Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, June 15 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is knee-high this morning. Maybe slightly bigger. It’s pretty small.

Winds are west/south-west – side-shore – at 10 knots, and surf is choppy and weak.

Look for south-west winds at 15 to 20 this afternoon. Surf will get choppy and drifty in a building, small south-west wind swell.  

We have a high tide at noon today, and a low tide will be at 5:55 p.m.

We see choppy south-west wind swell pick up this afternoon as south-west winds pick up ahead of a cold front later today. This wind-swell cleans up for Wednesday morning and drops off Wednesday afternoon. Tropical storm Bill formed overnight and is racing away to our north-east. There is also the possibility of a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico that could affect our surf Sunday into Monday in a southerly wind-chop swell. Other than that, surf looks fairly small late week, so get some mid-week if you can.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A cold front sweep across the region late this afternoon and evening. High pressure will build across the Southeast U.S on Wednesday and will remain through Friday. Unsettled weather is expected this weekend into early next week.”

It’s 81* and sunny at the beach. Look for a high of 87* and a 50% chance of a thunderstorm as this frontal system passes by our marine area.  

Water temperature is around 80*.

Sunrise is at 6:11 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:29 p.m.

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

Surf at Folly is knee-to-thigh high this morning. It looks like the line is holding up for a long board glide.

Winds are north/north-west at around 5 knots, and the surf zone is clean at the moment. Best for the longboard if you want to get wet.

Look for light and variable winds today as a low pressure pulls away from our marine area.

We have a high tide at 11:15 a.m., and a low tide will be at 5:06 p.m. Tide will be coming in until well after dark tonight.

Surf is rideable this morning and is OK on a bigger board. Look for smaller surf as the tide drops out later this afternoon, with variable winds. There is a low forming just off-shore that could show tropical storm characteristics, but it’ll be out of our swell window over the next day or so. We see choppy south-west wind swell pick up Tuesday. This cleans up for Wednesday morning and drops off Wednesday afternoon. Surf looks pretty small late week, so get some mid-week if you can.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “Low pressure will move away from the region today. A cold front will approach the region by the middle of the week.”

It’s 75* and cloudy at the beach this morning. Look for a high of 82* today with partly to mostly cloudy skies all day.

Water temperature is around 80*.

Sunrise is at 6:11 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:29 p.m.

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

We have new Jason Rowells Epoxy Gordo models that just arrived. It’s the perfect mid-length for Folly. Come check them out.

Surf at Folly is knee-to-thigh high this morning. It looks like the line is holding up for a bigger board.

Winds are west-north-west at around 5 knots, and the surf zone is pretty clean at the moment. Best for the longboard if you want to get a glide in.

Winds will peak up this afternoon around 12p.m. transitioning to north-north-east.

We have a high tide at 10:30 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:28 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:48 p.m.

Surf is rideable and could be fun on a bigger board. As the wind picks up and changes direction look for choppier waters so get out in the morning if you can. Be cautious of all the rain getting onto the island and other than that there isn’t too much great surf in our forecast for the day.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “An area of low pressure will develop just off the South Carolina coast today and will depart to the northeast tonight. A cold front could approach the region by the middle of next week.”

Water temperature is around 80*.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday June 12 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is knee-to-thigh high this morning. There is an inconsistent slightly larger set.

Winds are west at around 10 knots, and surf zone is side-shore, but fairly clean. Best for the longboard if you want to get a glide in.

Winds continue generally from the west at 10 knots today as a weak cold front drops into the area this afternoon, brining thunderstorms and some variable winds.

We have a high tide at 10 p.m., and a low tide will be at 3:46 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:02 p.m.

Surf is rideable but not great this morning. We see side-shore westerly winds today and semi-clean conditions with surf averaging thigh high on the lower tide late afternoon. Winds rotate more north-east after the frontal passage for Sunday, and surf will drop off to the knee high range to start the work week. We see surf pick up again in another choppy south-west wind Tuesday into Wednesday as another frontal boundary approaches our marine area.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A weak cold front will drop in from the north late today. Then another front could approach the region by the middle of next week.

It’s 79* and sunny at the beach. Look for a high of 84* with a good chance for thunderstorms and showers on-and-off today.

Water temperature is around 80*.

Sunrise is at 6:11 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:28 p.m.
