Good morning, this is Scott with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, October 9 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at the Washout is knee-to-waist high. It’s not quite as big as yesterday but the sets look fun with a bigger board.

Winds are north at 9 knots, and surf is clean.

Look for north winds all day at 7-10 knots.

High tide is at 10:48 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:59 p.m. The next high tide is at 11:01 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.4 feet at 8 seconds in a south-east swell.

The surf is very clean this morning and fun on a higher liter board. Try and get out at the morning high tide because the low tide will drain everything out. It appears tomorrow will be similar and maybe even better than today so keep an eye on the report tomorrow.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A complex storm system will bring periods of unsettled weather through Saturday. Weak high pressure will then build into the region and persist through the following week.”

It’s foggy and 71* this morning. Look for a high of 78* today. We should see mostly cloudy skies and rain showers in the area today.

Water temperature is 79*.  

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:55 p.m.

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

Surf at the Washout is waist-to-stomach high. There is a bigger set. It looks fun. It’s a little soft at the higher tide, but worth a check if you have the time this morning.  

Winds are north at 10 to 12 knots, and surf is fairly clean.

Look for moderate north-east winds at 10 knots today, and we see a semi-choppy surf zone this afternoon, with waves averaging waist high for most of your Friday.

High tide is at 9:50 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:05 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:03 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.9 feet at 8 seconds in an east/south-east swell.

There is some swell at the buoy, and it’s a decent morning of rideable surf out here at Folly. This trend should continue today surf averaging waist high late week. We have a home-grown low-pressure system in the Atlantic near our marine area through late week and a low moving from the west as well. Look for semi-choppy conditions the storm systems move through our marine area today. We should see rideable, semi-choppy wind-swell begin to fade some Saturday afternoon, dropping off some Sunday and into the work week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A complex storm system will bring periods of unsettled weather through Saturday. Weak high pressure will then build into the region and persist through the following week.”

It’s cloudy and 72* this morning. Look for a high of 76* today. We should see mostly cloudy skies and rain showers in the area today.
