Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 8:30 a.m.  

Colder weather swell is coming this weekend, and we have a great selection of booties, hoods and gloves out on the floor, so come get your cold-water gear while the selection is still good.

Surf at Folly this morning is thigh high with waist high sets in a high-angled north-east wind swell.

Winds are north at 20 to 25 knots. There is a LOT of current, north-to-south down the beach.  

Look for north winds today at 20 to 30 knots, early. Diminishing to 15 knots later this afternoon. We see current and building north/north-east wind swell all day.

We just came off a high tide. Low tide will be at 2:12 p.m. The next high tide will be at 8:15 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 8 ft. at 8 seconds in a north-east wind swell.

We expect strong north winds mid-week, rotating north-east by Thursday. We have  lots of north/north-east wind swell in the water. This swell will again pass our shores and head south of our waters, with north-east wind swell starting to wrap in Thursday afternoon. For the weekend, things get interesting as a low-pressure system looks to develop just north of our coast-line Saturday and Sunday. We could see ground-swell this weekend with strong north winds keeping bigger surf side-shore and drifty. Better have some neoprene, as it will be a cold, raw and rainy swell event this weekend.  

It is cold as hell out here at the beach. It’s 35* with a wind chill of 25*.  Look for a high of only 50* today with sun.

Water temperature is dropping rapidly. It’s 64*.

Sunrise is at 6:47 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:19 p.m.      

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

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

Cold weather swell is coming this weekend, and we have a great selection of booties, hoods and gloves out on the floor, so come get your cold water gear while the selection is still good.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee high with an occ. thigh high wave. Waves are breaking right on the beach at the morning’s high tide.

Winds are south/south-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is semi-choppy.  Not looking too good this morning.

Look for winds to switch west at 15 late morning, then north-west after a cold front passage, late. Surf should be beat down later today by the strong off-shore winds.  

We just came off a high tide. Low tide will be at 1:31 pm. The next high tide will be at 7:37 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.3 ft. at 9 seconds in medium period east/south-east swell.

Surf around Folly this morning is knee to thigh high and semi-choppy. If you want to surf with light winds, this might be the last morning to do it for a while. We expect strong north winds mid-week, rotating north-east by Thursday. A strong cold front passage today bringing lots of north/north-east wind swell. This will again pass our shores and head south of our waters, with north-east wind swell starting to wrap in Thursday afternoon. For the weekend, things get interesting as a low-pressure system looks to develop off our coast Saturday and Sunday. We could see ground-swell this weekend with strong north winds keeping bigger, side-shore and drifty. Better have some neoprene, as it will be a cold, raw and rainy swell event this weekend.  

There is a gale warning in effect for Folly Beach late this afternoon. It is mostly cloudy this morning with some sun behind the clouds and it’s 66*. Look for rain developing later today with a high of 72*.

Water temperature is slowly dropping, now 68*.

Ground-swell next weekend? We will keep you posted as always.
