconds in medium-to-long period easterly/south-easterly swell.

 Swell from Hurricane Maria is passing our window with stomach to head high sets. With winds out of the NNE, we should have fairly good conditions for most of the day. Maria swell should stick around for the beginning of the work week and last most of the week as well. Tropical storm Lee is now a hurricane it doesn’t look like we’ll get much swell out of him, but we’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if he does.

 Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through this weekend. The high will weaken and shift inland as Hurricane Maria tracks northward off the Southeast U.S. coast through the first half of next week. A cold front could approach the forecast area late next week.” 

 It is 75* and sunny with clouds this morning. Expect a high of 85* and sun with some clouds this afternoon.  

 Water temperature is around 81*.

 Sunset is at 7:15 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:08 a.m.

Good Morning. This is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, Sept. 23 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at the Washout this morning is waist to stomach high with sets to chest high in semi-inconsistent south-east ground swell. There is a RARE bigger set.

Surf is breaking up in the rocks this morning at the higher tide, but should get better form late-morning as the tide drops some.
Surf zone is clean, early.
We have NE winds this morning at 5 to 10 knots. We look for ENE winds increasing 10 to 15 knots late.
High tide will be at 10:51 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:48 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:59 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 7.2 ft. at 11 seconds in building, medium-to-long period easterly/south-easterly swell.
Major Hurricane Maria is starting to push in another big ground swell over the weekend. We should see semi-consistent but increasing long period swell today in the stomach high (plus) range as the tide pushes. We look for another big ground-swell peaking on Sunday, with plenty of ground-swell in the water to start the work week. Winds trend north/north-east at 10 to 15 knots – side-shore – for the period. Swell begins to fade late Tuesday into Wednesday of next week. Another big swell in the forecast for a historic hurricane surf season.

The high will weaken and shift inland as Hurricane Maria tracks northward off the Southeast U.S. coast through the first half of next week.

It is 77* and sunny this morning. Expect a high of 85* and sun this afternoon.
