Good morning, this is  Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, July 9 at 8:30 a.m.

Mandatory Mask Ordinance enacted by Folly Beach City Council in late June. You must wear a mask in Ocean Surf Shop. Thank you for your cooperation, and for supporting our small, local business.

We have a new shipment of Odysea and Catch Surf soft-boards that arrived and they are going fast. Come check them out.

Surf at The Washout is knee-high. There is a rare thigh set. It’s best for the long-board this morning.

Winds are light from the west/north-west, and conditions are nice and clean.     

Winds should increase later today, eventually going south-west at 5 to 10 knots this afternoon. Look for bumpy conditions for afternoon, with cleaner conditions for high-tide this morning.

We have a high tide at 11:43 a.m. Low tide follows at 5:41 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2 feet at 8 seconds in an east/south-east swell.

Surf is looking to fall off some for Friday,  but we then see increasing, choppy south-west wind swell for the weekend as a trough of low pressure lingers in our marine area. This should carry into the work week. It’ll be choppy and drifty, but we should see some localized south/south-west wind-swell later Saturday into Sunday.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will linger over the area through early next week. High pressure is expected to return towards the middle of next week.”

It’s 78* and mostly cloudy at the beach this morning. Look for a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms this afternoon with a high of 86*.

Water temperature is way up to 84*.  

Sunrise is at 6:19 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:30 p.m.

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

We have a new shipment of Odysea and Catch Surf soft-boards that arrived and they are going fast. Come check them out.

Surf at The Washout is knee-high. There is an occasionally thigh set. It’s best for the long-board this morning.

Winds are light from the west/south-west, and conditions are clean.     

Winds should increase later today, eventually going south-west at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon. Look for choppier conditions for afternoon, with cleaner conditions for high-tide this morning.

We have a high tide at 11:27 a.m. Low tide follows at 4:55 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.5 feet at 8 seconds in an east/south-east swell.

Mid-week we should begin to see small signs of life in the surf zone. Look for an increase in a fresh, small, localized south wind-swell compliments of a low pressure system slowly moving across and north-east of our beaches. This should build surf into the thigh-to-waist high range Thursday and into the end of the work week as a low pressure pulls past our marine area late week. We then see increasing, choppy south-west wind swell for the weekend as a trough of low pressure ligers in our marine area.   

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “An area of low pressure will slowly drift toward the Carolina coast today, before lifting northeast tonight and Thursday. A trough of low pressure will then linger over the area through early next week.”

It’s 78* and partly-to-mostly cloudy at the beach this morning. Look for rain on-and-off this afternoon with a high of 83*.

Water temperature is way up to 84*.  

Sunrise is at 6:18 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:30 p.m.

We have a new shipment of Odysea and Catch Surf soft-boards that arrived on over the weekend. Come check them out.

Surf at The Washout is knee-high. There is an occasionally thigh set. It’s best for the long-board this morning, as it’s soft at the higher tide, but there’s a little trade wind wave if you want to get wet.

Winds are light from the north-west, and conditions are nice and clean.     

Winds should increase later today, eventually going south at 10 to 15 knots by late day. Look for choppier conditions for afternoon, with cleaner conditions for high-tide this morning.

Mid-week we should begin to see signs of life in a fresh, small, localized south wind-swell compliments of a low pressure system slowly moving out of the Gulf and off-shore of our beaches. This should build surf into the thigh-to-waist high range Wednesday and into the end of the work week as a low pressure pulls past our marine area late week. We then see increasing, choppy south-west wind swell for the weekend.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “An area of low pressure will slowly move across the Southeast through the middle of the week, before lifting north late week into the weekend. A stationary front will then linger in the vicinity early next week.”

It’s 76* and raining at the beach this morning. Look for rain today and a high of 83*.

Water temperature is way up to 85*.  

Sunrise is at 6:17 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:30 p.m.

Looking ahead small typical summer conditions prevail to start the beginning of the work week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stationary front will linger over the region through tonight. An area of low pressure is then expected to develop and slowly move across the Southeast during the middle part of the week, before lifting north late week into the weekend.”

It’s 79* and cloudy this morning. Look for a hot, humid day with a high of 83*. There is a chance of showers off-and-on, today.
