Saturday, May 14

Clean, early. Semi-choppy later.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thigh. Inconsistent. Could build some mid-afternoon.
Traffic: 'Bout to get really bad.
Parking: Some early. None this afternoon.
Dangers: Traffic.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday May 14 at 8:30 a.m.

We have about 20 brand new G. Wilson boards that just arrived in the shop. Longboards, mid-lengths fish and some shortboards. Come see what’s new and get ready for summer surf.

Waves at The Washout this morning is knee-high with a thigh set. It is weak at the higher tide this morning, but doesn’t look too bad for a longboard glide. We do expect swell to slowly build this afternoon.

Winds are north at 5 knots and surf-zone is clean.  

Look for winds to come south at 10 to 12 knots, and surf will likely chop up some later today.  

Tide is going out. Low tide will be at 12:56 p.m. High tide will be at 7:25 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 feet at 8 seconds in an easterly swell with a short-period east/south-east wind swell 1 foot at 4 seconds.

Look for surf to pick up some this  afternoon as the tide comes in late day when we see southerly winds start to blow in some of that swell that’s been passing us by over the past few days. Surf should be fun on Sunday as winds stay light early in the day and southerly flow continues. Nothing too big, but likely rideable for the weekend warrior. This lazy south-swell should continue into the first part of the work week, going more south-west for Tuesday and into mid-week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Low pressure will drift west through the area on Friday, then Atlantic high pressure will rebuild through much of next week.

It’s 67 with dense fog this morning. Look for a high of 77* with partly cloudy skies and lots and lots of traffic.

Water Temperature is still around 72* but will go up this week with warmer temperatures on tap.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
