Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, August 14 at 8:30 a.m.  

Gary Wilson, Album and Jason Rowells boards arrived this week. Come check them out while we still have a good selection.

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  

Mandatory mask ordinance is in effect for Folly.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee- high.

Winds are light from the west/north-west. Surf-zone is clean.

Look for winds from the south this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots knots adding surface chop to small surf later today.

Low tide is at 10:13 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:47 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is only reading 3.9 ft. at 7 seconds in a short-period, south-west wind swell.

High pressure is east of our general marine area. Low pressure lingers inland. Looks like a little bit of choppy, short-period, south/south-west wind waves on-and-off for Saturday and Sunday. Nothing to write home about, but some wind-chop to ride if you are into it. Tropical Storm Josephine is now in the western Atlantic. It’ll likely start showing some swell late Monday into-middle of next week. Nothing too big, but might be a few fun ones We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will persist inland, while high pressure remains over the Atlantic through Saturday. A weak cold front will then pass through the area Sunday into Sunday night. A trough will redevelop over the region during the middle of next week.”

It’s 878* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 88* and a 30% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Water temperature is 86*.  

Sunrise is at 6:42 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:03 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee-high.

Winds are light from the west. Surf-zone is clean.

Look for winds from the south this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots knots adding surface chop to small surf later today.

Low tide is at 9:17 a.m. and high tide will be at 3:52 p.m. The next low tide at 10:17 pm.

The Edisto Buoy is only reading 1 feet at 10 seconds in a long period east/south-east swell with a short-period south/south-west wind swell component 3 ft at 4 seconds.

Looks like we’ll see small surf again today. High pressure is right over our general marine area. High pressure shifts further east and low pressure lingers inland. Looks like a little bit of short period south/south-west wind waves on-and-off for the remainder of the work week, and into the weekend. Nothing to write home about. Invest 95L is a low in the Central Atlantic. It looks to become Tropical Storm Josephine.  It’s something to keep an eye on into early next week, but would likely be early-to-middle of next week for any long-period swell to show. We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will persist inland, while high pressure remains over the Atlantic through late week. A weak cold front will approach the region over the weekend and linger in the vicinity into the middle of next week.”

It’s 80* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 85* and a 40% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

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

We Have a few new Torq longboards and fun-boards that just arrived. Get them while we still have a few in stock.

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  Construction taking place to build sea-wall at The Washout, too.

Surf at Folly this morning is flat and unrideable.

Winds are light and variable with high clouds off-shore. Surf is clean this morning.

Look for winds from the south this afternoon at 5 to 10 knots adding a little more texture later today.

We are coming off a low tide at 7:30 a.m., ad high tide will be at 2 p.m. The next low tide will be at 8:20 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is only reading 1 feet at 10 seconds in long period easterly swell. There is a small, short period south-west wind swell component.  

We see small-flat surf to begin our work week. High pressure is right over our general marine area. High pressure shifts further east and looks to produce a small trade swell mid-week producing a thigh-to-waist high wave. Nothing to get to hyped about but something to surf. Invest 95L is a low in the Central Atlantic. It’s something to keep an eye on into next weekend, but it’s not looking so promising as of now.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “The region will remain positioned between Atlantic high pressure well to the east and an inland area of broad low pressure. A weak front could approach the area over the weekend and linger in the vicinity into early next week.”

It’s 77* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 85* and a 50% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Water temperature is up to 87*.
