South Carolina Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the South Carolina Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the South Carolina coastline are also listed below.

South Carolina Surf Breaks

Best to surf towards the beginning of the spring (March and April). Long flat beaches on the coast, waves between 1-4ft and taller with thunderstorms and tropical storms.....Katherine Krehbiel

South Carolina's wide continental shelf dampens the swell generated in the Atlantic. The fall tends to have the best surf due to it being hurricane season. Summers tend to be flat, with the odd occasional wave if the wind is your friend.
