Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January 25 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 or on the first two weekends of March. Sorry for any inconvenience of confusion this might have caused.
Surf at the Washout this morning is ankle to knee high with choppy, side-shore, drifty conditions.
Winds are north/north-east at 15 to 18 knots. We see winds from the north-east at 10 to 15 knots today with choppy surf in the forecast.
We are coming off a low tide this morning, and high tide will be at 1:38 p.m. The next low tide will be at 7:58 p.m.
Edisto buoy is reading 5.9 ft. at 6 seconds in very steep, high angled north/north-east wind waves, moving past our beaches.
We see weak, high angled north-east winds swell today average knee to thigh high at high tide with choppy conditions. High pressure moves into our marine area for the rest of the work week, and north-east wind swell should build a bit for Friday. We expect a Bermuda high type of system in the Western Atlantic for the weekend with decent on-shore east/south-east fetch, which should create some swell this weekend as winds trend easterly keeping some bump and chop in the swell. Surf should build Sunday as a cold front approaches, and swell looks to continue for Monday as a low moves 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 in the weekend into early next week, so that might be our best bet for some surf this 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.”
It is 40* this morning with a bunch of sun. We see sun all day with a high of around 54*.
Water temperature is up, it’s now 48*, which is still pretty darn cold.
Sunset is at 5:45 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:17 a.m.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, January 24 at 8:30 a.m.     

We are preparing for the Icebox Open, to be held one weekend in February. We will wait for a weekend with good waves and have around $2000 in cash and prizes across the divisions. More details to come 

Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh with clean conditions.

Winds are light North at 5-10 knots.  We see winds turn more southerly later in the day at 5-10 knots this afternoon, and surf should stay clean and glassy.

High tide will be at 12:40 am followed by low tide at 7:03 p.m.

Edisto buoy is reading 1.3 ft. at 6 seconds in very steep angled period SSW wind swell.   

Surf gone small for today. Waves at the washout are knee to thigh high in clean conditions. High pressure moves in for the rest of the work week, leaving us with small surf conditions. We expect a Bermuda high type of system in the Western Atlantic for the weekend with decent off-shore fetch pointed at our beaches. This should keep some decent surf in the forecast for the weekend, so that might be our best bet for some surf this week. 

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail today as a weak coastal trough moves inland. A cold front will move through the region Tuesday morning, followed by high pressure through the end of the work week. Another cold front will likely impact the area early next week.”

It is 47* this morning with a bunch of sun. We see sun all day with a high of around 58*

Water temperature is 46*.

Sunset is at 5:42 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:19 a.m.
