Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, April 10 at 8:30 a.m.
New The new Stewart Ripster long-boards are in the shop, so come check them out. We also have spring-suits and jackets, so get out of the full-suit and start rippppping.
Surf at the Washout (where we first checked) is knee to thigh high with a waist set. Surf at the pier (where we took pictures) is knee to thigh high and looks fun for the log session.
Winds are very light and variable this morning, and surf is clean.
We expect increasing north-east winds today at 15 to 20 this afternoon, and we’ll have choppy, drifty conditions by late afternoon.
Tide is coming in, and high tide will be at noon. Low tide will be at 6:09 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 7 seconds in a medium-period, south-east swell.
Surf looks fairly small on the incoming tide, with clean conditions until mid-to-late morning. We see increasingly strong north-east winds this afternoon as high pressure sets up, and low pressure moves off of our coast today. These winds rotate easterly tomorrow and we see choppy, drifty easterly wind swell for Thursday. Friday calls for increasing south wind swell surf in the chest high range with on-shore winds but fun conditions and less drift. This south swell should continue into Saturday with cleaner conditions. South swell fades Sunday but still plenty rideable on the high volume stick. Low pressure affects our marine area again on Monday of next week, so there is plenty of south wind swell in the forecast Friday thought Monday, with easterly wind chop for tomorrow, so it’s a really good time to go surf.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Low pressure will move offshore today. High pressure will then prevail through Thursday night. A cold front will approach the region Friday, then will stall north of the area and lift north as a warm front this weekend. A stronger cold front is expected to advance through the region Sunday night and Monday followed by high pressure through the middle of next week.”
It’s 65* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 76* today with sun behind clouds and a slight chance of showers.
Water temperature is around 63*. Sunrise is around 6:57 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:44 p.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, April 9 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at the Washout is thigh-to-waist high with a stomach high set. Maybe slightly bigger.
Winds are very light from the south-west at 5 knots, and surf is bumpy, with clean faces. Look for south-west winds at 10 to 15 this afternoon, adding some bump to building south-wind swell.
High tide is this morning at 11:14 a.m., and low tide will be at 5:19 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 4.9 ft. at 7 seconds in a medium period south/south-east wind swell. There is some south-swell at the buoy, and there should be some surf today.
We see building south wind-swell today with choppy conditions this afternoon. Looking ahead into the work week, we see a low depart off our coast tonight, and this should result in a slight increase in choppy south swell today. Look for the surf to drop off late tomorrow afternoon, before we see a cold front pass through late Thursday into Friday, bringing in another quick shot of south wind-swell. So, we have some rideable surf in the forecast this week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A storm system will affect the area into tonight before shifting further offshore Wednesday. High pressure will then prevail until a cold front pushes into the region Friday. The front will stall over or just north of the area then will lift north as a warm front by Sunday. A cold front will advance through the region Sunday night and Monday, followed by high pressure through the middle of next week.”
It’s 68* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 76* today with thunderstorms possible.
Water temperature is around 63*.
Sunrise is around 6:57 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:44 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, April 8 at 8:30 a.m.
We have LOTS of new spring merchandise at the shop, so come on by and see what’s new for spring. We also have spring suits and wet-suit jackets as the water temperature should rise in the next few weeks.
Surf at the Washout is ankle to knee and weak overall. It is VERY foggy this morning, and it’s hard to see anything.
Winds are very light from the south, and surf is clean. Winds increase from the south all day, building 15 to 20 this afternoon and chopping up the surf.
High tide is this morning at 10:35 a.m. and low tide will be at 4:32 p.m. The next high tide will be at 10:46 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 8 seconds in a medium period east swell with a shorter south wind swell mixed in.
We see building south wind-swell late afternoon with choppy conditions this afternoon. Looking ahead into the work week, we see a low depart off our coast on Tuesday this should result in a slight increase in choppy SE swell for Tuesday. Look for the surf to drop off mid-week before we see a cold front pass through late week bringing in another quick shot of south wind-swell. So, we have some rideable surf in the forecast this week, but nothing special.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A low pressure system will approach from the west today and tonight, then cross the area Tuesday into Tuesday night. High pressure will return for mid to late week. A weakening cold front will push into the region early in the weekend, before another storm system impacts the area early next week.”
It’s 66* with dense fog. Look for fog today with clouds this afternoon with a high temp of 74*.
Water temperature is around 63*.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, April 7th at 8:30 a.m.

We have LOTS of new spring merchandise at the shop, so come on by and see what’s new for spring. We also have spring suits and wet-suit jackets as the water temperature should rise in the next few weeks.

Surf at the Washout is knee-thigh high and weak overall but rideable for the high volume sticks.

High tide is this morning at 9:59 a.m. and low tide will be at 4:02 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 8 seconds in a shorter period east wind swell.

Surf has dropped off some running in the thigh high range this Sunday morning not looking to inviting overall. It is still rideable but don’t expect much. Looking ahead into the work week, we see a low depart off our coast on Tuesday this should result in a slight increase in SE swell for Tuesday. Look for the surf to drop off mid-week before we see a cold front pass through late week bringing in a quick shot of south wind-swell. So we have some surf in the forecast but nothing to get to excited about.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Weak high pressure will develop offshore today. A low pressure system will impact the region early this week. High pressure will then prevail before a cold front crosses the area late week. High pressure will return next weekend.”
