Clean early, bump later.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, August 1st at 9:00 a.m.

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  

Mandatory Mask Ordinance enacted by Folly Beach City Council in late June.

Surf at Folly this morning had a fun sesh its running chest/shoulder high in fresh SE ground-swell.

Winds are west/south-west at 5-10 knots and surf is semi-clean, early.

Winds will increase out of the south-west this afternoon at 15-20 knots, making for choppier conditions as the day wears on.

 We came off a high tide at 6:43 a.m. Low tide is at 12:42 a.m., and high tide will be at 7:20 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 6.6 feet at 12 seconds in long period SE swell from Isaias.   

Surf looking fun this morning at Folly in the Chest to shoulder high range. Winds are not to bad yet early. This swell should be slowly building throughout the weekend into early Monday. Isaias is currently looking to put itself right off our beaches Sunday night into Monday. Winds will be hard onshore as a result unfortunately making for tricky conditions much of the event. Look for things to clean up late Monday into Tuesday as this swell slowly begins its fading trend. We will keep you in the loop. But for right now GO SURF!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will prevail into Saturday while a trough of low pressure lingers inland. Hurricane Isaias could affect the area late Sunday into Monday. Atlantic high pressure will then rebuild. Refer to the latest advisory on Hurricane Isaias issued by the National Hurricane Center.”

It’s 80* and cloudy mixed with sun at the beach this morning. Look for a high of 92* at the beach with showers and a thunderstorm today.  

Water temperature is up to 87*.  

Sunrise is at 6:31 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:18 p.m.
