Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, April 5th at 8:30 a.m.  

Farewell Mick Fanning! Congrats to Italo and Steph on their wins last night at Bells!

Surf at the Washout is running in the shin to knee high range with sideshore and textured conditions.

Winds are strong out of the NNE at 15-20 knots so the waves are running down the beach.

Winds are expected to lighten this afternoon before shifting S tonight then SSE tomorrow at about 5 knots.

Low tide will be at 6:03 pm followed by high at 12:05 pm.

The Edisto buoy reading 6.9 ft. at 5 seconds in a combination steep NNE wind swell mix.

We see small scale surf over the next couple of days, with potential for waves over the weekend as winds lay down in between storm activity and as a cold front moves through the area.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Dry high pressure will prevail across the region through Friday. A cold front will affect the area Saturday and Saturday night. High pressure will briefly rebuild on Sunday, then low pressure will move through Sunday night and Monday. Dry high pressure will then build over the area Tuesday through late next week.” 

It is 51* with sun and clouds this morning. Look for a high of 61* with wind and clouds with some sun mixed in.  Water temperature is around 60*. Sunset is at 7:43 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:03 a.m.

Always a new batch of boards in here! We’ve got a new batch of Stewarts and Eaveys on the way! Come in and find your next board!

Surf at the Washout running in the thigh to waist high range with choppy conditions.

Winds are strong out of the southwest at 15-20 knots so the waves are a little disorganized.

We’ve got thigh to waist high surf this today with a SSE wind and choppy conditions.  A cold front moves through tonight, making this wave bump appear today and into Thursday. Winds will remain from the South today before switching to moderate winds out of the North into Thursday.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. A cold front is forecasted to move through late Wednesday, followed by high pressure for the rest of the work week. A series of disturbances will bring unsettled weather to the area this weekend.

It is 67* with sun and clouds this morning. Look for a high of 74* with wind and clouds with some sun mixed in.

Happy Folly Election Day! Don’t forget to vote, and swing by afterwards to see all the new spring gear.

Surf at the Washout is running in the knee high range. There is close to no visibility even from the shore due to the fog, so it’s hard to tell what’s happening past the shoreline.

Winds are light out of the South at 3 knots, and surf is glassy.

Winds are expected to remain from the South today and increase in the afternoon to 15-20 knots.

The first high tide will be at 10:41 am followed by low tide at 4:43 pm. The next high tide is at 11:10 pm.

The Edisto buoy reading 3.9 ft. at 4.3 seconds in a combination SSE/ESE swell/wind swell mix.

Surf is expected to be small the first half of the week with high pressure in the area.  A cold front moves through tomorrow, making a possible bump appear later Wednesday, into Thursday. Winds will remain from the South into tomorrow before switching hard out of the North into Thursday.

Fairly dismal surf this AM. The tide is up in the rocks so it may get a little better after it backs out. This swell continues overnight and into the start of the work week, before we see a choppy south-west wind swell average waist to stomach high for Wednesday ahead of an approaching cold front.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through Tuesday. A cold front will move through the area Wednesday or Wednesday night, followed by more high pressure for the second half of next week.”
