Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, May 12 at 8:30 a.m.

We have about 20 brand new G. Wilson boards that just arrived in the shop. Longboards, mid-lengths fish and some shortboards. Come see what’s new and get ready for summer surf.

Waves at The Washout this morning are knee high with a rare thigh set.  

Winds are north at 15 knots, side-shore. There is plenty of drift, but the surf-zone is clean and weak.  All that beautiful north swell headed straight past Folly to points south.

Look for winds to continue north at 15 to 20 knots today as side-shore and drifty all day.

We have a low tide at 11:20 a.m., and a high at 5:47 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 feet at 11 second in a long-period easterly swell with a north-east short period wind swell, 5 feet at 7 seconds.   

We continue to see strong northerly flow during today pushing up some drifty swell averaging thigh-to-waist high. Low pressure will move west into our marine area overnight through Friday. This swell will be going more easterly – side-shore – for Friday, when surf drops off some. Most swell will pass our beaches headed south. We could potentially see fun surf Saturday and Sunday as the swell rotates more onshore and the winds stay light early in the day Saturday. Sunday, choppy south-west wind swell will pick up for and will stick around for the start of the work week.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Low pressure will drift west through the area on Friday, then Atlantic high pressure will rebuild through much of next week.

It’s 67* with clouds this morning. Look for clouds today and rain starting around 3 p.m. this afternoon as this low begins to move into our marine area.  

Water Temperature is has dropped to 72*.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:09 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, May 11 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Washout this morning are knee-to-thigh high. It’s drifty a high-angled north/north-east wind swell. Certainly bring a high-volume board.

Winds are north at 15 to 20.  Surf zone is semi-clean.

Look for winds to continue north at 15 to 20 knots this morning. Fading to around 15 knots late day. We see a drifty, side-shore surf zone today.

Low tide is at 10:30 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:56 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 feet at 12 seconds in a long period east/south-east swell, with an east/north-east wind swell 7 feet at 7 seconds.  

We see strong northerly flow during the middle of the work week. This will send in high angled north-east wind-swell, and most swell will pass our beaches, but there might be a drifty longboard wave out there through Thursday. We see changes late week when low pressure is predicted to form to move into our marine area with blocking high pressure to the north. We could potentially see fun surf Friday into the weekend as the swell rotates more on-shore. Something to keep an eye on for sure. We’ll keep you updated.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will persist through tonight. Low pressure over the Atlantic will drift west through the area on Friday, then Atlantic high pressure will gradually rebuild.”

It’s 63* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 76* with sunshine today. There is a small craft advisory in effect.

Water Temperature is has dropped to 72*.

Sunrise is at 6:24 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:08 p.m.

Good morning, this isBates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, May 10 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Washout this morning are knee-to-thigh high and looks to push a waist set as the tide comes in. It’s a high-angled north/north-east swell. Not too bad for the high-volume board.

Winds are north/north-west at 10 knots, and surf zone is clean with a slight drift from north to south.

Look for winds to increase from the north at 15 to 20 knots this afternoon. We see a drifty, side-shore surf zone today.

Low tide is at 9:39 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:02 p.m.. The next low tide at 10:01 p.m

The Edisto Buoy is reading 7 feet at 7 seconds in a mix of easterly swell and east/north-east wind swell.

We see strong northerly flow to start the work week. This will send in high angled north-east wind swell, and most swell will pass our beaches, but there might be a drifty longboard wave out there through Friday. We see changes late week when low pressure is predicted to form to our north-east, off the mid-Atlantic states, with blocking high pressure to the north. We could potentially see fun surf Saturday through Monday as the swell rotates more on-shore. Something to keep an eye on for sure. We’ll keep you updated.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will persist through Wednesday. Atlantic low pressure will pass close to the area on Friday, then a weak trough will linger in the vicinity through early next week.”

It’s 60* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 70* with sunshine today. We have perfect spring beach weather.  

Water Temperature is has dropped to 72*.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, May 9 at 8:30 a.m.  

Waves at The Washout this morning are ankle-knee with a thigh high set. It’s chilly and windy so if you need to get in the water definitely bring the neoprene for the morning.

Winds are north at 15 to 20 knots, and surf is side-shore with some chop in the surf zone. There is a current down the beach, which should continue to increase today.   

Look for winds to continue north today at 15 to 20 knots. We see drifty, small north wind swell today.

It is low tide at time of report. High tide is at 3:06 p.m., and low tide will be at 8:58 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.0 feet at 7.7 seconds in a short period north wind swell. This is passing straight by our beaches.

We see strong northerly flow to start the work week. This will send in high angled north-east wind swell, and most swell will pass our beaches, but there might be a drifty longboard wave out there starting Monday. We see changes mid-week when low pressure is predicted to form to our north-east, off the mid-Atlantic states, with blocking high pressure to the north. This could push up a high angled north-east swell Wednesday into Thursday. Swell looks like it will have a lot of north in it mid-week. We could potentially see fun surf Friday into Saturday of this week as the swell rotates more on-shore as the low sits in our swell window. Something to keep an eye on for sure. We’ll keep you updated.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will build over the area through the middle of this week, then Atlantic low pressure will move through Friday and Friday night. A weak surface trough could affect the area early next week.”

It’s 56* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 73* with sunshine starting around noon today.

Water Temperature is around 75*.  It might drop a few degrees this week with the northerly flow.

Sunrise is at 6:25 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:07 p.m.
