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 MAY 1 – 3, 2014

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA –  Plenty of chest-high, semi-clean surf all day on Friday.

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

This morning’s surf is running in the waist- to chest-high range with semi-clean conditions from a steady southerly wind.

Mid-morning’s southwesterly winds will clean up the northeasterly groundswell lines. Expect bigger surf and cleaner conditions along South Brevard’s surf spots.

SATURDAY, MAY 3: Saturday’s wave heights will decrease into the waist- to chest-high range with cleaner conditions from an offshore breeze. The northeasterly groundswell source will again produce bigger surf along Brevard’s southernmost beaches.

SUNDAY, MAY 4: I expect Sunday’s surf to decrease into the waist-high range with bumpy conditions from a steady northerly wind.

Ocean water temperatures are in the 70 degree range. A vest or springsuit may be required in the morning or during cloudy conditions. Vests may be all that is needed by Sunday.
