Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, September 20 at 8:30 a.m.   

We have tons of wetsuit tops, jackets and spring-suits for men and women. Come on by and pick one up as the morning air temperatures is starting to cool off some.  

Sea and Sand Festival will be held tomorrow on Folly Beach, so get here to surf early, or be stuck in traffic.     

Surf at The Washout this morning is in the thigh to waist high range with a stomach high set. It is clean, with a north wind at 10 knots. Waves should improve with the incoming tide.

Look for north-east winds – more on-shore – this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots, adding some chop and drift to smaller ground swell surf.  

Tide is coming in this morning. We have a high tide at 12:22 p.m., and a low tide will be at 6:50 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 6.6 ft. at 13 seconds in a long-period east/south-east ground swell.   

Surf at the Washout is running thigh to waist high with a bigger set and cleaner conditions this morning. Looks fun for the high-volume board. Look for some chop and drift this afternoon as winds come north-east. Surf fades a bit Saturday but will clean up some with lighter winds expected for the weekend. Smaller surf is expected Sunday, but still likely still a rideable wave late in the weekend. Tropical Storm Jerry is in the Central Atlantic neat the Leeward Islands. Jerry should become a hurricane by Friday, and we should begin to see ground swell from Jerry late Sunday into Monday of next week. This swell should be more organized/longer-period swell, but likely won’t be as big as we have seen from Dorian and Humberto, but GOOD swell none-the-less and – likely – less wind. More waves on the way. And a hurricane season for the record books. There’s still a few systems prowling behind Jerry. We’ll keep you updated.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: 
“High pressure will prevail into early next week. 
A weak cold front could push into the area Monday night and linger through mid-week before dissipating. 
Temperatures will be near to above normal through the period.”

We have nice weather this morning. It’s 66* and sunny. Look for a high of 80* and sun today.

Water temperature is 80*.

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:18 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, September 17 at 8:30 a.m.      

Surf at The Washout this morning is waist to stomach high with a rare chest high set in an easterly ground swell. It is super soft at the morning’s high tide at The Washout.

Winds are north at 10 knots with clean waves with a slight drift from north to south, down the beach. It’s smaller than yesterday, and a longboard would be a really fun choice, early.  

Look for north-east winds to pick up this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots, adding some chop to a continued smaller ground swell.

We have a high tide at 10:21 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:33 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:42 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 6.2 ft. at 9 seconds in an east south-east ground-swell and an easterly wind swell combination.  

Surf at the Washout is running waist to stomach in an easterly ground swell courtesy of Hurricane Humberto. North-east winds this afternoon could add some chop to the surf, but likely not as much wind as we have seen. Look for the swell to continue to pulse as Humberto swings north-east of our coast, then out to sea. Surf fades a bit into Wednesday, but it’ll likely still ridable. Long range also has the eastern Atlantic firing up as well. Lots to watch over the course of the next 8 days.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Hurricane
Humberto will continue to move away from the coast through mid week. 
A cold front will advance through the area Wednesday, 
followed by high pressure into early next week.”

It’s 73* at the beach this morning and sunny. Look for a hot day with a high of 89* and sun.

Water temperature is 83*.

Sunrise is at 7:03 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:24 p.m.
