Wave Forecast: Knee. Occ. thigh.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, May 12 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 are knee high with a rare thigh set.  

Winds are north at 15 knots, side-shore. There is plenty of drift, but the surf-zone is clean and weak.  All that beautiful north swell headed straight past Folly to points south.

Look for winds to continue north at 15 to 20 knots today as side-shore and drifty all day.

We have a low tide at 11:20 a.m., and a high at 5:47 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 feet at 11 second in a long-period easterly swell with a north-east short period wind swell, 5 feet at 7 seconds.   

We continue to see strong northerly flow during today pushing up some drifty swell averaging thigh-to-waist high. Low pressure will move west into our marine area overnight through Friday. This swell will be going more easterly – side-shore – for Friday, when surf drops off some. Most swell will pass our beaches headed south. We could potentially see fun surf Saturday and Sunday as the swell rotates more onshore and the winds stay light early in the day Saturday. Sunday, choppy south-west wind swell will pick up for and will stick around for the start of the work 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 clouds this morning. Look for clouds today and rain starting around 3 p.m. this afternoon as this low begins to move into our marine area.  

Water Temperature is has dropped to 72*.

Sunrise is at 6:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:09 p.m.
