Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, September 18 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at the Washout is knee high. It’s small this morning and doesn’t look inviting. At least the weather is nice.

Winds are north-east at 10 to 12 knots, and surf zone is side-shore, choppy and soft.

Look for easterly winds at 15 this afternoon with a higher gust. Surf zone will be choppy and drifty this afternoon.

We are coming off a high tide, and low tide will be at 1:18 p.m. The the next high tide will be at 7:47 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.0 ft. at 11 seconds in a long period easterly swell, most of which is passing by our beaches and moving south.   

We see increasing easterly wind swell in our forecast for early work week. It’ll likely still be small, but look for increasing high-angled wind chop to start the work week. Mid-week, swell should come more onshore from the south as a cold front approaches and swell from what is now Tropical Storm Peter begins to filter in at our beaches. Surf will likely get better mid-to-late week. But for now, just enjoy this beautiful beach weather. The fishing is good, too.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A wet weather pattern will prevail into the middle of the week. A cold front will move through the area Wednesday evening into early Thursday, followed by high pressure prevailing through the weekend.”

It’s 77* this morning and sunny with passing clouds. Look for a high of 82* with clouds this afternoon and a slight chance for a shower.

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:20 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Good morning, this is Scott with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, September 18 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at the Washout is knee-thigh high and very clean.

It looks pretty soft with the higher tide, but the water looks beautiful. I’d just recommend a longboard if you’re going out.

Winds are north-north-west at 5 knots.

Winds stay east this afternoon and get no more than 7 knots.

We have a high tide at 6:33 a.m., and a low tide at 12:32 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.0 ft. at 7 seconds in a short period east/south-east swell.  

There isn’t much of a wave out there today and it looks like there won’t be the rest of the weekend as the south-east region has been dry. There appears to be a cold front coming in and potentially developing into some swell on Friday.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A wet weather pattern will prevail this weekend into the middle of next week. A cold front should then move through during the second half of next week, followed by high pressure prevailing into next weekend.”

It’s 76* this morning and cloudy. Look for a high of 84* with sun and some clouds today.

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:23 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, September 17 at 8:30 a.m.

Our friend Gary Wilson just brought a whole bunch of boards to the shop. Come check them out while we still have some in stock.

Surf at the Washout is waist-to-stomach high and very clean. There might be a bigger set.

It is kind of closing out at the lower tide this morning, but I’d expect it to get a push as the tide comes in. There is some swell out there, but the tide is going out this morning.  

Winds are east at 5 to 8 knots.

Winds stay north this morning, then look for south-east winds increasing 10 to 12 knots late day. Surf should stay clean until later this afternoon.

We have a low tide at 11:30 a.m., and a high tide at 6:09 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell.  

There is some swell out here this morning, and surf should be building a bit when the tide comes in late morning as an area of low pressure now called Disturbance Number 2 is moving away from our swell window. We expect smaller waves this weekend. There is also Tropical Depression 1 in the Central Atlantic moving westward. It’s a long way out. But look for possible development of this system. It could be a wave maker during the middle to latter part of next week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Weak high pressure will persist across inland areas while low pressure passes well offshore through late this week. High pressure will then expand across the region this weekend into early next week, before a cold front shifts across the area during the second half of next week.”

It’s 77* this morning and cloudy. Look for a high of 82* with clouds and a 30% chance for a shower this afternoon.  

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:23 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, September 16 at 8:30 a.m.

Our friend Gary Wilson just brought a whole bunch of boards to the shop. Come check them out while we still have some in stock.

Surf at the Washout is thigh-to waist high and semi-choppy. There is a little swell out there, finally.

It is kind of closing out at the lower tide this morning, but I’d expect it to get a push as the tide comes in. There is some swell out there, but the tide is pretty low.

Winds are east at 5 to 8 knots.

Look for east winds increasing 10 to 12 knots late day. We see a bumpy, semi-choppy surf zone all day.

We have a low tide at 10:30 a.m., and a high tide at 5:13 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 8 seconds in a medium period south/south-east swell. This lazy, medium period swell should continue this afternoon.   

Surf should be building a bit when the tide comes in late morning as an area of low pressure now called Disturbance Number 2 is developing east of our waters. It might not push up much, but it should make for rideable waves over through the afternoon. There is also what is now called Tropical Depression 1 coming off the coast of Africa and moving westward. It’s a long way out. But look for possible development of this system. It could be a wave maker during the middle to latter part of next week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Weak high pressure will prevail inland while low pressure passes well offshore through late week. High pressure is expected to expand into the region this weekend into early next week.”

It’s 80* this morning and partly cloudy. Look for a high of 82* with clouds and a 30% chance for a shower this afternoon.  

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:24 p.m.
