Thursday, August 18

Side-shore, semi-chop.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Flat. Maybe knee.
Traffic: Not bad.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None. The golf carts are almost gone.

Good morning, this is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, August 18 at 8:30 a.m.  

We just received a shipment of Catch Surf Logs in 6’, 7’, 8’ and 9’. Come snag one before they are all gone again.

Kind of like a broken record here, but waves at Folly this morning are flat to knee high.

Winds are north/north-east at 10 to 12 knots and surf zone is side-shore and semi-choppy.

Look for winds to pick up out of the east at 10 to 15 knots later today, and we’ll see surface chop with small waves.

Tide is coming in, and high tide will be at 1:48 p.m., and low tide will be at 8:05 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2 feet at 4 seconds in a short period easterly wind swell, with a medium-period, east/south easterly swell 1.3 feet at 9 seconds.

Not much swell at the buoy, and waves are flat this morning. It’s looking pretty small through the weekend, with no real swell makers in our vicinity, and s stalled frontal boundary lingering in in our marine area. Some charts are showing an increase in wave size about 10 days out, and there should be some hurricanes to track by late next week. Keep your eye on it.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “A stalled front will linger in the vicinity through early next week.”

Water Temperature is around 83*.

It’s 76* and cloudy this morning. We see a high of 80* today with passing clouds and some thunderstorms in the evening.

Sunrise is at 6:45 a.m., and sunset will be at 8 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
