Good Morning, Surfers!

The combination of less wind and dropping tide could make for fun conditions today during the late afternoon for after school or after work surf sessions at your favorite surf spots.

Ocean water temperatures will average 70 degrees and could warm into the 72 degree range by Sunday. A spring suit or a vest may be all that is needed for an early morning surf session. (Image for SpaceCoastDaily.com)

SURF REPORT FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 2014

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA –  Look for small scale surf today in the knee- to thigh-high range. A light southwesterly breeze will provide clean lines ideal for longboarding as the tide drops this morning.

Bob Freeman has been surfing Brevard's waves since 1966.

Remnants from a distant northeasterly groundswell will send occasional bigger sets worth waiting for.

A vest may be all that will be needed for our 72 degeree ocean temperatures and sunny skies this weekend.

Saturday’s surf heights will remain in the knee- to thigh-high range with small clean lines again from a light offshore breeze.

I expect bumpy surface conditions to return on Sunday as winds become more southeasterly. Wave heights will increase into the thigh-high range.
