Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, April 16 at 8 a.m.
Tons of new spring gear in now. We are STOKED and STOCKED! Come check it out.
Surf at the Washout is running waist to chest high. Maybe a bit bigger on some sets. There is a left-handed barrel to be had if you’re able.
Wind is out of the west south west at 15 to 18 knots, and surf is side-chore with and crossed up with the wind, but it looks fun, early. It’s drifty out there, up the beach – south-to-north. You’ll have to walk down the beach and float.
We see strong westerly winds at 20 to 25 knots today LIKELY beating down the surf by late afternoon. There might be a few leftovers as the tide comes in late day.
High tide will be at 8:52 a.m. Low tide will be at 2:51 pm. The next high tide is at 9:05 p.m.
The Edisto buoy reading 11.5 ft. at 7 seconds in west/south-westerly wind waves, with a high westerly angle pushing surf away from the beach.
We have leftover south-westerly swell in the water this morning with junky conditions and west/south-west winds at 15 to 20 knots. Surf gets beat down by westerly winds this afternoon and should average thigh high with a bigger set at low tide. Look for a waist high wave at the incoming late today with windy condtions. A cold front passed over night, and surf looks to be small through mid-week, before we see south-west wind chop swell Thursday. Look for another strong suck-up wind swell Sunday into Monday a week out. We’ll keep you updated.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will build in behind a cold front today and then persist through Wednesday. After a brief warmup, a dry cold front should then pass through Thursday night followed by cooler high pressure through the end of the week. Unsettled weather could return early next week.”
It is a chilly 48* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 64* with wind and sunny skies.
Water temperature is around 65*.
Sunset is at 7:50 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:450 a.m.
