Parking: Yes.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, September 15 at 8:30 a.m.

Our friend Gary Wilson just brought a whole bunch of boards to the shop. Come check them out while we still have some in stock.

Surf at the Washout is knee-high at the low tide this morning. It could pick up some for the long-board glide later this morning as the tide comes in, but it’s not too promising.

Winds are east at 5 knots, and surf zone is semi-clean. Just not much surf today.

Look for south-east winds at 5 to 8 knots by afternoon, increasing 10 to 12 knots late day.  

We have a low tide at 9:22 a.m., and a high tide will be at 4:10 p.m. The next low tide is at 10:21 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 1.7 ft. at 7 seconds in a medium period south-east swell. This lazy, medium period swell should build over the next few days.

We have small surf today and with high-pressure setting up inland of our marine area. Swell should be building as an area of low pressure now called Invest-96L is north of the Bahamas. This could push in some swell Thursday into Friday. Something to keep an eye on for development. Surf won’t likely be too big, but there could be some fun ground-swell for the high volume board with lighter local winds. There is also Invest-95L coming off the coast of Africa and moving westward. It’s a long way out. But look for possible development of this system. It could be a wave maker during the middle to latter part of next week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Between weak inland high pressure and low pressure passing offshore, a coastal trough will prevail through late week. High pressure should then expand into the region this weekend into early next week.”
