Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, January 29 at 8:30 a.m.
According to the City of Folly Beach, we cannot hold the Icebox Open until after February 14, so we will plan to hold the contest during one of the last two weekends of February and the first two weekends of March.
Surf at the Washout this morning is waist to chest high. Occasionally there is a shoulder set.
Winds are NNW at 10 knots, and surf is clean. We see north-west winds at 10 to 15 knots today, and surf should stay clean.
The first low tide will be at 11:56 a.m. followed by high tide at 6 p.m.
Edisto buoy is reading 6.9 ft. at 9 seconds in south-east ground swell. So we have plenty of swell at the buoy, and we expect waves all day.
Look for ground swell to start closing out on the lower tide late morning. We see surf building on the incoming tide this afternoon. Look for surf to average waist to stomach high with chest sets in a clean south-east ground swell today. Winds are expected to stay off-shore today, so hopefully it won’t blow too hard. Ground swell is in the water, so look for another fun day of surf. We see surf slowly fading overnight, with some waist high leftovers for your Tuesday. Surf falls off some mid-week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will move off the coast this morning. Cool high pressure will build over the area through the middle of the week before moving off the coast Thursday. A cold front will move through Friday morning, followed by high pressure building from the north. Another front will affect the area Sunday.”
It is 58* this morning with clouds and light showers. Look for clouds today and a high of 60*.
Water temperature is up, it’s now 51*.
Sunset is at 5:45 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:17 a.m.

 Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 28th at 8:30 a.m.

 According to the City of Folly Beach, we cannot hold the Icebox Open until after February 14, so we will plan to hold the contest during one of the last two weekends of February and the first two weekends of March.

 Surf at the Washout this morning is stomach high with chest sets at the morning’s low tide.  It is closing out a bit.

 Winds are NNW at 5 knots. Surf is perfectly clean. We expect winds to switch S later today at 10 knots.  Thunderstorms are expected which will likely keep the surf mostly clean.

 The first low tide will be at 10:58 am followed by high tide at 4:58 pm.

 Edisto buoy is reading 6.9 ft. at 8 seconds in a combination of NW wind swell and building ESE swell. So there is some building swell at the buoy.

 We see surf building on the incoming tide-look for surf to average waist to stomach high (plus) in a combo wind and ground swell today into tomorrow. Wind is expected to switch SE overnight and into the morning, switching again to NW winds.  Regardless, wind is expected to stay under 10 knots into the coming day before increasing on Tuesday. Ground swell is in the water, yet the wind activity will really dictate the conditions.  Keep your eyes on it and check back tomorrow morning for more.

 Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will move SE over the region today, then stall over the waters tonight. A series of low pressures will form along the front over the southern waters late tonight, then move NE across the waters Mon. A stronger low will form along the front over the southern and central waters Mon night, move NE across the area Tue.”  

It is 57* this morning with clouds and light showers. Look for clouds today and a high of 66*.  

 Water temperature is up, it’s now 50*. You’ll still need a 4/3, booties, gloves and a hood if you want to surf this weekend.

 Sunset is at 5:45 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:17 a.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, January 27 at 8:30 a.m. .
According to the City of Folly Beach we cannot hold the Icebox Open until after February 14, so we will plan to hold the contest during one of the last two weekends of February and the first two weekends of March. Sorry for any inconvenience of confusion this might have caused.
Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh high with waist high (plus) sets at the morning’s low tide. It is closing out a bit.
Winds are north at 5 to 8 knots. Surf is fairly clean but bumpy, early. We expect winds to clock north-east at 10 knots then east at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon. Look for choppy surf later today.
The day’s first low tide will be at 9:55 a.m., and high tide will be at 3:54 p.m.
Edisto buoy is reading 5.9 ft. at 4 seconds in a combination of east wind swell and building south-east swell at 3.9 ft. at 8 seconds. So there is some building swell at the buoy.
We see surf building on the incoming tide in east/south-east winds swell. Look for surf to average waist to stomach high (plus) in east/south-east wind-swell ground-swell combo with some chop from an easterly wind. We expect a Bermuda high type of system in the Western Atlantic for the weekend with decent on-shore east/south-east fetch as high pressure moves off the mid-Atlantic Coast and into the Western Atlantic. Surf should build chest-high (plus) Sunday as a cold front approaches with moderate south-easterly winds. Swell looks to continue and clean up some for Monday as a low moves from the Gulf of Mexico east across northern Florida and offshore of our waters to start the work week, and colder winds trend off-shore. This should keep some decent surf in the forecast for late today and into early next week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail today, then a frontal system will impact the area Sunday and Sunday night. Cooler high pressure will then return for the first part of next week, before moving into the Atlantic during the middle of the week. A cold front may affect the area next Friday.”
It is 52* this morning with clouds. Look for clouds today and a high of 64*.
Water temperature is up, it’s now 50*. You’ll still need a 4/3, booties, gloves and a hood if you want to surf this weekend.
Sunset is at 5:45 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:17 a.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, January 26 at 8:15 a.m.

Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh high in north-east wind chop surf.
Winds are north/north-east at 10 to 12 knots. Surf is side-shore and choppy.
We have a low tide at 8:47 a.m., and a high tide will be at 2:46 p.m. The next low tide is at 9:01 p.m.
Edisto buoy is reading 3.9 ft. at 7 seconds in high angled east/north-east wind waves, and easterly swell at 1.7 ft. at 10 seconds.
We see weak, high angled north-east winds swell today average knee to thigh high at high tide with choppy conditions. We expect a Bermuda high type of system in the Western Atlantic for the weekend with decent on-shore east/south-east fetch as high pressure moves off the mid-Atlantic Coast. This should create some swell this weekend as winds trend moderate from the east/south-east keeping some bump and in the swell. Surf should build Sunday as a cold front approaches. Swell looks to continue for Monday as a low moves from the Gulf of Mexico east across northern Florida and offshore of our waters to start the work week. This should keep some decent surf in the forecast for late Saturday and into early next week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail into Saturday, with a frontal system to impact the area Sunday and Sunday night. Cooler high pressure will then return for the first part of next week, before moving into the Atlantic during the middle of the week. A cold front may affect the area next Friday.”
It is 41* this morning with sun and a few clouds. Look for a high of 58* today and sun with some clouds.
Water temperature is up, it’s now 49*. You’ll still need a 4/3, booties, gloves and a hood if you want to surf this weekend.
Sunset is at 5:45 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:17 a.m.
