Good Morning. This is J. with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, Feb. 27 at 8:30 a.m.
We want to thank everyone who participated in the Icebox Open. Congrats to our first place winners: Tristan Thompson of Jax Beach Fla. took the mens division, local girl Kristin Tanner won the women’s and Folly Beach grom Griffin Jackson won the grom division.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft. at 9 secs in east South east wind swell.
Surf looks small today, averaging thigh high, with bumpy conditions. High pressure sets up to our north-east early week, and we see increasing trade Bermuda-high trade-wind swell Tuesday into the middle of your work week. Looks like more fun surf is on tap mid-week, so we have that to look forward to.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: HIGH PRESSURE WILL PUSH OFF THE EASTERN SEABOARD TODAY…WITH A WEAK COASTAL TROUGH TO DEVELOP NEARBY TONIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE ATLANTIC THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. A COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY…FOLLOWED BY MORE HIGH
PRESSURE FOR THE END OF THE WEEK.
Its 60* and sunny this morning. Expect a high of 70* and sun today.

WEEKLY WAVE FORECAST
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “WEAK LOW PRESSURE WILL PASS TO THE SOUTH INTO THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE REGION EARLY SATURDAY, FOLLOWED BY COOLER HIGH PRESSURE THROUGH MONDAY. THE HIGH WILL THEN SHIFT OFFSHORE BRINGING UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES BACK TO THE AREA FOR MID WEEK.”
There is some potential for fun sized surf Thursday (Feb. 23) through Saturday (Feb. 25) as south swell is forecast to pick up for our offshore waters. A low passes across the southern Florida peninsula moving north-east and bringing sizable swell. High pressure moves to our north, and the pressure gradient between the low to our south and high to our north creates a strong pressure gradient, keeping east winds in the forecast, and plenty of wind-swell/ground swell combo in the water to end the work week. This continues into Saturday as south-west winds pick up, and surf gets a bit choppy and drifty late in the day. Late Saturday, look for a cold front to move off-shore, and we will see strong off-shore winds and dropping surf. There should be some moderate easterly winds for the period, so look for waist to chest high semi-choppy/choppy surf for the next several days. The beginning of your next work week looks small, but then we see high pressure move off the mid-Atlantic coast – a Bermuda high pressure – during the middle part of next week. This should bring warm weather and another south wind swell around Wed. March 1. We WILL hold the Icebox Open on Saturday (Feb. 25), so there you go! We’ll keep you updated.
