Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, May 14 at 7:30 a.m.   

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-waist high, with rare occasional larger sets. Looks pretty clean this morning, accompanied by a beautiful offshore/side-shore wind holding the wave form up nicely.

Winds are north/north-east at 5-10 knots, and surf zone is glassy. Waves average in the waist high range, with a slight bit of weakness due to this morning’s incoming high tide.

Look for winds to pick up from the east, north-east late day at 10-15 knots. Surf-zone should stay semi-glassy today and increase in size, but expect the chop to roll through as the wind increases in speed.

We have a high tide at 10:16 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:12 p.m.

Look for some solid rides out in the lineup today. This east/north-east wind development proposes some good conditions as the day goes on with the hope for larger gems as the tide fills in this late morning. The forecast should maintain some size as the week progresses, with potential for some more swell mid-week. Keep an eye on the cams for the tide push today, as it should hopefully punch into the waist-chest high range more consistently. We will keep you posted as the forecast continues to develop.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “High pressure will continue building into the region today and will remain the primary weather feature into the middle of next week.”

This morning it is sunny and a chilly 61*. Look for sun to remain and a high of 72* this afternoon.

Water temperature is up to around 72*.

Sunrise is at 6:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:11 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Good morning, this is Scott with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, May 13 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at The Washout this morning is thigh-to-waist high. Looks pretty clean this morning with a couple of fun ones.

Winds are north/north-north-east at 15 knots, and surf zone is clean.

Look for winds to die down around 9:00 a.m.

We have a high tide at 9:43 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:35 p.m. The next high tide will be tonight late at 9:56 p.m.

Look for smaller a few fun waves in the morning with the clean conditions. The conditions will weaken throughout the day especially when the lower tide drains it out. Best bet today is a morning log or fish session.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A high pressure will build into the area today and persist through early next week.”

This morning it is overcast and 52*. It’s a little bit chilly out this morning, but look for clear skies and a temperature in the high 60’s this afternoon.

Water temperature is up to around 74*.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:11 p.m.

Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, May 12 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at The Washout this morning is ankle-to-knee high. Looks like a lot of choppy, side-shore, east wind swell, with some slight form still holding on the lines.

Winds are east/north-east at 5-10 knots, and surf zone is choppy and coming in at an angle at the high tide. There isn’t much of a wave out there, unless you just want to get wet and mess around.

Look for winds to pick up from the north-east late day at 10-15 knots. Surf-zone should stay choppy today.

We have a high tide at 9:08 a.m., and low tide will be at 2:59 p.m. The next high tide will be tonight late at 9:22 p.m.

Look for smaller choppier surf this afternoon. Today we see a stalled frontal boundary offshore to our south, and a series of low pressure systems is forecasted to advance along the front. With high pressure to the north, we can expect a pretty big east/north-east blow. This should increase drifty, high-angled east/north-east swell into our beaches Thursday through Saturday. With waves averaging waist high and very drifty for the period. It could be some fun if you’re into choppier ramps.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A cold front will advance through the area today, then becoming nearly stationary near the northern shore of the Gulf of Mexico tonight. A series of low pressure areas will track along the stationary front until late week. High pressure will expand into the region this weekend into early next week.”

This morning it is overcast and 72*. Look for thunderstorms advancing through the area this afternoon with increasing percent change of rain throughout the day.

Water temperature is up to around 73*.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, May 11 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high. Maybe slightly larger. Looks like a lot of the choppy, south wind swell we had yesterday faded out pretty quickly overnight.

Winds are west/north-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is very clean and weaker at the high tide. There is a decent longboard glide if you want to get wet.  

Look for winds to pick up from the south-east late day at 10 knots. Surf-zone should stay fairly clean today.

We have a high tide at report time, and low tide will be at 2:19 p.m. The next high tide will be at 8:42 p.m.

Look for smaller surf this afternoon into tomorrow. Wednesday (tomorrow) afternoon, we see a stalled frontal boundary offshore to our south, and a series of low pressure systems is forecast to advance along the front. With high pressure to the north, we can expect a pretty big east/north-east blow. This should increase drifty, high-angled east/north-east swell into our beaches Thursday through Saturday. With waves averaging waist high and very drifty for the period.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A cold front will advance into the area today then will gradually settle south of the area and stall Wednesday. A series of low pressure areas will track along the stationary front until late week. High pressure will expand into the region this weekend into early next week.”

This morning it is sunny and 73*. Look for a high of 80* with thunderstorms advancing through the area this afternoon.

Water temperature is up to around 73*.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:09 p.m.
