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

We have all of our men’s board-shorts, hybrids and walk-shorts marked 20% off at the shop. We have a great selection. Come check them out. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is running knee to thigh high. It’s breaking right on the beach at high tide this morning. It should get better form as the tide rolls out some.

Winds are east/north-east at 5 knots, and surf zone is bumpy and semi-clean.

Look for winds from the north-east at 10 to 15 knots with choppy surf by late morning.  

We had a high tide just after sun-rise, and low tide will be at 1:22 p.m. The next high tide will be at 7:49 pm.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 10 seconds in a long-period east swell.  

Our next significant swell should materialize this weekend as a tropical low – Invest 95 – approaches Florida to our south, sending another decent sized ground swell our way starting mid-afternoon on Friday, and then building on Saturday into Sunday. The storm will likely be a named tropical storm late day, and might be something we need to keep an eye on. We should see continued swell with moderate winds from the east/north-east forecast for our marine area Sunday into Monday, causing some chop on a fading ground swell. There are also a few spots to watch in the tropics, but we’ll monitor those for two weeks out.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: 
“High pressure to the north should prevail through tonight, 
then dissipate on Friday as a front also passes to our north. 
A tropical wave currently to our southeast could bring impacts to 
our area this weekend into early next week, as it passes near the region.”

It’s 78* at the beach this morning and sunny. Look for a hot day with a high of 87* and sun today.

Water temperature is 83*.

Sunrise is at 7 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:29 p.m.

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

We have all of our men’s board-shorts, hybrids and walk-shorts marked 20% off at the shop. We have a great selection. Come check them out.  

Surf at The Washout this morning is running knee high. There is a thigh set, but it’s pretty weak. Might be OK for the longboard. It should get better form as the tide pulls out. Most waves are breaking right on the beach this morning.  

Winds are north at 5 to 10 knots, and surf zone is clean.    

Look for winds from the north-east at 10 to 15 knots with semi-choppy surf today. Winds go east late day.

We are coming off a high tide early this morning, low tide will be at 12:38 p.m. The next high tide will be at 7:08 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.3 ft at 10 seconds in a long-period east/south-east swell.  

Maybe a little wave for the long-board this morning out at Folly. Our next significant swell should materialize this weekend as a tropical low – Invest 95 – approaches Florida to our south, sending another decent sized ground swell our way. Get ready for that on Saturday. We should see continued swell with moderate winds from the east/north-east forecast for our marine area Sunday into Monday, causing some chop on a fading ground swell. Should be fun, and a lot less destruction. There are also a few spots to watch in the tropics, but we’ll monitor those for two weeks out.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: 
“High pressure to the north should prevail through late in the week. A tropical
wave or low passing to the south is expected to bring an increased chance
of rain this weekend into early next week.”

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

Surf at The Washout this morning is running knee to thigh high with perhaps a waist high set.

Winds are SSW at 10 to 15 knots, and surf is choppy this morning.

Look for winds to remain from the south today at 10 to 12 knots, with choppy surf all day.

We have a low tide at 11 a.m., and a high tide will be at 5:38 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 10 seconds in an easterly ground swell with a south wind swell 2 ft at 4 seconds.

We have choppy south/south-west wind waves on top of an easterly ground swell in the water this morning, and look for that trend to continue today. Despite the long period, waves are disorganized and it doesn’t look like a whole ton of fun, but it is rideable on a higher volume board. Our next significant swell should materialize this weekend as a tropical wave approaches to our south, sending another decent sized ground swell our way, with moderate winds from the east causing some chop on the ground swell. Get ready for that. Should be fun, and a lot less destruction. There are also a few spots to watch in the tropics, but we’ll monitor those for two weeks out.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stationary front will linger over or near the area through Tuesday then dissipate. High pressure is forecasted to build in from the north midweek. A weak tropical wave should pass to our south late in the week, bringing an increased chance of rain.”

It’s 83* at the beach this morning and partly cloudy. Look for a high of 88* with partly cloudy skies.

Water temperature has dropped some, but it’s still 81*.

Sunrise is at 6:59 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:36 p.m.
