Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, June 21 at 7 a.m.
Today, is the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. So, go surf.
Waves at The Washout this morning are knee-to-thigh high with a waist high set. Surf is closing out at the morning’s low tide in a south-west wind wave. Best for a high-volume board. It’s not great, but it is rideable.
Winds are WSW at 10-15 knots, and surf is side-shore with a bit of drift up the beach and semi-clean conditions.
Look for winds from the west today at 10 to 15 knots. Surf zone stays clean with some drift as the waves fade out later today.
We have a high tide this morning at 11:25 a.m., and a low tide will be at 5:16 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 4.9 feet at 6 seconds in a shorth-period south/south-west wind swell.
Some rideable surf in the water this morning and into the high tide through early afternoon. Surf fades later today as westerly winds continue to push down the swell. We see small south-west wind waves return for your weekend in the knee-to-thigh high range. This trend continues into next week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will persist over the Southeast through
at least the middle of next week.”
It’s 75* and sunny this morning. Look for a hot beach day with a high of 93* and sun.
Water temperature is around 82*.
Sunrise is at 6:12 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:31 p.m.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, June 20th at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Pier this morning are stomach high with an occasional chest high wave coming through.  It is fairly disorganized and no one is out this morning.

Winds are WSW at 10-15 knots, and surf is side-shore with some clean faces.

Look for winds to increase later today from the SW at up to 25 knots.

We have a high tide this morning at 10:39 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:35 p.m. The Edisto buoy is reading 6.9 feet at 7 seconds in a WSW wind/swell combo. Some rideable surf in the water this morning but choppy, tropical storm like conditions out there this morning, with waves running north up the beach.  Clean faces if you feel like working extra hard this morning. We see lighter, offshore winds into Friday & Saturday with a chance for a little cleaner wave with a low pressure system pulling north. Keep your eye on it for any window of clean surf as we approach the Summer Solstice!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will persist over the Southeast through at least the middle of next week.”

It’s 79* and partly cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 88* with partly cloudy skies and a chance of thunderstorms this evening.

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 6:12 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:31 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, June 19 at 8:30 a.m.
Waves at The Washout are thigh-to-waist high with a stomach high set. It looks pretty fun on the incoming tide this morning.
Winds are west/sout-west at 5 to 10 knots, and surf is side-shore, but fairly clean.
Look for winds to increase later morning at 10 to 15, going south-west at 20 to 25 knots this afternoon. Surf will get dirfty and choppy as the day wears on.
We have a hightide this morning at 10:28 a.m., and a low tide will be at 3:54 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:28 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 4 feet at 7 seconds in a combination of south wind swell and south-east south-east swell.
Some rideable surf in the water this morning, but we do expect choppier conditions with building short-period wind swell this afternoon in choppy, drifty conditions. We do expect building but choppy south-west wind waves to increase Thursday as a trough of low pressure builds inland, creating strong south-west winds and on/side-shore flow. This wind swell drops off but cleans up some for Friday. Swell fades out this weekend, so go surf mid-to-late week if you can.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will give way to a low pressure trough today. A surface trough of low pressure is expected to develop inland by mid week, then persist over the Southeast through late week and likely into the weekend.
It’s 79* and mostly cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 86* with rain and thunderstorms moving in this afternoon.
Water temperature is around 82*.
Sunrise is at 6:11 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:30 p.m.

Small long-board waves in the water this morning with a semi-choppy south wind swell in the water.
