Wednesday, July 11

Side-shore early, but clean. Semi-chop this afternoon.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee to thigh.
Traffic: Moderately busy.
Parking: Some to be found.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, July 11 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at the Washout is around knee high with a thigh set and breaking kind of close to shore as we come off of high tide.
Winds are west/south-west at 5 to 10 knots and surf is semi-clean.
Best to bring the longboard, but it is still rideable.
Look for south-west winds around 10 knots, and surf should have some side-shore bump in it this afternoon.
Tide is going out, and low tide will be at 12:45 p.m. The next high tide will be at 7:12 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 8 seconds in an easterly swell.
Most of the swell created by Hurricane Chris had a very high northerly angle on it, and so it moved right past our beaches during the early part of the work week – though there were a few small waves to be had. Tomorrow, it looks like the remnants of what was Tropical Storm Beryl will be moving into our swell window and likely pushing in some punchier south-east swell in the waists to stomach high range. Winds will be south-west as a cold front approaches Friday, so it likely won’t be super clean, but we should see a little bit of surf tomorrow with a better angle on it. This swell continues for Friday morning, before fading out for Friday afternoon and into the weekend.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will continue over the region today while Chris moves away from the North Carolina coast. A weak cold front will slowly move south through the area Thursday and Friday, before lingering nearby through late this weekend. High pressure should then return early next week.”
It is 81 and sunny at Folly this morning. Look for a high of 94* and sun today.
Water temperature is 86*.
Sunset is at 8:30 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:18 a.m.
