Good Morning. This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, Sept. 18 at 8:15 a.m.
Surf at the Washout this morning is waist to chest high. There is a set to head-high this morning.
There is a bit of backwash at the higher tide, but it should get better in about an hour.
There are about 1/100 of the crowd factor from yesterday’s morning session.
Surf is fairly clean with a north wind at 5 to 10 knots, and we expect north winds at 5 to 10 knots all day, and fairly clean swell.
We had a high tide at dawn, and low tide is at 12:58 p.m., and high tide will be at 7:20 p.m.
Winds are light and north-west at 5 knots. Winds are expected to go north-east at 5 to 10 this afternoon adding some bump to the swell.
Edisto Buoy is reading 6.6 ft. at 11 seconds in long period south-easterly swell. There is a lot of swell at the buoy, and we should have some kind of surf all day.
Hurricane Jose will move north of our swell window today, and we see fading ground swell in the waist to stomach high range with chest high sets. Next up in the batting order is Hurricane Maria, which is now near the Leeward Islands, and should move into the Bahamas later this week. We should see another big ground-swell building Friday and into your weekend. The rest of the work week sees smaller but rideable south-east wind swell with overall clean conditions. Keep an eye on Maria, in case she decides to take a swipe at Charleston.
