Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sat., February 15 at 8 a.m.
New Spring 2019 Beater Boards and Odysea Boards have arrived. Come see what’s new from Catch Surf.
Waves at the Washout this morning are knee-to-thigh high. The tide is going out, which isn’t currently helping the size, but it could pick up some later today as the tide comes in.
Winds are south/south-west at 5 to 10 knots in rain showers, increasing south-west 15 knots this afternoon. Surf has chop in it, and should all day.
Low tide is at 10:57 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:58 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading a 3.3 ft. at 4 seconds in a predominantly south/south-west wind swell, with a south-east swell 2.3 ft. at 7 seconds.
We have some south wind swell in the water today with choppy conditions expected this afternoon as the tide comes in and south-west wind average 10 to 15 knots. Surf should build this afternoon in choppy conditions, averaging waist to stomach high. We see rotating, pre-frontal north-east wind swell build over-night tonight, and rotate more south-easterly on Sunday as the tide comes in late day. Small, rotating wind-swell will be the call this week as frontal systems effect our marine area thought the week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A series of frontal systems will affect the area through much of next week.”
It’s 57* and raining this morning. Expect a high of 66* and rain today.
Water temperature is around 57*.
Sunrise is around 7:01 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:04 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, February 15 at 8:30 a.m.
We have new spring inventory arriving daily, so come check that out!
Waves at the Washout this morning are very small. Maybe knee high.

The Edisto buoy is reading a 3 ft. at 5 seconds in a predominantly south wind swell, but not much showing at low tide.
Pretty darn small out there this morning, and we shouldn’t expect too much significant swell late week, but we see increasing, choppy, short-period south-west wind swell Saturday. This wind swell will average waist to stomach high with poor from and chop Saturday afternoon at the high tide. We see increasing pre-frontal south-westerly wind chop build again over night on Sunday, before easterly swell fills in Tuesday and into the heart of the work week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Several frontal systems will affect the area beginning Saturday and continuing through much of next week.”

Not getting much love from the surf this morning.

This wind swell will average waist to stomach high with poor from and chop Saturday afternoon. Look for swell building some for the south-east and remaining semi-choppy for Sunday. So there should be a few waves for the weekend.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday , February 13th at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at the Pier this morning are few and far between, but theres a knee high wave breaking right next to the pier.

Winds are NW at 10-15 knots with stronger gusts and surf is still managing to be pretty clean with a little texture.

Look for NW winds today up to 25 knots, diminishing into the evening.

Low tide was about an hour ago, high tide will be at 1:38 p.m. and low tide will be again at 7:53 p.m. The Edisto buoy is reading 4.3. at 5 sec. in dominant SW swell being push around by WNW winds.   Pretty darn small out there this morning with some chilling wind gusts as well. With a mixture of weather patterns approaching, we shouldn’t expect too much significant swell.  We’ll see winds decrease beginning tomorrow, so cleaner conditions are likely.  However there aren’t any swell indicators out there for us for the next few days.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will move offshore this morning, followed by high pressure building from the west. Dry conditions are expected to prevail through Friday. A series of storm systems are forecasted to bring various impacts to our area this weekend into early next week.

It’s 54* and mostly cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 61* with clouds today.

Water temperature is around 57*, according to un-named sources at the DNR.

Sunrise is around 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:02 p.m.
