Good Morning Surfers!

 SURF REPORT FOR SATURDAY, FEB. 8, 2014

This weekend’s surf is driven by a distant Easterly groundswell source.

NOAA’s local buoys are still showing an easterly swell as our dominate swell source, but its fetch weakens as it nears our surf zones.

Today’s surf will average only thigh-high with clean lines from an early westerly breeze. The nearby swell will still produce rare bigger sets worth waiting for.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA  – Those of you seeking an early “Dawn Patrol” session will find waves in the waist-high range with semi-clean surface conditions from a northerly wind.

This weekend’s surf is driven by a distant Easterly groundswell source.

Lower tide occuring during the morning hours will help to provide better surfable waves at all popular surf spots.

SATURDAY’S SURF WILL BE IDEAL FOR LONGBARDING

Saturday’s surf will probably run in the thigh- to waist-high range with cleaner conditions expected from offshore winds.

These conditions could be ideal for longboarding, but shortboarders may have to look around to locate waves more suitable for their smaller boards.

SUNDAY SURF WILL CONTINUE IN THIGH-TO-WAIST RANGE

I plan to surf early and through the incoming high tide push.

I believe Sunday’s surf will continue in the thigh- to waist-high range with semi-clean conditions again from northwesterly winds.

My outlook for this coming week is for the easterly groundswell to continue to send thigh-high surf our way all week. Watch for some days to be bigger than others with variable winds.

• Water Temp for Friday…64-65
• Water Temp for Sat-Sun…65-67
