Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 14 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 for the winner. More details to come!
Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh high. There is a plus set early, but it’s blown out.
Surf is side-shore, drifty and semi-chppy.
Winds are north at 15 to 20 knots, and we expect winds to decrease late this afternoon north at 10 knots. Surf stays side-shore, drifty and clean today.
Tide is going out, and low tide will be at 12:08 p.m. High tide will be at 6:02 p.m.
Edisto buoy is reading 6.6 ft. at 6secs in high angled north/north-east wind swell.
The south-east ground swell we enjoyed this week has faded, replaced by a combination of north-east wind swell and easterly swell. We see a combination of north-east swell and north winds to start the work week, with waves averaging thigh high in drifty, clean conditions. A cold front passage Wednesday keeps north winds and colder temperatures in our forecast, and high angled north-east wind waves in the forecast.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will build over the region today, then prevail through Tuesday. A cold front will sweep across the Southeast on Wednesday, followed by dry high pressure into late week. Warmer conditions arrive this weekend before another cold front approaches early next week.”
It is a chilly 33 with a wind chill of 25 this morning. It is sunny. We see sun today and a high of only 45*.
Water temperature is up and hovering around 45*.
Sunset is at 5:35 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:21 a.m.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, January 13 at 8:30 a.m.       

The water temperature went UP to 44*, so put on your neoprene if you plan on surfing this mid-week swell. We have booties, gloves and hoods. 

Surf at the Washout this morning is waist to stomach high with chest sets in ESE swell. It should get a push with the incoming tide early afternoon, but it still looks pretty fun.  

Surf is bumpy and semi-clean. It looks like another fun morning of surf but will fade through the day

Winds are west at 15 to 20 knots, and we expect winds to decrease this afternoon NW at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon, with bumpy, semi-clean but fading surf all day.

Low tide is at 11:19 a.m., and High tide is at 5:25 p.m.

Edisto buoy is reading 8.2 ft. at 9secs in a combination of east/south-east swell and south-east wind swell.

Look for fun, semi-clean south-east ground swell to continue for the beginning of today. We see winds trend westerly at 15 to 20 knots this morning, and surf may increase in size as the tide comes in early afternoon if the wind doesn’t beat it down. Sunday see’s leftover south-east swell average thigh to waist high with off-shore winds. Could be a nice clean long-board session for Sunday. We see small but long-boardable south-east ground swell for next week. 

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will approach from the west today and move through the area this evening. A secondary front will arrive Saturday night. Cool high pressure will then settle over the area Sunday into early next week before another front brings even colder air for the second half of next week.”

It is a chilly 39 with clouds this morning. Expect a high of 58* with sun and clouds today.

Water temperature is at 44*.

Sunset is at 5:33 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:22 a.m.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January, 11 at 8:30 a.m.      

The water temperature is 42*, so put on your neoprene if you plan on surfing this mid-week swell. We have booties, gloves and hoods. 

Surf at the Washout this morning is waist to stomach high with chest (plus) sets. It is closing out a bit at the morning’s low tide, but should get a push with the incoming tide. Surf is choppy, foggy and drifty, with a slight drifty down the beach from north to south.

Winds are ESE at 10 knots, and expected to stay ESE but increase to 15 to 25 knots today.

Low tide is at 9:47 a.m. and high tide will be at 3:46 p.m. The next low tide is at 9:51 p.m.

Edisto buoy is reading 8.9 ft. at 9 seconds in a combination of north-east wind swell and long period south-east swell.

We see ESE winds at 10 to 15 this morning, increasing to 15-25 later today, and surf should increase in size as the tide comes in under choppy conditions. We have building east wind swell and south-east ground swell in the waist to chest high range over the next several days, with winds trending ESE for today, and going south Friday. There should be plenty of swell in the water, but it might not be very clean. A front approaches late Friday, and winds go south-west and blow strong by Friday afternoon when surf gets side-shore and choppy.  Saturday morning we see a quick clean up.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will slide into the Atlantic today while a coastal trough lingers offshore. The trough will push inland on Thursday and then lift north of the area. A cold front will move through the area Friday night followed by a secondary front Saturday night. Cool high pressure will return late in the weekend into early next week.”

It is 61 with clouds and some fog this morning. Expect a high of 68* and sun with periods of clouds today.

Water temperature is down to 42*.

Sunset is at 5:30 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:22 a.m.
