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.

SPACE COAST SURF REPORT FOR MAY 23 – 26, 2014

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

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This week’s northeasterly swell has moved out away from our surf zones leaving us with mostly knee-high surf for the day.

Desperate longboarders may find a few sliders along Cocoa Beach’s flatter bottoms during mid-morning’s lower tide. Trace groundswell remnants may send an occasional larger wave worth waiting for.

Saturday’s outlook is for near flat and unrideable surfing conditions. This could be a good day to catch up on chores and surfboard repairs.

Sunday’s surf conditions should improve back into the longboardable range along the better small wave surf spots.

I expect surf size to incease back into the thigh-high range for Memorial Day with semi-bumpy conditions from a northeasterly breeze.

Ocean water temperatures are in the 75 degree range. Wetsuits won’t be necessary, but rashguards and sunscreen are now a must.
