Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, Nov. 9th at 8:30 a.m.  

It’s getting colder, and we have lots of jackets and flannels from all of your favorite surf brands. We also 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 The Pier this morning is in the waist high range with an occ. stomach high wave.

Winds are N at 15 knots with gusts up to 20 knots. Faces are clean this morning, but we do see sideshore conditions with that northerly chill and textured conditions.

Look for winds to decrease throughout the day, hovering in the 10-15 knot range with gusts up to 20 knots.

We have a low tide at 11:27 a.m., and a high tide will be at 5:40 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 7.2 ft. at 7 seconds in a short period NNE/ENE wind/swell combo, most of which is passing by our beaches to locations south of our waters.

We see an obvious cold front this morning as air temperatures have dropped significantly.  There is swell in the water, but you will be dealing with fairly strong winds and of course that high-angled swell direction. We see high pressure move back into the area early next week with fluctuations as cold fronts and and various pressure systems move through.  Look for pockets of surf as low pressure moves in next weekend. We expect the water temperature to continue dropping, so come see us to get bundled up for winter.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail into early next week. A cold front will pass through the area Tuesday, before high pressure returns and prevails through Thursday. A low pressure system could the impact the region next weekend.”

It’s 45* and sunny this morning. Look for a nice day and a high of 59*.

Water temperature is slowly dropping, now 69*.

Sunrise is at 6:42 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:23 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 Friday, Nov. 8th at 8:30 a.m.  

It’s getting colder, and we have lots of jackets and flannels from all of your favorite surf brands. We also 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 The Washout this morning is averaging knee high. It’s getting beat down by strong north winds.   

Winds are north at 20 to 22 knots, and surf is side-shore and fairly clean, with plenty of drift north-to-south, down the beach.  

Look for winds to continue north at 15 to 20, with similar conditions all day.

We have a low tide at 10:41 a.m., and a high tide will be at 4:57 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.2 ft. at 6 seconds in a short period north/north-east wind swell, most of which is passing by our beaches to locations south of our waters.

A strong cold front overnight has brought northerly winds which should continue into the weekend, when we see strong, high angled north swell and strong north winds for Saturday, fading on Sunday. Hopefully some of this north swell will wrap more in our direction for Saturday, but it will mostly push swell south to Florida and Puerto Rico. There will likey be some waves around this weekend, It’s just not the best swell angle for Folly Beach, as is usually the case with a strong north/north-east wind.

It’s 59* and cloudy with showers this morning. Look for a nice day with sun behind clouds and a high of 60*.

Water temperature is slowly dropping, now 69*, dude.

Sunrise is at 6:42 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:23 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, Nov. 7th at 8:30 a.m.  

Surf at The Washout this morning is averaging knee-to-thigh high.  

Winds are north at 10 to 12 knots, and surf is side-shore and fairly clean, with some drift north-to-south, down the beach.  It should pick up a bit late morning.

Look for winds to rotate more north-east, then south-easterly late this afternoon at 10 knots. This should add some bump in the surf zone.

Low tide will be at 9:52 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:12 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.3 ft. at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell with a fresh, increasing short-period east/north-east wind swell, 4.9 ft. at 7 seconds.

We have high angled east wind swell in the water. It’s not very big, but could be rideable on the high-volume board as the tide comes in early afternoon. A strong cold front brings northerly winds rotating more north-east Friday and into the weekend, when we see strong, high angled north-east swell and north-east winds for Saturday. This north-east wind swell begins to fade on Sunday. Looks like some waves around this weekend, just not the best swell angle for Folly Beach, as is usually the case with a strong north/north-east wind.

It’s 63* and cloudy this morning. Look for a nice day with sun behind clouds and a high of 76*.

Water temperature is slowly dropping, now 71*.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 8:30 a.m.  

Surf at the Pier this morning is averaging knee high at low tide, and looks like the little swell we had yesterday has faded.

Winds are north/north-east at 10 to 15 and conditions are side-shore and fairly clean with a moderate current down the beach.  

Look for winds to rotate more north-easterly this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots with a gust to 20.

After a low tide at 9 a.m., we have a high tide at 3:24 p.m. The next low tide at 9:31 pm.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 1.6 ft. at 7 seconds in a medium period south-east swell with a fresh, increasing short-period north-east wind swell, 3 ft. at 3 seconds.

We see increasing, high-angled north-east wind swell building some this afternoon with drifty, semi-choppy conditions as winds rotate north-east. This north-east wind swell should build some for Thursday. A strong cold front brings northerly winds rotating more north-east Friday and into the weekend, when we see strong, high angled north-east swell and north-east winds for the period. Looks like some waves around this weekend, just not the best swell angle for Folly Beach, as is usually the case with a strong north/north-east wind.

It’s 66* and cloudy this morning. Look for a nice day with sun behind clouds and a high of 72*.
