Friday, September 17

Clean. Nice.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Waist-to-stomach.
Traffic: Some.
Parking: Some.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, September 17 at 8:30 a.m.

Our friend Gary Wilson just brought a whole bunch of boards to the shop. Come check them out while we still have some in stock.

Surf at the Washout is waist-to-stomach high and very clean. There might be a bigger set.

It is kind of closing out at the lower tide this morning, but I’d expect it to get a push as the tide comes in. There is some swell out there, but the tide is going out this morning.  

Winds are east at 5 to 8 knots.

Winds stay north this morning, then look for south-east winds increasing 10 to 12 knots late day. Surf should stay clean until later this afternoon.

We have a low tide at 11:30 a.m., and a high tide at 6:09 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell.  

There is some swell out here this morning, and surf should be building a bit when the tide comes in late morning as an area of low pressure now called Disturbance Number 2 is moving away from our swell window. We expect smaller waves this weekend. There is also Tropical Depression 1 in the Central Atlantic moving westward. It’s a long way out. But look for possible development of this system. It could be a wave maker during the middle to latter part of next week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Weak high pressure will persist across inland areas while low pressure passes well offshore through late this week. High pressure will then expand across the region this weekend into early next week, before a cold front shifts across the area during the second half of next week.”

It’s 77* this morning and cloudy. Look for a high of 82* with clouds and a 30% chance for a shower this afternoon.  

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:23 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
