Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, May 23 at 7:00 a.m.

The City of Folly Beach is now open. Social distancing rules will be enforced. Please see the City of Folly Beach’s Web Site for more information.

We will be open from 9:15 a.m. until 6 p.m. Please follow social distancing protocols when shopping.

Waves at Folly this morning are knee-thigh high. It is very soft at the morning’s high tide, but there are some rides to be had on a high-volume board, or long-board.

Winds are light and variable early this morning making for clean surface conditions.       

Winds are predicted to pick up from the south-west at 5-10 knots today adding a little texture to it during afternoon hours.  

High tide is at 8:30 a.m., and low tide will be at 2:16 p.m. The next high tide is at 8:41 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft at 9 seconds in a long period easterly swell from what’s left of tropical depression Arthur. This swell is mostly passing our shores.  

We see small high angled easterly ground swell and some south-east wind swell continue today. Best for the longboard. Surf continues its fading trend through the rest of Memorial Day weekend as high pressure begins to settle itself over our marine area. Looking ahead into early next week high pressure moves offshore and looks to produce a decent shot of ESE trade-swell beginning mid-week. Looks like the swell should hold on for a few days we will keep you posted!”

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stalled front will remain over or near the area this weekend. High pressure will then build to the north early next week and should generally prevail through the week.”

It’s 70 degrees at first light with sun and a few clouds this morning. Look for a high of 88.

Water temperature is around 75*.  Back to boardies and a rash-guard.

Sunrise is at 6:16 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:16 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
