Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop report and forecast for Friday, February 16, 2024 at 8:30 a.m.  

Our 4/3 wetsuits are on sale. It’s still 4/3 weather, and you’ll need one when it gets cold next year, and we still have a good selection of O’Neill Technobutter 4/3 suits in the shop. Come check them out.

Surf is pretty much flat to knee high out here at Folly up and down the beach. Maybe it’ll get a little push with the tide, but it’s not great.

Winds are north/north-east are right now at 5 to 8 knots, and surf is clean. Look for light winds from the south today at 5 to 10 knots, and it should be a great day at the beach, just no surf.

We just had a low tide, and we have a high tide at 1:09 p.m. The next low tide is at 7:10 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is reading 3 foot at 5 seconds in a short-period south/south-west wind swell.

Look for smaller surf once again today. We see increasing westerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front on Saturday, and this will chop up the surf-zone as side-shore winds increase 15-to-20 knots up the beach before winds go off-shore from the north-west after the cold front passage. It’s not looking like the surf will build much over the weekend. Best chance might be Monday afternoon into Tuesday as high pressure sets up just to our north and low pressure to our south. This should bring some on-shore flow from the east/north-east. Hopefully some surf sneaks into our beaches without too      much north-east angle in it. Florida might be the call once again early/middle of next week, but there could be some wind down there, too.

Water temp is around 59*.

The NOAA Marine Forecast for our waters calls for: “A cold front will move through Saturday, then high pressure will build in through much of next week.”

It’s 53* and cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 60* and clouds this afternoon.

Sunrise is 7:02 a.m., Sunset 6:04 p.m.

Good morning, this is Evan with your Ocean Surf Shop report and forecast for February 15, 2024.

Not a ton going on today as far as the surf.  From the pier to The Washout.

Winds are West at around 5 knots increasing to 10 knots from the south this afternoon. Today should be another nice beach day too.

We have a high tide at 12:11 p.m. Low tide will be at 6:13 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 foot at 11.4 seconds in a long period east-north-east ground swell.

Look for smaller surf today and tomorrow. This trend lasts through the weekend, as of now. Looking like a possible low pressure system starting to form off of our coast early next week, but it’s early. We’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, enjoy this nice weather.

Water temp is around 59*.

The NOAA Marine Forecast for our waters calls for: “High pressure will prevail into late week, before a cold front moves through on Saturday. High pressure will return early next week.”

It’s 56* and sunny with light winds. Look for a nice day with a high of 62*, light winds and sun.

Sunrise is 7:02 a.m., Sunset 6:04 p.m.

That’s all from us at Ocean Surf Shop. We’ll check back tomorrow.

Good morning this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop report and forecast for Valentines Day, 2024. Who loves ‘ya, baby?  

Get your mom some flowers, your grandma a card and don’t give your significant other, The Jack. Because the surf isn’t giving us any love.

It’s flat as flat as you’re middle school rap game out there today. From the pier to The Washout.

Winds are north at around 5 knots and surf zone is textured and weak.

We expect north-east winds at 5 to 10 knots later this morning, going south-east at 10 knots this afternoon. Should be a beautiful beach day for a walk with your love later on this afternoon.  

We have a high tide at 11:17 a.m. Low tide will be at 5:20 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is reading 1 foot at 11 seconds in a long period south-east ground swell, pushing against a fresh, short-period north wind-swell: 2 feet at 3 seconds.

Mid-to-late week, look for smaller surf as high pressure sets up over our marine area. This trend lasts through the weekend, as of now. Looking like a possible low pressure system starting to form off of our coast early next week, but it’s early. We’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, enjoy this nice weather.

Water temp is around 59*.

The NOAA Marine Forecast for our waters calls for: “High pressure will prevail into late week, before a cold front moves through on Saturday. High pressure will return early next week.”

It’s 49* and sunny with light winds. Look for a nice day with a high of 60*, light winds and sun.

Good morning this is Evan with your Ocean Surf Shop report and forecast for Tuesday, February 13 at 8:15 a.m.

Washout surf is semi-clean this morning and running around stomach-chest high. Maybe a slightly larger set. There are definitely waves to surf with the high tide, but it’s textured and somewhat clean faces for sure. Few surfers sending it this morning, and it could be fun if it doesn’t blow out before it cleans up.

Winds are strong, early.  

We expect winds out of the West at 20-25 knots with gusts of up to 35 knots. This afternoon winds taper down to 10-15 knots out of the Northwest through our area.

We have a high tide at 10:27 a.m. Low tide will be at 4:30 p.m., and your next high tide will be at 10:49 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is reading 10.8 feet at 7.7 seconds in a medium period south-west wind swell.  Has size pushing against the forecasted offshore winds.

Today sees strong, side-shore, westerly winds in the morning and a chewed-up surf zone before winds switch for the afternoon(keep an eye on the flags, and try to feel the humidity drop) and clean up the surf (HOPEFULLY). Mid-to-late week, look for smaller surf as high pressure sets up over our marine area. This trend lasts through Friday.

Water temp is around 59*.

The NOAA Marine Forecast for our waters calls for: “A high pressure will build into the region today and prevail into the latter part of the week. A cold front will move through early in the weekend, followed by high pressure early next week.”

It’s 56* but feels like 48 and windy. Look for a high of 62* today with wind and sunshine. Gale force winds in play this morning, so any brave surfers be careful upon sending it.

Sunrise is 7:04 a.m., Sunset 6:03 p.m.

That’s all from us at Ocean Surf Shop. We’ll check back tomorrow.
