Blown-out, mess. Un-surfable, early.

Traffic: None.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: Tropical Storm conditions and rip currents.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, October 11 at 8:15 a.m.
The Carolina Surf Film Festival takes place Friday and Saturday nights at Tradesman Brewing Company. It is always a great event, with lots of vendors, raffles, and great surf films on the big screen. Check out carolinasurffilmfestival.com for tickets and details.
Waves at the Pier this morning are chest-to-head high with occasionally sets to a few feet over-head. We have victory-at-sea conditions; not to mention tropical storm conditions.
Winds are south at 40 to 50 knots. Drift is running up the beach at 20 knots, and there is A LOT of water moving. Surf is BLOWN OUT and un-rideable this morning.
Look for south-west winds this afternoon at 25 to 30. Hopefully it will go west at 20 very late in the day and clean up this surf, but it’s not looking like it right now.
High tide will be at 10:11 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:19 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:21 p.m.The Edisto buoy is reading 12 ft. at 8 seconds in big, medium-to-short period south-east wind swell.
Expect large, chunky, dangerous surf conditions today as Tropical Storm Michael makes its way out of Georgia and across South Carolina today. We would NOT recommend surfing today. We should expect full tropical storm conditions with waves in the head high + range with victory-at-sea conditions brought on by strong south/south-west winds. Refer to the NOAA NHC website for more details on the storm. Look for thigh high leftovers tomorrow as winds go north and weather cools off behind a cold front. Waves look small into the weekend.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Tropical Storm Michael will continue to move northeast through central Georgia and South Carolina today. Cooler and drier high pressure will then build in through the weekend before a coastal trough and cold front affect the area early to mid-next week. Refer to the latest advisory on Tropical Storm Michael issued by the National Hurricane Center.”
It’s 82* with rain this morning and high winds. Expect a high of 86* with rain and thunderstorms tapering off late afternoon.
Water temperature is 82*.
Sunset is at 6:53 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:20 a.m.
