Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, April 17 at 8:30 a.m.
Tons of new spring gear in now. We are STOKED and STOCKED! Come check it out.
Surf at the Washout is running flat to knee high.
Wind is out of the north-west at 10 to 15 knots, and surf zone is clean.
Look for westerly winds at 15 knots this afternoon, and surf should have some cross-shore texture in it this afternoon.
High tide will be at 9:34 a.m. Low tide will be at 3:34 pm. The next high tide is at 9:48 p.m.
The Edisto buoy reading 1 ft. at 10 seconds in east/south-east swell.
Surf looks small today, with off-shore winds and clean conditions. We see short period south-west wind chop swell build for Wednesday into the waist to stomach high range with weak, choppy conditions. This trend continues on Thursday but fades some Thursday night as a dry cold front passes the area. Swell builds on Friday in a high angle drifty north-east wind swell, this fades out some for Saturday before south-east trade wind swell fills in late Sunday into early next week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will build in behind a cold front today and then persist through Wednesday. After a brief warmup, a dry cold front should then pass through Thursday night followed by cooler high pressure through the end of the week. Unsettled weather could return early next week.”
It is a chilly 44* and sunny this morning. Look for a nice beach day with a high of 70* and bright sunshine.
Water temperature is around 64*.
Sunset is at 7:51 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:46 a.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, April 16 at 8 a.m.
Tons of new spring gear in now. We are STOKED and STOCKED! Come check it out.
Surf at the Washout is running waist to chest high. Maybe a bit bigger on some sets. There is a left-handed barrel to be had if you’re able.
Wind is out of the west south west at 15 to 18 knots, and surf is side-chore with and crossed up with the wind, but it looks fun, early. It’s drifty out there, up the beach – south-to-north. You’ll have to walk down the beach and float.
We see strong westerly winds at 20 to 25 knots today LIKELY beating down the surf by late afternoon. There might be a few leftovers as the tide comes in late day.
High tide will be at 8:52 a.m. Low tide will be at 2:51 pm. The next high tide is at 9:05 p.m.
The Edisto buoy reading 11.5 ft. at 7 seconds in west/south-westerly wind waves, with a high westerly angle pushing surf away from the beach.
We have leftover south-westerly swell in the water this morning with junky conditions and west/south-west winds at 15 to 20 knots. Surf gets beat down by westerly winds this afternoon and should average thigh high with a bigger set at low tide. Look for a waist high wave at the incoming late today with windy condtions. A cold front passed over night, and surf looks to be small through mid-week, before we see south-west wind chop swell Thursday. Look for another strong suck-up wind swell Sunday into Monday a week out. We’ll keep you updated.
